I have a E32 740i (93) and I have noticed that there is oil under the front of my car on the ground. I have looked and it is coming from the front of the engine, but there is not much room in there to see where it is coming from..
Is there a fix for this? Engine Pull?
Oil leaks on the v8 can be a real pain to diagnose. some common things are valve cover gaskets, upper timing cover gaskets, front crank seal, lower oil pan gasket. Because things are so packed in there.. especially on the drivers side, it makes it a real bear to see where leaks are coming from. Id recommend taking it to a pro to diagnose. Then decide if you can do some of it yourself.
