E39 oil leak.
My 01 530i has a hard to locate oil leak. I looked at it today. I removed the skid gaurd, and the upper engine covers. The valve cover gasket appears not to be leaking, and the leak appears to be higher than the oil pan. It looks like it is coming from the side of the engine with the intake manifold on it, however the manifold blocks a good view of the engine. Any suggestions on common leaks in that area. I know its not real specific, and there are some oil lines that run in that area, but i am pretty new to BMWs and the issues that are common with them. I have Mechanic training, however most of my Mechanic training was on Toyota vehicles. For the record the Supra is easier to work on than the 530i.
The 01 530i is sweet, but the 87 supra is quicker.
