95 540i OIL LEAK! HELP (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ 5-series (E34) Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Neepu K on June 29, 1999 at 12:29:58:

I have an oil leak coming from the passenger side. I've
steam cleaned the engine and oil appears on the pump or compressor thing directly below the right cylinder head. I'm suspecting a valve cover gasket or a bad line on that pump thing.

The car has 75K miles. There is evidence of oil leaking on the ground after the car has been parked for an hour or so. The oil is yellowish/greyish not redish in color if that makes any difference.

Any assistance on this is appreciated!
