    I got a 14’ 550i that’s makes a oil burn smell especially when I gas it, saw something online saying it could possibly be my oil cap seal has gone bad and it leaks there which would be awesome if that’s it lol . I took some pics where it looks like oil comes out because it’s all black and gunky...

    Hi, I am a fairly new BMW owner (well my son drives it). The oil light (yellow) keeps coming on. I drove it Sunday and the light was on. I stopped to ask if they could assist me by adding some oil. He put 1.5 quart in, he showed me how to view the oil level, which showed just under the full...

    I'm looking to get an oil change for my 2006 BMW x5 4.8is which I believe takes 8 quarts but I'm unsure as to what oil is best and what additives I can add. I just purchased the vehicle a little more than a week ago and have seen small amounts of white smoke come from the pipes but only randomly...

    '07 323i vacuum?CCV? VANOS? Hi all, Please give me a hand here! Any thoughts on a diagnosis for this issue? I've got sluggish acceleration until 2500rpm, oil smell, burning oil rapidly, stalling followed by brief engine light after a half hour of highway driving. Mechanic was no help because...
  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Is it normal to add a quart of oil every 600 miles? I have a 2014 328i and didn't have any issues with the car the first year. After the 1 year oil change, i've been needing to add 1 quart of oil every 2 gas fill-ups... I took it to the dealer and they said it's normal. Honestly, I don't care...
  7. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello all, I have a 2008 750Li, just hit 100k miles, had it almost a year and a half now. Seems I burn (nothing visible smoking or dripping) about 1 quart every 1000 miles which I believe from reading not a big issue. My concern is trusting the electronic level indicator, is there no way to...

    hello first post here, so I've been researching the past 2 days and I can only find a couple solutions but nothing specific I'm sorry if this has been addressed but my search skills are not amazing I guess. With that said: Like I said mysterious oil burning... I was told when I bought it, it...

    With my car cruising towards the 150k mark, a steady oil loss at about 1qt per 1000 miles has caused me some annoyances. The trouble of losing oil persisted notwithstanding my fixing the OFH gasket and CCV. No obvious symptoms other than the ever-dropping oil mark. With oil being generally...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I bought recently 2003 BMW X5 with 173,000 miles on it. Ever since I bought it it has the check engine soon light on. I tried a few times with a mechanic and the code was saying two things: 1. something about the vacuum in the engine not being good - the mechanic tried with nitro and it...

    Could a faulty CCV cause the oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket and thermostat to spring leaks? In Jan '13 my valve cover gasket started leaking and I had it replaced. Feb. '13 the CCV in my 2001 530I went way bad and caused oil to be sucked into the intake, requiring a new crank case...
  12. 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...
