Advice needed on 95 BMW 325i
I just spent 600 on my 95 325i coolant system and now the car has more issues.
Oil leak getting worse. Oil filter housing - quote was $625 for part and labor. I pulled off the air filter stuff so I can see and the oil filter housing is leaking around a plug on the rear of the housing. Can orings or whatever be bought for this? If so, where? Or do I have to buy the whole thing as the mechanic said replace it at $325 for the part. Also, besides the gasket next to the block is there anything else I should replace when I remove the oil filter housing?
I check and fill the oil regularly but it has been leaking a long time, think it damaged anything else around there?
I either need a alternator or a pulley as it just started making a noise. Have not removed the belt yet to check them out.
Can the alternator be rebuilt at a good alternator rebuild shop or not?
I need struts, quote was $650 from good mechanic.
I can get some free help to tackle some of this stuff. Advice please?
