i just got the car and noticed it was slowly seeping oil from the filter just around the top where you unscrew the cover to get to the filter. then i had checked my oil, i was in need for oil so i put two quarts in it. i also changed the oil filter cuz it waqs old and ugly. now its leaking out more than it was.

The engine was cleaned by using a lot of water. It didn't run well after the wash. The dashlights and all exterior lights stayed on. The battery went dead. Jump started the vehicle. The battery won't keep a charge.

I just got a 00 740il, the car has been sitting for a long time. The engine is powerful and the tranny is good. A few issues though,

1. When I accelerate after 10 to 15 mins of driving before hitting second gear sometimes the whole front of the car starts to vibrate. It does not kick so I know it's not the tranny. On the the freeway before I accelerate it starts to shake again then go away.

2. Power steering is leaking, very stiff steering wheel.

3. I hear screeching when I drive. From the back
