    2004 Imola ZHP - 270K Miles

    Have been troubleshooting numerous codes. Replaced fuel filter (found intake to fuel pressure regulator broken) , spark plugs (found oil on threads, wells dry), and CCV system rebuild to include:
    - Oil dip stick tube to pan o-ring QTY 1
    - Oil dip stick o-rings QTY 2
    - Intake air distribution manifold o-rings QTY 6
    - CCV Oil seperator
    - CCV Drain hose from separator
    - CCV drain hose from vanos
    - CCV drain hose from air distribution manifold QTY 2

    Long story short.... Upon fire up, car was running very much the same. Cleared codes, took car for a drive. Good power, car running a bit rough (misfire), and as I pulled into driveway, I noticed a whidp of smoke from engine bay.

    Popped hood, and this is what I found....

    Oil on this mount....




    This plug installed, right below spark plug #2 on head....


    This plug missing. Located right under spark plug #4, on side of head. What is this plug, what is the nomenclature, and what realoem drawing is it on?





    Thanks for any help.

    Bummer about the leak. I think the leak is coming from a missing blind plug in the head. There are a series of them along the exhaust side of the head. That screw plug (#14 from REALOEM diagram) is between cylinder 3 and 4, and there is a blind plug over each cylinder.




    The screw plug, part #14, is on the right, and the blind plug over cylinder 4 is on the left.



    I think what's missing is something like this engine block blind plug (link):



    Maybe a local engine machine shop can help with its replacement.

    Edit: In case you need it, I measured the diameter of the blind plug:10.0 mm.

    Not even a dealer? If the BMW Parts Distribution Centers (there's 6 in the US, I believe) have it in stock then it should be 2-3 days max for them to get it. But if they don't, then it'll have to come from supplier / Europe.
