Customer Question

I have a(###) ###-####BMW and yesterday the oil light came on then the low pressure oil light then the Engine warning all with in seconds, white smoke from the exhaust for a short time but that cleared, so my concern could it a head gasket? or just an oil leak? I topped up with 1 ltr oil and then all lights went off for a few miles then they everything came back on again. At present the car is parked in a small pool of oil

Hi..there..

What the last digits of the VIN number?

Have you spotted any leakage around the engine? or any very recent.previous oil changes done?

Any change in coolant level?
