SOURCE: can't find oil level stick in engine compartment

The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

Cheers
Sean

SOURCE: 2007 530xi Sports Wagon: where is battery located on 2007 bmw 530 xi...

If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.

Hope this Helps,

SOURCE: Bluetooth passkey--'06 530XI--can you find the passkey?

The number was on a white card stuck in with the manual binder. Or if you don't have it, its located in the trunk, behind the left nav access panel on a silver "TCU" module about the size of 2 vhs tapes stacked together. if you look at the eject button on the nav player its located just to the right and is installed on about a 45 degree angle.

there is a white lable with the "PK" on it. i used a small telescoping mirror but you can also slightly pull back the trunk liner above the unit and it will be easily located. If any of this options works go to Bmw dealer for service and we found it in car computer.

How do i reset camshaft servodrive on 2006 bmw 535xi


Hi Allen, In addition to removing the covers did you remove anything else? If not, reassembling should do the trick. If yours is the engine with VANOS and Variable valve lift (with electronically controlled motor, make sure all connection and pick up sensors are good. If you've lost spark and injection, check the crankshaft and camshaft pickup sensors. Regards John
