52 plate BMW 320i petrol - engine light on and funny, oily smell...


Registered User
Hello there

not long bought an oldish 52 plate bmw 320i petrol estate for 2k.

nice car, nice nick...but the engine management light has recently come on, it's stalled a few times in traffic jams, and there's a funny oily smell after driving sometimes (not sure if related).

any thoughts. car out of warranty, so garage doesn't want to know.

any chance they could have known and don't something to temporarily fix this just for the 3 months warranty, do you think?

still using it without probs, but concerned it could escalate.

any thoughts/ideas/experience?

many thanks as always
