my problem.... i own a 2006 330i and i was replacing the oil on the car which is simple but became very difficult. I noticed it came with a rubber ring and a copper ring for the oil filter. I replaced all the parts on the oil filter but the problem im having is i didnt find the copper ring anywhere so i figured it would go inside on the oil cap shaft. My problem now is that the car swallowed the coppper ring. HELP!! how do i get it out? its killing my car. i cant drive it down the road without it jumping in the rpms, skipping gears, jumping to redline, losing pressure power. i have offically messed up my car and i believe its the coppper ring loose somewhere in my oil line. any suggestions??
Oh my god, this has to be a joke. Do not ever change a cars oil again and take it to a bmw shop now!
