E34 possible problem
I´m new on this forum,so I would like to congratulate all for this excellent bmw enthusiasts resource.
If possible,I have a few questions regarding my bmw 520i E34 from 1992.
I drive an bmw 530D E39,and I had a 525TDS that I sell not long time ago,so I´m used with diesel cars,now I bought this 520i a week ago as a second car,mostly for my wife.
the car is from 1992 but with only 93.000 miles run,looks like new,the engine runs like a clock the body and the interior looks perfect and other things like the dash lights air conditioned and everything works well.
but in fact I notice two strange things:
today I was verifying the engine oil level,and I noticed that the oil smells like gasoline,it smells a lot,I just want to know if this normal on petrol engines,or I have a problem?
other thing is:
sometimes,on the high-way,at high speeds,I notice a smell,like something burning,it smells like coal or something.
the car as been parked for almost a year inside a garage.just to know,since 1999 till now,the car had run only 6.000 miles,mostly at low or very low speeds(on urban areas),and for short periods each time.
sorry my english,I´m from portugal and a bmw fan
