I did a search on the topic and apologize in advance if this has been asked. I recently purchased a '95 530i.
The car starts fine but there is a leak by the engine and I have an "Engine Oil Press" message thats displaying. I don't drive everyday but when I took it out on Sunday I noticed there was an accelaration issue where it was accelarating intermittently and the engine would stay idle. I parked the car, filled it with oil. The next morning I went to start it and it drove fine (around the corner).
Before I take it to be serviced (obviously) does anyone have an idea what could be the issue? The leaks are on the passenger side of the engine I notice the oil splatters to mostly.
