    I have had a vcg leak for almost 2 months and check the oil daily. It has never dropped below max, never gotten an oil light. But burns oil off exhaust every time I start it. Do you think this is normal. How accurate is the reading? I drive my e93 approx 150 miles per week.

    Hi All, So I recently got an E70 30d which I knew would need some work, first off there was an oil leak. I removed the bottom trays and oil appeared to be around sump but of course you want to find the highest spot so it appeared to go around the bell housing and I think the final highest spot...

    Dealer did the 50k service the other day and car came back with oil burning smell that I'd never noticed before. Figured that they had spilled some oil when refilling, but if anything it's been getting worse. Leak seems to be in the vicinity of rearmost plug. I assume that if dealer was careless...

    Hi all. I've recently been consuming a lot of oil in my 2012 e92 n55. I've had the low oil light come on twice now, about once a month or ~1k miles apart prompting me to add 1 qt of oil. I also have a very slight rough idle/vibration in the car that comes and goes when the engine is all warmed...

    I have an oil leak on the lower coolant hose. I don’t think it would be the VCG because I replaced it a couple of months ago. I believe the oil leak is causing a misfire in cylinder 3 with fuel cutoff as well. Any help would be appreciated, I’ll attach a couple of pictures when I get a chance.

    That repair is common failure on these engines N62, it is well known issue that after aproximately 150000 miles the Alternator bracket gasket starting to leak, it could leak years but soon or later it will get big and it will start to leak really bad. The car I bought recently from USA had that...

    Hello! I was trying out a 2004 e60 530i today and when I got it inspected it came to light that it was maybe leaking oil. It was located beneath the car, on the passenger side of the car but almost in the middle. I was told that it could be old, from when the oil was changed last or it could be...

    Hello all, I was recently given a 528i (they told me there were a few issues). I believe it has a valve cover gasket leak. Is the car safe to drive about 15 minutes to the mechanic? it produces a light smoke coming through the vents after about a minute of the engine running. Also all the...

    I have a 2008 e90 325i that just doesn’t want to stop leaking oil from the valvetronic motor gasket. I’ve replaced it twice with the OEM gasket from bmw and on the second attempt I used some silicone gasket to help it seal but it just didn’t seem to do the job.it has the plastic tappet cover/...

    Hi all, I know there are lot of threads on this topic but most of them have an happy ending. Not in my case though. Recently noticed oil burning smell and smoke from under the hood and sometime based on the AC air intake inside the car as well. I've looked at the engine and did see some oil...
