    I was finishing up a valve cover gasket swap when I broke a small clip the overflow oil line. This is the line that attaches to the injectors. I am using this name so we have a common understanding of what to call it since that is what it is called on RealOEM. It is part #12 in this link...

    Hello, I recently bought a BMW 335d and after a drive one day I decided to check the oil level and noticed diesel exhaust fumes coming from the oil cap. (I became aware of the issue when the car was 100% stock) I'm confident that it isn't a blown head gasket because there are no bubbles in the...
