hi im thinking about buyinh a car but there is one thing that looks kinda fishy. on top of the vavle cover there is some kind of oil or grease i cant see where it came from. i looked for leaks i didnt see any thing. could it be seriouse or just some fool spilled it on the engine?
PS: if you any test that i should do please tell me i am going to look at it again towmorrow, its a 1989 325i
compresion test, also do a vacume test see if shes leaking anywhere. and the oil on top is most likley from spilling when pouring which shows a careless owner. be warned!!!! and every other standard test, best to get a mechanical inspection by a shop or somthing.
