Yesterday I parked my 2001 740il BWM in my drive way. About 30 minutes later, I went out to pull my car into the garage. That’s when I saw the oil spot on my drive way and oil spots going into my garage. The oil is leaking from somewhere in the engine department. It looks like it’s coming from the middle of the engine department closer to the driver side pass the front tire. Can someone help me with a diagnosis and how to fix it!
