Hi folks, I own a 1992 525i (E34) Touring for 27 years. Recently it has been leaking a lot of oil from the rear self-leveling suspension. Can anyone recommend a good, honest, good priced place to get it fixed cause I am on a tight budget and can't go to a dealer! I also have a rear trunk door lock that no longer works would love to get that fixed too. I am based on the North Shore in Auckland. Thanks heaps and look forward to your advice and replies
Hi all, My e36 316i with m43b16 engine, started to pouring oil from right above the steering rack(about 500cc in 10mins, worst oil leak I have ever seen), I suspect the oil filter housing gasket has cracked, where can buy the gasket from, I remember seeing them from supercheap auto, but couldn't find it anymore. Also, I have a viscous clutch fan, any idea how I can get it off without the special holding tool? Many thanks
Hello all. New member with a love of the old e30's. I have an '89 320i. Have done easy mechanical bits (changed belts etc), but it's dropping oil & my possibilities to fix it are limited in both experience & ability. Any of you guys know of a mechanic i can go to in Christchurch who will make all my mechanical issues vanish? Was thinking to have an engine / transmission overhaul. Any leads appreciated. Cheers James
EDIT: mechanic suspects rear main seal leaking Recently bought a an e46 318 (2002) and it's been leaking oil. Looking underneath on the passenger side, I've found whatever this area is totally covered in residue. Anyone have any idea what I'm looking at? thanks, and sorry that my first post is a request for help! (photo on a bit of an angle, here's a rotated zoomed version) This one isn't my car, but it's the area you're looking at from a bit further back (plastic splash guard removed in my pics)
