i have an e30 bmw 325i sport and an oil leak. i think it could be an oil sensor because it has a wire on it. it is located on the engine block on the underside next to the sump. Does anyone know?

That's pretty crazy. Mine is doing that as well. About 120000 miles on it. The part is $15 at the dealer and less than $10 at Advance Auto. Doesn't look like a big deal to change, but I'm not sure what torque spec to use.

Yeah, my wife gets pissed about it as well. It is a free country though, and as long as the moderators allow it, it goes. Kind of like we are free to waste time at work looking at BMW forums.

sense of humor? yes. but things like that belong in the members lounge.. porn doesnt belong in the e30 forum. e30 related topics belong in the e30 forum.

im all for porn/funny pics. collegehumor and ebaumsworld rock. just, i dont want my network banning this site by finding pics like that in my history cache.

Gross. Some of the nastiest boobs and raunchiest outfit I've ever seen in my life. Are you making fun of someone or bragging?

2. Get over what, the oil leak or the boobie pic?
