Oil leak from oil cooler area?

Hi,

I have an 08 335i with 54k miles on it, the car seems to have a small oil leak in the intercooler area.

see my post below at

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=578295

Can someone advise what is the best course to proceed? I do have extended warranty (platinum coverage) from BMW for 7 yrs / 100k miles.

Thanks,

Ram

Do a search for an oil filter housing gasket leak. You need to buy the gasket and change it out.

I think he is referring to the oil cooler or the lines running to it, would need a picture of where it is leaking from

Thats correct, the leak is actually on both the pipes leading to and out of the intercooler I misstated it earlier thinking it was the oil cooler. Dropped it off at the dealer today, they think it might be a power steering leak dripping over to the intercooler piping- though not sure why the leak would show up on both sides of the intercooler where the hoses mate.
