Did this video help you?

Ausra York: Hi, I had some oil leaking from under my 2006 bmw 750li. It also started throwing a bunch of error codes, mainly failing the battery and all that comes with that. I had a battery replaced, then and alternator...it worked for about a month and now it is back at the dealership. They told me my battery was bad (not charging), so they replaced that, then they told me I need a new alternator, because they found out that there was aoi that leaked into the alternator and damaged it??? They also told me they have to replace all the gaskets (Alternator bracket gasket, lower oil pan gasket, upper timing case gasket, both valve cover gaskets and degrease complete engine compartment $4995.00). Is it possible that the leak was an alternator seal only and could cause an alternator to go bad? Thank you for any insight you may give me. I am just really frustrated after already putting over $2000 into in in just last month.

alderone1: Did you use a engine hoist or floor jack to raise the engine and how long did the job take

Tim Smith: BMW should be sued for NOT recalling these cars with all the problems they have!

nick elias: did you have to support the engine to get the bracket out?

B: where is your shop? ?

Jose Guillen: great videos! I'm just getting into fixing bmws and I'm glad these videos are available because I'm thinking of opening a shop here in calexico, ca. thank you!

Krflk92: I'm planing on doing this repair in my drive way

Krflk92: Does this require dropping the k frame ? And do u have the part number for this oring thanks

Rigo Rangel: This hAppends to all bmw v8 engines from 02-07 I been told I just fix this on my 750 I sucks if u wait and fix it threw time one day your car will leak all the oil and u will be stuck it happend to me one morning on my way to work I'll spills all my oil so I had to get it fix and also my water pump as well that's why u leak coolant as we'll I ended spending 1.467 they have to remove your power steering pump and alternator plus new oil and coolant big job and lots if money

Brian Hernandez: Looking for someone to quote me on this repair in the Santa Barbara area.  I'm about 1 hour north of LA.
 

Joshua Nol: I really dont know, But I believe that my car has the same problem as shown on the video. My CAR ALSO LEAKS the green cooler. It leaked so fast that one day it was low and the other day it was empty. It seemed that it didn't leak from the top where the cooler tank is. It leaked from some place else. I need help. I dont have money to go get it fixed. Thats why im trying to do it myself. 

Joshua Nol: all i have to replace is the rubber gasket? and my cooler is also leaking. idk what that could be. my cooler level was at high thenm 2 days later, no more cooler.

Iron: Hello,a couple of questions, first what is code p491 on the E60 BMW engines, and the hella lights, are they know to be faulty.The daytime running light doesn't work on the drivers side but the passenger sides does.I've changed the bulb with no positive results. My vehicle is a 2004 Bmw 545i


obtainableusername: Coming out of the block on that 2002 745i, there's a top, round hole and a bottom, oval-shaped hole.  Which one does the pressurized oil come out of, & which one carries the return of the non-pressurized oil to the oil pan ?  Here's my thought:  IF the pressurized oil is coming from the top, circular hole, then it could be tapped & a sealing bolt installed there for a permanent, superior seal.  Would never need to be replaced -- ever.  The other, oval-shaped hole would be fine with the standard $8.08 gasket (including shipping on eBay) for the oil that might slosh from the pan up against it on a hard right turn.  No welding, just some aluminum shavings to clean up before reassembly.  Bam.  Done.  Thoughts ?

obtainableusername: Background: I have recently acquired a beautiful, black 2002 745i & my wife & I love it. NADA valued @ almost $11K when we bought it. Bought it for $8K, so we have some fix-it financial wiggle room. It's leaking oil at a ridiculous rate, so it must be fixed wherever the leak is coming from.

What about sealing this area permanently - as in, welding a permanent metal seal right there. Is this outright lunacy, or what ? I mean, if this is where my fast oil leak is coming from, & I have to swap this particular $5-gasket-costs-me-10+-hrs.-of-my-life, then I NEVER want to change it again - ever. Any thoughts ?

Jose Gomez: I just want to thank u for taking the time to post this video I wish I would of watch it before replacing the valve cover gaskets on my 745 but after watching this it solved my problem thanks man
