I have a slight oil leak it seems ahead of the trans mission but at the rear end of engine. Could this be an over flow as I changed the oil but may have put too much in? I dont think so though as I filled it to the mark on the stick. Is there anyone out there who may have had experience of the same so I can extrapolate the various scenarios. The low oil indicator has not come on. Occassionally I can smell oil burning when at the lights for example.There is a slight oil bead around top of engine around gasket head and plugs area.Where could this leak possibly come from?
hi Kippy, I have a similar problem with an oil drip from what appears to be the seal between engine and gearbox. What was the solution to your leak?
Also does anyone have a gut feel for when the auto gearbox should be overhauled? Mine has done 225,000km and is a 95 E34 525i. Besides the oil drip all is running smooth
