BMW e39 5 Series Power Steering Hose & Valve Cover Leaks

If your BMW e39 5 series has a faulty power steering hose and valve cover leaks, we can help! We specialize in affordable BMW repairs in Jacksonville, FL.

There’s nothing prettier than a freshly-washed Bimmer parked in the driveway, except when that Bimmer leaves a puddle of fluid in front of your house. The BMW e39 five-series is known to spring leaks in the power-steering hose, valve cover and other lines. This includes all of the model years from 1997-2003 in the 5-series. This includes the 525i, 528i, 530i, 540i and M5, also known as the Sedan, Sport and Touring models.

There were not any 4-cylinder e39s distributed in the U.S., but the V6 and V8s were quite popular. In fact, many are still on the road today. The eight-cylinders are known to bust a leak in the power steering hose. This results in low pressure and could damage several associated parts. If you feel like your Bimmer is handling poor, or if you notice there is a rubbing or grinding when you turn, this could be the cause. The solution includes a rather costly part, and should be replaced by a local Bimmer service expert, like Bavarian RennSport.

If you notice a large puddle of oil on the driveway, it could be caused by something as simple as a loose plug, or a faulty valve cover. The first thing you should do is check to make sure the oil plug is secure, as it may have come loose since your last oil change. If the plug is tight, then look for other symptoms, such as your Bimmer misfiring while driving. If the valve cover is leaking, it can drip oil onto the spark plug wells and cause misfires. This will do quite a bit of damage to the engine if not addressed immediately. Contact a specialized BMW repair expert, like Bavarian RennSport for professional repairs.
