Check your PCV valve. Its the device that provides ventilation to the crankcase and valve covers. If its clogged or non functional it will cause the engine to **** or blow air from an area with less resistance, which is probably the filler cap. As its blowing air out of the engine it will shoot a little bit of oil with it

Is there a torque setting to tighten the oil filter cap


Oil Filter, or Oil Filler?

Oil filter, oil the seal, screw up by hand, tighten one quarter turn more.

Oil Filler on top of the Rocker Cover, tighten by hand, no excess pressure.

I have a bmw 330i 2006 and i have oil coming out of the oil filler cap thats on top of the engine what could be the problem because the cap it self looks fine and tight


You may be having problems with the crankcase pressure regulating valve (PCV). If this is clogged or malfunctioning, pressure can build up inside the engine and blow oil out the filler tube.

Remove oil filler cap which is normally on top of the rocker cover look at underside of cap, the side that goes into rocker cover, and if it is covererd in a white oily substance or if the tube that the filler cap goes into has the white gunge in it yo have oil and water / coolant mixing in your engine

filler cap, on valve cover.
bad cap,? stripped out? over tightend by jiphphyboobs.
you will have to force it off and replace it,
a tedious process. get help if not knowing how to proceed.
you dont want cap parts broken off , to fall in there, see?

id attack the top part and collapse it and pull it with no debris.

Where is the filler cap located in my bmw 325i 2002 model


Your question did not specify what "filler cap".
The above response from FTjoe is for the power steering filler cap.

The following RealOEM link is for the engine oil filler cap (Item 4) which is square and black and is on top of the engine. It goes through the plastic cover into the cylinder cover

V6 ENGINE LOSING OIL THROUGH FILLER CAP


The obvious answer would be to replace the filler cap. But I would look int why so much pressure is building under the valve cover. A Chilton/Haynes manual should give you some answers under the trouble-shooting heading.

Why do the water and oil mix and the engin run hot?

Oil is boiling in sump blowing burnt oil fumes out the filler cap


I doubt the oil is boiling in the sump or your engine would show signs of over heating. Change the PCV valve in the valve cover as it may be stuck closed causing internal pressure to build up and escape through the filler cap.

I have an oil leak, oil shows up on top of the engine.


Spray cold engine down with carb cleaner or brake cleaner. Let air out. Keep watch on where you first see the oil. It is most likely from your valve cover gasket.
