    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...

    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...

    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...

    I have read so much about the timing guides and obviously my car (99 740i Sport; build date 11/17/1998) falls into that category, but I have read differing opinions about the oil pump bolts. At the moment (I have only driven it ~220 miles since buying it a month ago) the engine revs great on...

    Hey folks, any help would be appreciated. I've talked to several mechanics and no one has firm ID on what the problem is. The M54 3.0 engine on my 2003 Z4 is making an odd sound when its hot. It does not make the sound when the engine is cold, and takes about 15-20min to get warm enough for...

    Oil leak help: I'm looking for similar experiences or suggestions. I have a 2005 645. In the last several months, I've replaced the valve cover gaskets, the lower oil pan gasket, the oil pump and pressure switch. Today I learned that oil is leaking from the upper timing covers and perhaps the...

    I didnt ever think I would post a question about a "clicky" sound seeing how it might be anything... but here it goes.:rofl: Normally, in the morning, after my car has been sitting for 7-8 hours when I start it up there is a brief regular tempo clicking sound. It lasts for maybe 1-2 seconds and...
