leaking front oil seal. cost and time to replace? 1998 318i Auto
Car has done 300,000 km. Has badly leaking front oil seal. Engine is using oil
4litres/5000km. Lot of piston ring blow by and high crank case pressure.
Car body quite good. Suspension and brakes good.
What does a change over engine cost?
Is it worth doing rings and bearings?
If you find a used engine and have a mechanic install it, more than what the car is worth. But if you like it and it's still in good condition like you say, it might be worth it. Call a couple shop for estimates.
Thanks Tom. Based on what you say I think I will tidy it up and sell it. Cheers James
