Default HELP NEEDED - M235 ENGINE ISSUES - 09-27-2018, 10:40 AM

Evening all,

I had a JB4, Intercooler, Chargepipe and ******** fitted a few weeks ago and had issues with it not working correctly and kept getting drivetrain malfunction issues. Anyway after much trial and error the JB4 was working great last night and I did some logs to see if all was good, at the end of the evening I opened up the bonnet and there was oil all over the Oil Filter Housing and surrounding areas and looks like there's oil on the gasket on the sump.

The engine did not sound healthy at all. https://youtu.be/TmeO3ZQdCR4

Please can anyone point me in the right direction with potential issues and what I can do, I phoned BMW and the car is 6 months out of warranty.

Many Thanks

Hi Ryan,

In my opinion the oil is just a seals issue on the oring from the oil filter housing or the oil filter housing gaskets. The "rattling" sound is just your injectors pouring fuel at 2000 psi. I would have the leak checked and you're ready to roll.
