That is no help. I had already washed the engine and that is how we found the leaks! In Australia there are laws that require sellers of goods to provide them to be of merchantable quality! To have such oil leaks from an engine that has only done 40,000 to 65,000 kilometres from such a quality manafacturer is I would have thought, indicative of an inherent problem in the engine oiling system!
Can you answer this - does the 320i engine used in 2006 and E90 BMW's have a history of oil leaks due faulty vacuum pumps or oil filtering system? Yes or No.
It seems to me that they do by looking around the internet! I want to take BMW to task. They should not be allowed to just walk away from a problem of their making! I certainly did not cause the engine to leak. The Toyota that I use to tow my boat has 200,000km and has leaked not a drop of oil at any stage. Does not say much for BMW! And their rubbish engine.
