Oil filter housing and cap
My e46 has recently developed an oil leak. I got it checked out by a BMW mech in town and they're blaming it on the cap and the housing. They suggest replace both of them.
Since then I've kept a close eye on the cap and it's leaking a little but no where near the amount that's on the floor of my garage.
How likely is the housing to go bad? Do you guys think its more likely the housing gasket?
There's oil all down the front side of the engine, covering all the belts.
I don't really feel like paying the mech the $700 he quoted me to replace the housing.
She's an '01 330i auto.
