oil pressure

  1. 1 Series & 2 Series
    Hello! I was hoping some one could help me with a car problem? I recently bought a bmw 118I sport, 2010 registration. It had done 80k miles, one previous owner and has a full service history. It drives beautifully, no noises, all good. I don’t drive much but I recently took a trip, and on the...

    Hello everyone, so I have a 2008 535XI with 77k miles N54 engine , my car won't start and gets zero compression in at least 3 of the cylinders according to my indy. Back story: I purchased the car the day it died. It had a very weak battery from sitting so giving jump start took a long time...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I just got an "Engine Oil Pressure! Stop carefully" message in my 2012 F30. I have been reading many threads with different situations showing different symptoms like lost of power, sudden stop, etc... which is not my case. The oil change was done recently (about 2-3 weeks ago) in a local BMW...

    Hey, some of you may recall my story from a few months ago: blown head gasket and a fabulous suggestion here from gunyvw to use BlueDevil and keep driving. That is exactly what i did, and like a dream most of the time. Perhaps coincidentally, but (and perhaps i am an idiot) i dropped in another...
  5. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi Guys Since last week I have a problem with too low oil pressure. It happen when I am starting engine after night. There is no error in the DDE. I am getting error message on the Navi. I did diagnose and I can see that that low pressure is present up to 10 sek after start engine...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    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...
  7. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    2003 x5 3.0. 141k miles. My gf is driving to work today and gets a message on the dash that says stop ! Engine oil press. She said the car sounds really rough. Immediately oil pump nightmares start running through my mind. Any thoughts or tips ? I just replaced the oil filter housing...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My apologies if this has been covered already but I couldn't find an existing thread on it. I have a high mileage 525i (250,000 miles) that has recently shown signs of oil pressure issues. It has always had lifter noise on startup (like many other N52's) but in the last month or so the noise...
  9. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I have a 1987 325is. I put a new motor in it along with $2500 worth of random parts that it needed after sitting for 4 years. Long story short, I finally got it running and even passed smog two weeks ago after figuring out some rough idle issues. After putting about 150-200 cheerful miles on it...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello everyone, my first post here and am very happy to have joined this forum :D!!! Well, yesterday I had gone for an oil change at oil changers for my 2007 328i, while they were changing the oil and filter the car had died because they left the keys in and all the lights on, so they brought...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Car: 1998 M3 170xxx After warm up oil light is coming on, oil pressure at idle is around 5ish psi. At 700rpm light goes off. Honestly I haven't been super concerned with it has it runs mostly fine. But if there is a fix I should do it. I did a top end overhaul last spring, and put a bunch of...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So I keep getting the low oil pressure warning as I drive and I'm hoping it's just the sensor. I had this problem a couple months back but at that time the warning would stay on. I took it to a dealership and they said my oil pressure was fine and it was probably just a sensor. Turned out I got...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I recently had this work performed: alternator stand gasket (4 weeks ago)- major leak fixed by reputable indy mechanic two weeks later.... snow man gasket, valve cover gasket, vacuum pump gasket (2 weeks ago)- fixed by BMW dealer I go to start Betsy this morning and get a warning that there...

    Hello, My 1990 bmw 325i oil pressure light has been coming on for about 5 seconds then goes out just after starting up. The car is running mobile 1 synthetic 15w50 as the bmw manual reccomends. The car runs awesome! But I would like to hope to find a solution to this problem. I have heard it...

  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    so i was having an oil pressure problem with my car and i know that i need to change my thermostat, cps, o2 sensors. so today i wanted to put them together and do a simple test. i was wondering if the oil pressure is going down really low cuz of the car may be "overheating", so i tested it out...
