e92 335i water leaking head gasket

Asked by Feb 14, 2017 at 04:10 AM about the 2008 BMW 3 Series 335i Coupe RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

hello,
i have e92 335i 2008, recently i had a water leaking from the headgasket,a
week after replacing the headgasket, everything was fine until i opened the
oil filler to see theres water in it, now im thinking that the headgasket is not
installed properly or the head itself have crack or something, the garage
told me that the head was already checked and its in perfect condition and
the headgasket is new and cannot be misinstalled.
he is telling me that it could be the oil housing is leaking from inside , not
the  oil filter housing gasket or the headgasket.
can anyone explain what could it be ?
Thanks

Was the engine flushed really good after the repair? Sometimes it takes a while too get all the moisture out, especially if it was really bad. Are you loosing coolant?
