Mein Auto: 1979 BMW 528i
Also i believe the engine has a very nasty leak that dosent hinder performance. There seams to be a good bit of oil near the transmission where it meets the engine. Im assuming the rear main/ crank seal is very worn as i do occasionoly get blue smoke in the exhaust aswell as some blow-by. However it is totally dependant on how you drive it, drive it hard it eats more oil, Drive it easy it dosent. The guy had Engine fix leak in the rear and i know it was dailey driven for a good couple of years before it sat for four months. Also the gas tank has a leak at the very top so when you fill the tank or take a corner hard there will be some gas, it is visible from the passenger side is there a good way to go about fixing this?

Also how hard is it to pull these moters? To replace that leaky seal, is it worth it?

Another thing, The fuses seem to be ancient where do i find these types of fuses the weird Metal strip pill looking ones?

thanks!
