i pulled out my air box today to work on the alternator and noticed that the inside walls of the intake piping were oil coated. I am talking about between the air flow meter and up into the throttle body. What could be causing this.
ok i wiped it with a rag so will see if it comes back. I replace the osv, where is it located and the engine has done 129 thousand k's so not too high mileage
i searched the internet and found this link E30 oil all inside intake
which gives a few ideas ..about oil drains being restricted i guess it means the oil drains under the valve cover?
I had my 85 325 E given to me with 60,xxx miles on it... didnt have a problem with it for the first year and then all of sudden stuff is die off on me...recently replaced my clutch...that was fun...NOT
