In Reply to: 95 540i OIL LEAK! HELP posted by Neepu K on June 29, 1999 at 12:27:36:
I had a similar problem with my 92 353 at 79Kmiles. Turned out to be the head gasket. The yellow could be water mixed with oil.
I am not sure if your gasket is bad, but get the car checked out right away.
: 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!
