    Hey All, I am new to the BMW scene especially to E70. About 6 weeks ago I end up getting 2012 X5d with 90K miles. This one is a Base model without bells and whistles. To my surprise this one doesn’t have a spare tire ether. Everything was going well, even better than expected till last week...

  4. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, I need help replacing the valve stem seals on my N62. It is a 2006 650i no SES light yet, and it runs like a charm...but I want to keep it that way. I have been seeing blue smoke at extended idle for about 7 months now, and wanted to wait until my oil consumption became noticeable. Well...

    Hello all, Brand new user here. Got a 2012 CPO 5 series in Jan'2015. For the first 3 months the car drove nice. After that, noticed that the transmission was sticking after the first start in the morning [with cold engine] when shifting from 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th gears. After the engine...

  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Good Day, Everyone! My 2005 645Ci with high mileage has faulty engine valve stem seals and if you are familiar with this issue on the N62 engine, this causes the car to emit blue smoke after you drive off from sitting idle at a stop light. (i.e. Oil is leaking through the valve stem seals and...

  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2006 BMW X5 4.8is. I have been having the blue smoke on extended idle issue. I am pretty sure it is the valve stem seals, but wanted to make sure that I have correctly diagnosed the issue before taking the plunge. I usually see the smoke when I am in stop and go traffic, or going...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi All, I noticed this morning when starting up my car, that there was a slight blue tint puff coming out of the two tail pipes. The smoke lingered for a bit and smelt a little "odd", burnt if you will, which leads me to believe it's possibly oil that's burning. I did some research this...
  12. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    I've got a 1983 bmw 533i that I just bought for $1,400. The car is in good condition but when I start it cold I get some blue smoke. I talked to a mechanic at my school and he says it probably has something to do with the valves. Can someone please tell me what it needs and what the cost of the...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Just replaced my 2002 E39 525i radiator/hoses last weekend after it split at the upper elbow joint. Stopped before temp gauge moved more than an 8th. Now more issues. From what I can read on other threads the CCV is acting up. Noticed rough idle then a trail of blue smoke going to work...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So heres the story: Car startup on cold: cranks longer now, and blows a huge puff O' smoke. Came out of the clear blue, with only an oil change being done (dino to synthetic) prior to these problems. On a warm startup, it doesnt blow any at all. Doesnt consume oil. Search yielded little. I...
