2005 BMW 325i Question: Oil leak

 

Question

I have a small oil leak. Took it in to get an oil change and they told me I had an oil leak. They said they put some dye in it and to bring it back in 100 miles. I am scared to go back. It is still dripping.

    The dye is fluorescent under ultraviolet light and can be used to pinpoint the leak. If you don't want to go back to the oil change place, find a Beemer specialist. He'lll have a UV light and can check but don't wait too long or there won't be good evidence, the dye will have spread out too much.
