I have a BMW 325i production date 5/2004, that has a pretty massive oil leak that I am trying to pin down. I don't think its coming from the valve cover gasket, it looks like that was done not long ago, the rubber looks fresh and resilient, and no signs of leaking in that area. I suspect the area of origin to be behind the oil filter housing area, although I see two pressure switches on the housing that look dry. I have attached a picture of where I think the leak is coming from, if you look against the engine block you can see the oil has pooled up in that area. Please let me know what in that area is prone to leaking oil, and just incase I am totally wrong, please let me know what other areas are commonly known to leak motor oil on that engine. Thank You!

Steve--I have had my 2010 BMW X5 in the BMW dealership in south Scottsdale, AZ for the better part of the last 2 months. They say their diagnostic equipment says nothing is wrong--but we get all the yellow lights pretty much on the Dashboard pop on and stay on.The BMW dealership has been subbing the work to Super Discount Transmission to replace the transmission box and differential--after doing this twice over the last 2 months--the problem continues.We are going crazy on this issue--any thoughts?

While changing a fuse under the hood I checked to see if the ABS module was secure, and it was, then the ABS light came on after that. All brake functions are normal, so how do I turn off the ABS light, that only came on after I must have adjusted the box under the hood. I have a 1995 540iJA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?Customer: No...just the lightJA: What is the model/year of your BMW?Customer: 1995 e34 540iJA: Are you fixing your 540i yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Just changed the fuse when the AC blower quit.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: No
