SOURCE: Oil leak

Hello Pierre,
A little more detail may help me on this one, however this sounds like possibly your power steering pipe? both these use auto trans fluid it is reddy brown in colour and viscosity (Thickness) watery.
If this is the pipe, check the fluid reservoir it should have either a Yellow top with power steering or a steering wheel diagram on it.
If full then please give me more information as to location on engine where pipe comes from and goes too as nowadays engine oil is usually internally dispersed. Only oil cooler pipes possibly? will go to a finned type radiator usually near the front grille of the vehicle.
I hope this points you in the right direction as I'm thinking of giving this help up as very hard to remain on top slot when loads of questions responded to and no replies.
Good Luck,
Paul 'W'

There is a open ended pipe that runs above engine oil intake, the other end has a hose connected to it? mines leaking fluid thinking gas


Catch what is dripping and see if it smalls of gas, oil or water. Whatever it is I doubt it should not be open ended and should have a hose attached to it that goes somewhere.

Sounds a bit like an Oil Breather Pipe at that diameter.

Take a look at these.

make sure that the filler cap seal is in place and not gone hard over time also has the rocker cover been off at some stage if it has check that the gasket has not moved the other thing to look out for is that the PCV (breather )valve is in good working order if it is damaged the sump compression will rise and push oil out

BMW 318i E46 oil leaking once the car is started. But does not leak when car is switched off at all.


1) your engine has worn or damaged valve stem oil seals.
2) valve steam excessively worn
3)plugged drain back holes
4)engine oil being blown ut past the intake manifold gasket
5)punctured automatic transmission modulator diaphragm
6)oil viscosity is too low.
God bless you

I don't know what oil to use for my BMW 318i


BMW recommends 15W-40. However your driving style can vary what you should use.. Colder climates thinner is better, city driving slightly thicker can be helpful.

I use 20W-50 year round here in PA in my ti without any issues.

1992 auto 318i bmw judders at low revs


Hello there

If you drive an automatic and it starts to judder at low speeds than that means you transmission isn't down shifting as the speed is reduced. In the first instance you should get your transmission oil changed.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.
