Subject: Re: Oil leak

Hi, I have the same kind of problem at my 9000i (1993), several drops of oil a day from the left side of the engine. While driving, the wind disperses the oil underneath the car. I went to my mechanic and he told me, that the oil runs from the gasket between gearbox and motor. The gasket is cheap, but it will take the mechanic about 2 hours to change the gasket and to remount the gearbox. So I decided to fill up the gearbox oil and will have the gasket changed next month. If your are not shure, clean the motor (especially from underneath) wait one night and then follow the way of the oil ;-) Greetings Axel
