Hey guys,

I need some help from the community. I have a 2000 323i and i have a bad leak under the car. I left the car sitting for a week and upon returning i found a 2 foot circle underneath the car. The fluid seems to be yellowish brown and smells a bit burnt. I checked all the fluids and they are all fine. I have not checked the 5sp transmission fluid because i do not have the resources to do so. I changed the tranny fluid about 2 yrs ago and filled it with royal purple.

So heres the problem. Im from NJ and i go to school at Bryant University in Smithfield RI. I dont know any good and cheap shops around here that could put my car on a lift.

Any recommendations to what could be leaking would be very helpful. Also reccomendations towards any shops in the area would be appreciated.

thanks, Jay

Power Steering fluid?
Is it oil or thinner?

There is a shop in Smithfield here the guy works on BMWs. I would not go there for anything too complicated, but he has a lift and he will at the very least diagnose your leak.
PM and I will send you the info.
