Have a 2006 bmw x3 oil leaking
Brought to delta sonic 4 times after the oil was changed. Have a leak in my driveway.
Now at Turner auto in Webster. Delta sonic in Greece did the 1st oil change then the oil
seemed to be spilled out. The light came on. Took it back to them they topped it off.
Leaked out aon driveway. Took it to delta sonic in Webster 2 times they checked all
filters and said for us to contact their corporate office. Their corporate will not help with
this problem. They ran a dye test today and we are awaiting. A response from Turner
auto shop. Any ideas for us?
A dye test...? Are you talking about A/C oil ..motor oil..or what?
If they said contact the corporate office, that means they messed up and know it, likely cross-threaded the drain plug when re-installing and are putting it on you to get it fixed. that's a big pile of (bad word). or same for filter, cross-threaded that. An oil drain plug is an easy fix, very easy, every oil-change joint carries oversize self-tapping plugs, and often use them and not even tell the customer. The filter is another story.
A dye-test is something used to find R134a gas leaks in air conditioning systems.
Only answer i have to say,is ,if it wasn,t leaking before oil change,then some one cracked the oil filter housing by over tigheten the filter.
And to add,there not running die,test,no such thing in oil,but that said,may be there fixing there bubu,,,hope it work,s out
