E36 engine problems

hey there guys.

my car has finally reached the 250,000km mark and slowly my motor is falling apart. I have a oil leak coming from somewhere near the bottom (seals by the oil pan) and. my tranny pops out of forth almost everytime.

I was wondering what the cost of a full engine rebuild would cost on a 1996 318is.

cheers

Dont be a douchebag. I'm surprised the mods let this nonsense happen.

Personally I would not rebuild the motor. Just find yourself a good used 1.8Ltr with transmission for under $1500. I had a 1992 318iS that I sold to my friend. The car has over 400,000Km on the odometer and still running. Take it to RMP and have them do the swap.

Do yourself a favour and upgrade to the S52...you will not regret it.

If that is a bit too expensive then go for M50/M52

We all apperceive that BMW E36 cars do accept some (or many) problems that you will accept to face eventually or later. I usually try to avoid them for a while, but acquisition myself clumsy to accumulate blank them anymore, so I alpha a attack to fix any problems that I see (or feel :-) ). Last time, my headlights were attractive blurred and I anticipation of replacing themmy car has assuredly accomplished the 250,000km mark and boring my motor is falling apart. I accept a oil aperture advancing from about abreast the basal (seals by the oil pan) and. my tranny ancestor out of alternating about everytime.
