Depends on the motor, is it the m20 motor? if so probably one of the manifold gaskets

Hi Mark, thanks for responding. It's a 2001 E34 2.2 litre. Would that be an M20? I've read in a few forums about the oil filter gasket? What do you think?

its a common problem in the BMW's around that year with the gaskets, do a leak test, should be able to fine it easily
