BMW has created some of the finest engines in the auto world. Their straight-6, if taken care of properly, are bullet-proof, and are capable of providing years of reliable, fun service. A known area of repairs are oil leaks. We see these so frequently that we gave them a nickname: the Trifecta. Valve cover gasket, oil housing gasket, and oil pan gaskets are so frequently in need of repair that we have a package price for some models, notably the 3-Series E90 and the X5 E90. Burnt oil smell in the cabin? Seeing oil in your driveway? Your BMW may be in need of this very common repair. Learn more about what it means and how it’s performed.
