In Reply to: 535 oil leak posted by brent on August 04, 2001 at 12:01:11:

the oil pressure switch, its right at the rear on the intake manifold side of the head just below the valve cover.

My 92 535i has had a slow leak that appears to be from the back of the head area for some time. I have replaced the valve cover gasket (and the cover WAS loose at the back... though I had it) and retorqued to spec. Unfortunately, that didn't do it. The oil is seeping onto the back of the intake manifold and then runs down the block and drips off the torque converter. Any ideas?
