I've got a oil leak under the cover that goes over the plug leads on top of the cylander head. There's a sensor there which I think is the Cam Shaft Sensor. It looked like it had oil on it so I pulled it out and the connectors had oil on them. Will this cause lack of power on low RPM ?
Let me know. Spent money trying to fix problem but find this now. Also I have a leak on the tappet cover could this also cause lack of power?
I cleaned the connector which might of made of difference but I will need to drive it for a few days but I think it might just leak again on the sensor.
Wow, where can I get access or download data/repair catalogs like this? I have a 318i too and from my experience of Heynes (sic) manuals - they are not good. Yuor help/guidance will be much appreciated.
