It's hard to say if there was any damage. Certainly, opening the oil filter element and finding shavings from the bearings would be evidence of damage. Removing the oil pan would be a lot more...

Did you run it after replacing that spark plug? Could the plug have been loose to start with?

I had that on our 2011 328 and replaced all the spark plugs/coils and it went away. Never gave me any codes which was unusual since it would run like crap and sound awful when it did it.

Those instructions say to remove the intake manifold. No way you need to do that to replace the OFHG!

Just let the dealer fix it if you have CPO, but it sure sounds like the ESS which apparently quite commonly fails.

Sounds like you have a failed eccentric shaft sensor. The valve cover has to come off for replacement. A great video if you want to DIY

Your engine must not have valvetronic. Time to look for other causes. Bad gas, dirty fuel filter, leaky injectors, etc.

You can't actually take the sensor out unless you remove the valve cover. You can clean the contacts where the harness connects to the sensor with electrical contact cleaner or MAF sensor cleaner.

It's possible that it's barely seeping oil. Just a little makes a mess, and it won't show your oil level dropping at all.
