Default Oil cap / crank case breather for 435i? - 12-04-2019, 11:59 AM

Do they make one? I find some but they are for n54s and say they fit some N55's but the ones listed are the 335i stating clearance issues.


Anyone know of one that will work for a 435i?

IMO, an OCC would be more beneficial for you.

Thanks P.

i've been looking at those too. However the reason i ask is i always get low oil light right before my next oil change. The tech took pictures of very minor oil leaks around the oil pan seal.

I was trying to use a crank case valve to aliviate pressure seeing as i'm hoping its because i'm running 21 PSI all day and night and thinking its just too much for the seal.

I don't really wanna pay them 1k to fix it nor do the work myself if i don't have to. Not sure if it will help but i would like to try.

Just the factory reco stuff on stock turbos. Were you also losing oil around the oil pan seal? I mean this is the 3rd time it has happened in the last 2 years i get the low oil warning light.

Hmm, are you sure it's from the oil pan? That's not too common on a newer car from what I know of, but I could be wrong. Usually more from the oil/valve cover gaskets.

Ya i know i haven't heard of it too much on the F32/33 but the tech took pictures and brought them into me. you could def see dried oil around some areas where the oil pan meets the engine and there was even a drip bead near where one of the metal coverings under the car was catching the oil. I jus tthought i was burning up oil cause of having such an aggressive tune for all these months but maybe not.

I never smell burned oil, see any in the engine bay or on the ground in my garage and its not severe a very minor leak idk if the crank case breather would help but like i said i rather spend 100 and try it then put in the wrench time if i have to.
