saleem83: Do the n62 face the same timing guide issues the m62 had? I'm considering an E60 with the v8 in the future but not sure if the engine reliability is better than the old m62 minus the guide issues.
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 ?
Rick WESTON: Thank you for such an informative video. Great Job! Does my 02 X5 4.6is E53engine have this? I am having a difficult time with finding a leak on the front right side somewhere near this area. Thanks
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
Apply Now: Excellent presentation. Explanation very short, sharp & straight to the point. Easy to understood theory & practical. Double thumbs up & a big thank you to you for your very useful info & tips. I liked your way of tutorial, slow & calm. You are Professor Genius Sir David Einstein of modern mechanical engineers. (:-)
IRVGREEN: Great advice. I have a 2003 745i with a Lean code p2179 & p2177 and it causes the check engine to come on. I passed emmisions but monitors will not clear. Ive changed pcv valves, 02 sensors, Fuel cap, spark plugs & coils, MAF & all filters.. $700 later and problem still not fixed. Any advice???
n7c7m7p8: just purchased a 2nd hand 2006 bmw x5 4.8is. the car came with a truck from the other side of the US. the car is leaking oil in small quantity. everything underneath the car is full of oil. is it normal this might occur due to transportation in that when they put the car up on the 2nd level on the truck, and when they got it down back - the car was angled enough to allow the oil to overflow?!
khrvette: Hey, even though you posted this awhile ago, I just wanted to thank you and much appreaciate the time you took to make the video & post it. It saved me hours probably going after the wrong leak and having a #*(&@*off customer. I love the BMW's but have to scratch my head about some of the engineering. THANK YOU!
