Oil Separator Question
Just picked up a 2002 X5 3.0i and now I'm catching wind and reading a potential "oil separator" issue during the cold months. We live in California in the High Desert where it's pretty dry, but still gets cold in the winter, down to 15 degrees or so. Should I be worried, are there any precautions I can take, like change the oil before the winter, during, and after? Would that help? Are there any fixes that have come out?
Just freakin' out a little. I can't afford that to happen, I'd be walking for some time. Probably would have passed on BMW if I'd known that before purchasing it.
