    Hi, I did a oil service yesterday on my 2005 3 series 320D M47T2 engine. User manual says to use BMW long life 04 oil. I used Castrol Castrol Magnatec (C3) Engine Oil - 5W-40 since it said BMW longlife 04 on the back. After the oil change the car feels a bit sluggish. Not a significant loss in...

    I have a 04 BMW 525i and the oil hasn't been changed since 14k. Took it to a shop and they told me that my Vanos was very sticking/ratchety. They told me that I would need a Engine Oil Flush w/Amsoil Engine Cleaner and BG fuel system cleaner also a oil/filter/synthetic lube change for $200 but I...

    Been driving this car for about a month now and the car starts struggling/shaking going to 30mph. Took it to a shop to check it out and they charged me about $100 and they told me that the car hasn't had a oil change since 14,000 miles. She told me that was the main cause and that the Vanos was...

    Hi everyone, This forum has helped me a lot. I want to give back some data: A report from four consecutive Blackstone used oil analyses covering about 47K miles in my 2008 528i E60, which is just about to turn 100K miles. I know there's a raging debate about whether or not it's safe to run...

    Hi, all. I am new here and I just get some advice. So last week my car asked me to add 1 quart of engine oil. I went to O'Reilly and find the only LL-01 approved(though no longer) Mobil 1 0w-40 is available. I add that 1 quart to my engine and there is some engine noise at idle speed that never...

    Hi everyone, I am new here. Really sorry if this topic has been discussed before. I bought a 318i last week and checked the oil level through the menu in the dashboard. It is within limits, but 1/3 in total, so I presume the car has used some since last been serviced 4,000 miles ago? Should I...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So I went to have my car checked earlier, and the BMW service consultant gave me this sheet of paper that says CBS and has items on it that need to be serviced. (The Engine Oil, The Air Filter Element, and the Spark Plug) BMW changed the spark plugs for me and reset it. (the attached sheet was...

    Hi I used Mobil 1 0w-40 on my E65 and E46 for about 2-3 years. Both cars start leaking (which is not an uncommon problem with both models). However, the gaskets on E46 was so brittle and hard like a piece of wood. I really mean it. It was just like a piece of wood or glass, very easy to...

    Hi everyone! I have 2002 E46 330i SMG and I have two separate questions: First one is about engine oil level. I changed engine oil at BMW service and made about 1.500 km and then I realized that oil level is low I took car to service again, they added one liter oil and told me to drive about...
  20. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    HI all, i recently replaced ALternator and Battery. (to fix random messageson my dash) I noticed that when the engine is on, if you open the hood and open any LID /CAP (say engine oil), engine shuts off. He explained that my engine is choking - perhaps the valves (2 0f those - 70$ each) to...
