    Hi guys, Title summarises the issue nicely. My car is a 2006 E92 325i with the 2.5 N52 (Euro spec, UK) at 148k miles. When the car is started cold, I have no funny issues, car has normal power, all is well. If the car is stopped and restarted once the oil reaches around 80 degrees Celsius (176...

    I have a 2014 550i with 90k miles. Should I use semi-synthetic oil now? Non-synthetic oil can cause engine sludge, but if I use top-tier gasoline, will this offset the sludge build up and be the best way to extend the life of my vehicle? two part question here-

    I have an early F10 with 8HP45 transmission, i want to change the transmission oil and all sleeves and seals if possible.

    Hi, Have a 2004 745li. Had valve stem seals, valve cover gasket done about three months ago. Completely took care of smoke coming from tail pipe when idling.

  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, hopefully there are some people on this forum who have had experience with diesel powered bmw's. Little backstory: Was drifting with my friend couple of days ago (Read was snowing heavily) everything was good, we're having a good time when in the end the car kinda straightened/spun...
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone run 5w50 in their M5? Not necessarily looking to switch to it, just curious if anyone has and has seen benefits to it.
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I lack a lot of info, but I'll do my best. My brother has a 2008/09 x3, there's been oil leaks and he had 2 gaskets replaced at different times. Now there's olddd oil, and new(?) or newish oil. Looking for easiest+cheapest way to diagnose if there's a problem now. Can't afford compression test...
  11. General BMW Questions
    Hello everyone my car has been leaking oil for a month now some bmw worker told me it was the housing gasket but I don’t think he inspected the car right I went under it and it was very philthy can the oil pan gasket cause the car from underneath to be covered in oil?
  12. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Hello everyone! I'm new here so nice to meet you all! I have a F06 640d xDrive, 2017, has 210.000km on it. I've noticed it burns oil, when driving ,,sportier" or when launching it. To give an idea, after I've taken it for the oil change, i did a trip. After 100km, it already moved from full (on...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, about 5 months ago I received an engine oil pressure do not drive message so decided to take car to a bmw specialist. He told me about the timing chain issues on these engines so we decided to replace it along with the oil pressure control valve too. Now the light has come back on again...

    2011 318D N47 once warm (20 min of high rev driving) plumes of blue grey smoke when at 1.5k revs and over when constant pressure on the accelerator is maintained. known fault: DPF is blocked, and I’ve read it could be the failing regen causing excessive pressure and pushing oil into the...
  15. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have a 2003 BMW 745i with a Oil leak problem. I am going to a car show soon and I heard about products called “Oil Leak Stop” and I was wondering if it would work for a small amount of time because the engine randomly smokes and I won’t want that happening at the show. So is there any...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, has anyone had experiences of oil getting into the dpf? I was wondering now I’ve cured a leaking crank case, if the dpf will still be able to regenerate. Not the most expensive part in the world, but it’s a farce to re-fit. Can oil be cleared from a few decent regen cycles? It’s been...
  17. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Well folks, I recently got my F32 (2013) serviced at a local garage. Just standard oil change and filter change. When I got it back everything seemed normal until my car comes to operating temperature and I get a warning to refil Engine oil by 1ltr. The I drive measurement throws the same...

  19. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi all ! I've been having an issue lately with my 2010 520D SE (F10 Manual). Have got this diagnosed by an independant BMW specialist mechanic and a general mechanic. Their diagnosis didn't seem very promising. So it started like this.... I randomly checked my oil level on iDrive and it shows...
  20. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Guy. I'm searching for a good 645/650 convertible as my anticipated weekend/frequent drive with approx 15k miles per year. I love driving bimmers but not well versed on much under the hood. Having read through all (most?) of the threads on BMW E63/64 I am conflicted in 2 areas. 1. Oil Leak is...
