    Hello I have a 2003 BMW X5 4.4i and I'm having some issues that may be serious or may be something small. The other day when I was driving I stopped at a incline at a red light, and my oil light started flickering and I got a message saying "stop! Low oil pressure." I waited for the light to...

    Hello everyone this is my first time posting but I'm a long time lurker. I've had an intermittent low oil pressure fault happening in my 2004 E60 M54 530I. The fault doesn't stay in the fault logs in iDrive but shows up there while driving if you have the fault tab open under the service...

    Having to replace my 2010 x6drive35I engine. It's an N54 and I found one from a 335xi. The service department says that the oil pan is different but the block is the same (top and bottom). My question would be, can I use my original oil pan and swap the engines out?

    Hi Folks, My oil pan gasket seems to be leaking at a pretty good clip. Last time it was at the dealer they quoted ~$2200 to replace. It sounds like there may be some suspension disassembly involved, but this still seems steep. Does anyone have any DIY info and/or experience on replacing this...

    I have a 2003 manual transmission 325i and my oil light keeps turning on spuratically while I'm driving. I'm paranoid AF that my oil pump is going to go out, because of the light and because there is a ticking type noise, not lifters, it almost sounds like the ticking your hot car makes...

    I have seen quite a few oil pan replacements on the m54 engines within the last few month, mostly on high mileage vehicles. I have wondered how quickly these oil pans begin to develop leaks, although most of these cars are relatively old, just how soon do these oil pans begin to show sealing...

    Has anyone tried this? Own a 330i auto, honestly i don't wanna spend the 700 the dealer quoted me -__-. I saw the e36 guys did it and they claim we can also. Unfortunately when I bought the car it was supposed to be fixed. Needless to say the OFH. and the pan are leaking. Before anyone asks yes...

    Help me with this quick guestion. I'm looking for an used oil pan for my 1991 325i and have come accross several locations which ask (via radio buttons) to select either: exc.ix or ix. What does this refer to? I know about x usually refering to all wheel drive, but in this case both options note...
