Mein Auto: x-5 sport 3.0
I have a 2002 x-5 3.0 runs great , drives great. I have 224,000 miles and live where it is hot, north georgia, most of the year. I have had to replace the oil separator in the past and it needs it again !!!! WHy doesn't BMW have a replacement part that solves this problem ??? I don't think I should be paying to replace this so often. My 3.0 , 5series (4 ) in a row, never had this problem to my knowledge. Will Bmw warranty this to some degree , since it is a faulty design ??
