Mein Auto: 1995 E36 M3 GT (EURO)
Just before the new year the engine went back in, clean, with a new valvecover, modifited crankcase wentilation, the two missing gaskets installed in the rear turbo and some other small things.
The past days I have been chasing away the last of the oil leaks, on on the oil drain flange on the front turbo and a second one on the front of the engine where the cylinder head meets the camshatf tray.

Some pictures:
The oil leak on the front of the engine




Old faithfull.. silicone gasket


It was missing a hexagon bolt here, which might have caused the leak




And this bolt was also not tightened.


Faulti gasket, also the flange was not flush so I grinded it down using a 180 paper, followed by a 500, and installed a new gasket, I hope it has solved that leak.

Ready (again) taking my 3year old son for a ride
