2001 BMW 330i Question: oil leak around the top of engine
Answer #1overbys from Overbys Inc, February 22, 2011, 13:49Master
you have a leaking valve cover gasket, which is on top.
you probably also have a leaking oil filter housing gasket, which is closer to the bottom. these are very common leaks and happen to ALL six cylinder BMW's.

I second overby's on those gaskets. They are common. Get your PCV system checked also.
