BMWs are superb, superior machines but we do see a lot of them coming into the shop with all kinds of issues from leaks to overheating.
Recently a customer brought a BMW into our workshop with a suspected oil leak. However with some careful investigation we discovered the rocker cover gasket was actually leaking. We stripped it down and whilst we were in there replaced all the vacuum hoses for the turbos.
Unfortunately this is not an uncommon issue with BMWs. If your BMW appears to have an oil leak remember it is likely to be one of a few things including a compromised drain plug, infrequent oil changes or like this one issues with the valve gasket cover. Keep an eye out for a puddle of oil underneath your car. Any issues you come across bring your car over to Bayleys vehicle locksmiths in Hove and we will get it sorted.
