Thanks! Ill try to see if that is what is leaking this weekend.Filler hose:
I'm no sure which vent hose is bad (there's more than one) so no number for that yet.
Dude is writing a book haha.You guys want some light reading? :rofl:
Dude cannot accept that he's wrong. If it doesn't hold up and I have to update that thread saying so, it's going to make his whole month.
Thats a great idea....Ill try that once all this weather is gone. I guess it could be the drain plug and when driving its blowing the oil everywhere (on the pan etc.) I just ordered 3 new magnetic drain plugs from ecs along with oil filters for the e30/36/53...I think the x5 has a oil leak tooYou checked the drain plug right?
I was hesitant to answer because I didn't know if the oil level would be above the pan while it's off or if the majority of it sits below that line. You could put a piece of cardboard under it after it has cooled down some to get a gauge for how much it's dripping when cold.
This one says "updated plugs"Not bad, only took me a couple hours, just make sure you get those o-rings for those freeze plugs. There is no P/N for them but the dealer can usually dig them up, I think they are in the 318i diagram.
Checked the M3's coolant level again when I went out to shovel snow, after sitting for 24+ hours and getting all the way cold the level was about 1/4in below the cold mark. I dunno if that's to be expected when the car goes from maybe 80* to 35*. Probably not. So I may not have fixed it but it does seem like I slowed it down quite a bit, I'm going to try to avoid brooding until I can take it out and get some real mileage on it.
