Need to replace the oil pan, or take it off and find someone who can repair aluminum. I would go with the new pan to be on the safe side though.

  • This requires careful application of an ez out or thread repair kit very likely these are tapered threads and in aluminum. can be tricky and should be attempted by someone with previous thread repair experience, the pipe must be removed and if the threads are not damaged you can just clean up the area and re install a new sensor ( thread sealing tape is often used) you must not get any of the tape in the oil galleries or it can plug up the flow causing engine failure. pay the money now to have it fixed correctly, or ensure who works on it is knowledgable or the cost will be considerably more, torq the fitting to the proper spec not till you think it is tight, good luck

Coolant and oil leak


have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

I always use white silicone - putty always cracks and leaks. Silicone makes a sort of custom rubber gaskit and never leaks. Clean off with paper towels immediately before it skins over

Hi there I had the SAME problem in my 318i. I cracked mine driving over a parking barrier in the road (long story!) Anyway. Take your car to a garage and they will drain all your oil out of the engine and sump area. They can then inject a resin into the hairline crack and once it's all set, they'll put the oil back into your car and you won't have any leak from that area again! try that first before getting a new sump. As the area needs to be bone dry from oil, they draining of oil out of your car and the waiting for the resin to set make it pretty much an all day job. Good luck with it all if you've not repaired it yet.
