Find out where the oil is coming from and check the oil level. Check the radiator level. Could be anything from a punctured pan to a cracked block. Where do you live? How's the anti-freeze? Does it make any unusual noises? Next thing I would check is the fuel pump then the fuel filter. Make sure of what fluid is on the ground.
Don, check with your dealer first about the recall "MODEL YEAR 2002-2008 7-SERIES VEHICLES. A CHECK VALVE OF THE BRAKE VACUUM PUMP MAY LEAK A SMALL AMOUNT OF LUBRICATING OIL. OVER TIME THIS COULD RESULT IN CONTAMINATION OF THE BRAKE BOOSTER.
POWER ASSIST BRAKING PERFORMANCE COULD BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED. IN EXTREME CASES THERE COULD BE A COMPLETE LOSS OF POWER ASSIST BRAKING. AN UNEXPECTED REDUCTION OR LOSS IN POWER BRAKING ASSIST MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

The vacuum pump is before the brake booster. It will create the vacuum needed for your booster. Hope this helps, good luck.
