    I lack a lot of info, but I'll do my best. My brother has a 2008/09 x3, there's been oil leaks and he had 2 gaskets replaced at different times. Now there's olddd oil, and new(?) or newish oil. Looking for easiest+cheapest way to diagnose if there's a problem now. Can't afford compression test...

    Hello all, I am new to this forum and to BMW ownership in general. I recently became the proud new owner of a '95 525i sedan. Unfortunately, the rubber trim around the outside of the rear windshield is missing, leaving just the clips that held it in place and the edge of the glass exposed. Right...

    I just replaced the VCG on my 2014 F15 with the N55 engine and everything went right, I'm sure that the VCG is not leaking any more, however I still see smoke in the engine area, very light, not the amount of smoke when the VCG was damaged, is any other source for leaking oil on the F15 or the...

    I have a 2011 328i sedan with around 105k miles We've had an oil leak problem for a while now. First we took it to the dealership, then a different BMW mechanic shop, they said the last mechanic had left the oil filter cap loose. So we get the car back from them, and it is still leaking oil. We...

    Okay so the last few days I have been doing an oil housing gasket on my e39 530i. None the less got it all together it still leaks so I re seated the gasket and used an extremely thin layer of sealant on top just to make things extra good. Currently waiting the the sealant to cure before I start...

    Hi Folks, My oil pan gasket seems to be leaking at a pretty good clip. Last time it was at the dealer they quoted ~$2200 to replace. It sounds like there may be some suspension disassembly involved, but this still seems steep. Does anyone have any DIY info and/or experience on replacing this...
  13. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hey guys had a diagnostics done today came back this was my most urgent repair. Engine oil pan gasket priced at $2370.43. I have no leaks and maintain a good oil change record with her.

    These forums have saved me thousands of dollars and I always look at multiple threads to get ideas. My new-to-me 2009 X5 4.8i (E70) developed a bad oil leak coming from behind the alternator. Almost every post identified the alternator bracket for models without an oil cooler. Mine HAS an oil...
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Here is the video, hope this helps someone doing the job next. I have done many repairs and this one was a nightmare. Mostly, as some members on here said, due to extreme lack of space. Basically, the whole repair is hinged on removing parts just to gain access to a couple bolts (terrible...

    Hi All, I need some help. I have been having a minor oil leak for a while now. Since it was minor I was waiting for the next oil service due date to have it checked.

    Hi folks, Last week, I noticed very small leak in my BMW oil CARTIER (where my idrive screen indicated no loss in oil and no faults in any system). I sent it to the garage and they said they have to change something called 'cartier/cartridge gasket' and then replace the old oil with a new one...
