There is a rubber seal behind the oil cooler(that is where the hose connects) the best thing would be to remove the oil filter and oil cooler to replace the seal. I would at least remove the oil filter and try to tighten the large nut that holds the oil cooler on and see if that stops the oil leak

Oil coming out from the middle of my 316 se 2002 plate


Common oil leaks on a 3 series are:
1) Power steering hoses. If you have not yet replaced any power steering hoses on a 2002 I can almost promise you that one or more of them are leaking.
2) Valve cover gasket. Same comment as above. This tends to leak on the exhaust manifold side and stink like burned plastic as the synthetic oil burns on the manifold.
3) Oil line to the VANOS.
4) Oil filter housing.
Oil from any of these leaks will tend to move rearward as it makes its way to the ground.

Had a slight transmission leak,went under and noticed where a couple of the hoses connect with an adapter there was a slight crack in the hose,I cut back the hose a little,the hoses do not fit really tight...


No, the remote oil line hose needs to be replaced. There is an easier fix to this other then replacing the remote oil line. Just to make sure were on the same page, the transmission line has no rubber line and is a one piece metal line from the transmission to the radiator on the passenger side. The remote engine oil line is on the drivers side and is rubber and goes to the radiator and remote oil filter housing. That is the hose that is common to leak at the factory compression clamp where the rubber hose connects to the metal line. The factory compression clamp can be cut off and just place the rubber hose or replace the oil line and replace the compression clamp. Make sure it's a compression clamp and not a hose clamp, the compression clamp has a better all round clamping force to the hose and less to fail then the hose clamps. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and NAPA or Auto Zone will have all the parts you need to get the job done.

Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking out. How do you remove it? Bolt location, etc. The car just dumped almost all it's oil in the driveway while it was idling. The leak appears to be around the...


This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.
