Guide :what is essential to pass the inspection? : DMTL and oil filter housing and pan gasket need fixing
DMTL and oil filter housing and pan gasket need fixing - what is essential to pass the inspection?
Vehicle didn't pass inspection. 2004 BMW 325i. Recommendation is to replace the DMTL Pump ($700), Oil Filter Housing ($850) and Oil Pan Gasket ($1200). Are all of those really necessary to pass inspection (North Carolina)? Are those prices way out of line? If you could only afford one of those changes, which would you take a stab at to hopefully get it to pass inspection? Thanks for the help! Really hoping I don't have to find a way to pay for a $3K fix on a car that's only worth about that much...
