    I drive an '03 540i with 168,000 miles. I do not believe any of the previous owners did the timing chain guides. After searching the forums and not finding anything about this, I'm creating my own thread with a few questions: 1 - What could these be? My original thought were timing chain...

    Hi all, My car has done 130k miles now, so I decided to start doing my own oil changes. When I got the filter cap removed, I noticed that the filter element was crushed slightly. When I replaced the new filter onto the spigot with the white rubber seal at the bottom, I could not get it far...

    I am new to german world of engineering. I recently just purchased an E90 06 325i. It has 66k miles on it. I took it to a mechanic to run a thorough inspection on it. They told me that I need the oil filter gasket replaced as well as valve cover gasket replaced. They saw a small leak or...

    2010 750li Can anyone pass along these numbers? My friend has a 535 with the filter in the engine compartment and I had to put the strength of thor on it to get it to finally stop leaking and blowing the o-ring out. I would rather do my own within the specs for sure. Thanks. I am heading to...

    Was replacing OFH after doing gasket replacement. One hole turned out to be stripped. It is the upper bolt hole with the metal guide for the housing. Was going to do a helicoil but turns out the guide sleeve ID will not permit the driil and subsequently the tap for helicoil to pass through so I...

    I am changing my oil and noticed these ridges(?) at the top and bottom of the oil filter housing. Just not sure they are suppose to be there. I purchased the car about six months ago and did an oil service and did notice the ridges at that time but was, as usual, in too big a hurry to worry...

    Hi guys I wonder if anyone can give me some info on where the oil filter is on my 2010 520d M Sport E61 LCI ? I bought this beauty in June and want to do an oil & filter change, it's got the N47 engine. Before I start on the oil change I'd like to know if the filter is underneath near the sump...

    Does anyone know where I can get good quality filters for a 325CI-2004? I need the oil, cabin, air and gas filters and any other I may have left out for lack of knowledge.

    Recently I notice a high pitched noise on my 07 BMW 328i e90 N52. There was no noise at idle but when the revs went anywhere above idle 800RPM and above it would happen. After A quick Diagnostic I realized it was coming directly from the oil filter housing. My e90 N52 has been getting the...

    Recently, oil has been seeping out from under the oil filter cover. I went to a BMW-specialist and they suggested I put on a gasket first (I luv going to this shop, free advice and no attempts at trying to get me in for a larger project other than what is actually needed!) Anyway, I opened the...

    Hi all, Newbie here. I was changing my oil today and noticed an issue with the OEM oil filter that I got from BMW (part number 11 42 7 512 300). So the old filter that was put in was a Purolator (part number L25247). The OEM filter is probably 1/8 to 1/4 inch bigger in diameter and about 1/2...

    Hi folks, I just got the car in the subject title above. I believe the oil filter is in the cannister right behind the radiator fan at the front center of the engine. Can someone verify this for me? I went to open it, and a little oil seeped out, just a drop or two. I didn't leave it open long...

    2004 530i: Just had my oil and filter changed but not at a BMW dealer. They replaced the large O ring but didn't have the 2 small O rings that go on the housing. Do the small O rings need to be changed with each filter change?
  17. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello guys, I tried today to change oil and oil filter in my 1994 325is (e36). Everything went well, until the moment that I started the engine, and noticed that the oil filter was leaking from the cap. At that moment it had 18ft/lb nut. Then I upped it a little bit, at 24ft/lb, and saw that...
