Fix or is it time to sell?

I have a 99 323i automatic, with 184k. Lately it seems like one thing after another has been popping up. I don't know if I should fox it or all it and get something newer and better. Here are my issues:

Oil drip, rough idle (especially when warming up and check engine light came on before this started occurring and stays on now), grinding/rubbing noise from front passenger side that's noticed on take off and when accelerating at high speeds too (mainly between 2-3k rpm). This rubbing I can feel the vibration through the gas pedal plus it is LOUD. I have ideas on what all these issues could be, but I want to get others opinions fist to see if I'm anywhere even close.

Forgot to mention I have a fuel leak somewhere when I fill up over 3/4, then my gauge drops twice as fast as usual, but when at half its fine. I have no idea on this one...

Thanks everyone!
