2000 BMW Z3 Q&A
2000 BMW Z3 Question: oil change
I use synthetic oil. Should I rely on the oil change light on my dash or change at 6500 miles? - Visitor
No the lights are really inaccurate. If the battery is disconnected they are reset so now you do not know when to change the oil. Always keep track of the mileage yourself - Visitor
Valve cover gasket leaks are common after 60,000 miles. Symptoms will include oil drips under the vehicle and burning oil smell from the engine compartment.
