cn90 is on a distinguished road
Oil Leak Diagnosis please...

- 2004 X3 2.5i with 84K miles.
- Brand-new BMW OFH Gasket (did it last week).
- VCG new, a few months old done by P.O.: I looked around with mirror: upper engine near VCG is dry.
- Oil Level Sensor Gasket is new.
- Oil Pan Gasket seems dry around the edges.

- I suspect this is RMS leak but at 84K miles, it is a bit early.

- If this is RMS leak, I may try the "BavarianE39 CCV Mod", which increases the crankcase vacuum, and hopefully reducing the RMS leak...
