Mein Auto: 1985 635CSI
oil leaking from my 85 635csi

Good day all, I found a complete 1985 635csi and paid 500.00 for it. It had been sitting outsid for 10 years. The owner quit driving it beacuse of a fuel leak. I found a hole in fuel line and replaced it. It started right up and Idled like it had never been shut off. Over the next 5 weeks I have repaired or replaced all that was wrong with the car and have it running and driving. Last night I installed a universial temp guage as I do not have the one on the dash working yet and took it for a test drive. It ran 160 the whole time and I thought this was it and had hoped to drive it longer next week. To my horror when I pulled back into the garage oil was running out on the floor under the car. I jacked it up and it seems like its coming from the gasket between the oil pan and block. Do you think runing engine flush through it and then draining the oil and putting in new oil and a gasket/seal sweller will help. Any ideas? I dont want to pull the motor it runs to good and I dont want to waste what is left of the summer working on it. Thanks for the help.

I would recommend you ask your question on bigcoupe.com. Great resource for older 6 series.
