Just noticed on the garage floor a couple of drops every week in the centre of car around gearshift area.

Suspect valve cover gaskets leaking down engine and off trani housing.

Anyone had valve cover gaskets on the e39 540 changed and what can I be looking at for cost..

Thanks,

Fern

I did mine myself, the drivers side was a bitch, it took me about a hour of very slow working

don't forget - Quack is a professional.
an ocasional home mechanic will spend 2 times as long on a simple thing and 3-4 times longer on a tough one. The right tools and experience are the key
