2001 BMW 325 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 160K miles
after visiting the mechanic for an oil change, he told me that he wanted to take apart peices of the engine to clean out the attached milky substance before it turned to black tar and started to burn eventually. He said it is because I don't change my oil enough and even though I use synthetic oil and don't drive the car very much, this can happen. The jobestimate was for $880 so I wanted to see it if might be from another issue first. Like leaking coolent into the oil. I have attached some photos (the cap was also covered with this substance but he cleaned it after showing it to me a few weeks back.)
have the same problem?
