Question about 1997 BMW 318
Burning oil would result in blue smoke from the tailpipe
HOWEVER, small leaks do not always show visual signs at the the tailpipe
additionally, most manufactures, including this one, state that burning a quart or two every 3,000 miles is "normal"
while I do not agree with this, short of an engine overhaul there are limited options
BTW.... the last time a 318i was offered in the US was 1998... can you confirm your year/make and model so that I can research any TSB's from BMW?
