Mechanics

E60 525D YEAR

2004 BMW 118d • 6 cylinder 2WD Manual • 350,000 miles

There is a very strong burning smell from engine on the right hand side and smoke comes from under the bonnet.

It is not a diesel smell.
No exhaust pipe broken.
Already changed the breather filter for oil.

The interior of the vehicle smells the same.

Can yopu suggest the possible cause

There's only two things that it can be, oil or coolant, you will probably have to take the vehicle to a car wash pressure wash the engine to determine where the leak is, tell me what kind of fluids you are adding to the vehicle? ( By the way that diesel BMW is awesome! I have two 528d) I do not have the manual for that specific vehicle ( that's because in mi country where I come from U.S.A. They are too stupid to own a Diesel car) but I am the Diesel expert and I should be able to assist you.
