Q: Hi Carlos,

asked by on

So my Question for you is my 328 xi (07) is leaking oil from the oil filter housing unit. Will that be the reason the car is making a funny sound? Oil filter Case?

My car has 109531 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your engine can make sounds due to the low oil level. I would recommend having the oil filter housing gasket replaced by a qualified professional. Doing this will keep all the oil inside your engine that it needs. This will also help keep your garage/driveway clean and prolong the life of your vehicle. Consider YourMechanic for this service as house calls are provideds.
