E92 335xi
I had already replaced the valve cover gasket and the Oil cooler gasket on my e92 335xi. Still leaking. Bigger leak when I park on an incline with the rear end facing towards the street. I just passed 60K miles. Getting the oil pan gasket done this week as I’m suspecting that is the culprit. Any tips? Help a guy out. I’m at 3500 miles since my oil change, oil level is already below maximum.

Who replaced it, you? If so, did you check to be sure that gasket was fully seated and was not dangling out upon installation? Did you use assembly grease to hold the gasket inside the grooves? I did mine 2 yrs ago and not dro of oil nor any burning at all. Dry as a bone. Oil housing too. I used BMW genuine gaskets.
