But now that I think about it, Darlene, right side of engine from inside the car or looking at it with the hood open? If it's from inside the car, then your VCG or Valve cover gasket needs replacing.... Here is a DIY for that....http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=886063

you know a google search of this term did not show what it was...it was only through clickin' Tom's link we found out now~

I retract my goofy statement about this "bein' a snap" because this level of complexity causes a couple of steps backwards to consider "just have someone else do it~"~

a can of "foamy engine brite" and a steam cleaner can reveal the leaks...be sure to be packin' a can of wd-40 or the high-voltage componenets will not take to the overspray from your pressure blast...cover the distributor (coil packs) and high tension wires...they will dry out in time tho~
