Oil Dye Test

It can very difficult to tell the source of an oil leak, so we use this 2 stage procedure to alleviate the guesswork.

Stage 1
Add fluorescent dye to your motor oil.

We usually want to see you drive your BMW for 100-150 miles to allow the dye to circulate and begin leaking out.

Stage 2
Bringing the car back so that one of our technicians can inspect the car under a UV light. The fluorescent dye appears green under the UV light, which makes it very easy to pinpoint the source of the leak.

The Oil Dye Test can also be performed to find
coolant, fuel and power steering fluid leaks.
