Replacing valve covers, leaking oil
So i bought a 2000 740i sport back in july...amazing car for how big it is, but i had a mechanic take a quick look at it and my valve covers are very slowly leaking oil. i guess its a known issue?
ive heard things about having to replace the entire valve cover or just the gasket. what shall i do? i found a full walkthrough on e38.org, but im still not sure if i should do gasket or the entire cover. doesnt seem like too much work. probably get it done in one 8 hour day.
i also have to do the belt for the motor...is that a tough one? or just a tensioner shoved down under the motor. ive done belts and valve gaskets before on a datsun, isuzu and a 72' 2002 bimmer, but not on an M62 V8 with no room whatsoever...
its gunna be the first big project for me. can't wait! :yum
can't wait for those garage hours. bahhh.
costco should sell time...in bulk. wtf.:doh
I'm new to this community and have a few questions. I'm hoping I'll find some answers from you. I have a 98 740il and I need to change the valve covers gaskets. I've never done this before and I'm wondering if it's an easy job or if any of you have any tips for me.
