Hi, this is a low milage for a turbo failure , it may be worth asking for a goodwill payment where BMW will pay for the cost of the turbo. It all depends on how much fuss you make, hope this is of some help.

Sounds like worn contact points beneath your air bag OR lose horn connecting plate.
If you are a or know a handy man that can take apart your steering wheel without the airbag going off (not always advised) then you will then be able to make the connections more solid.

Did u sort our problem ???? My Engine is very down on power my 2005 x5 diesel takes 14 seconds to reach 60mph ,, and should do it in about 8.5 its very sluggish and power difference is insane...


I would say that having checked the fuel and air filters that theres a stong possibillity the turbos not kicking in, dont forget an x5 is a big lump and without a turbo the result would be as you describe. regards KSK

My BMW X5 suddenly lost power, had no acceleration and seemed to go into limp mode? Has only done approx 55,000 miles. No warning lights came on, no smoke,just loss of power. Any ideas?


could be a side light bulb or a seat belt ,sorry but here in europe this vehicle uses encrypted software so it would be back to the dealer ,now in america with its famous freedom of information act ??? but i honestly wouldnt know as it could be anything that can cause this

Hi, I have an BMW X5 56 plate 3.0diesel. 41k miles. I have noticed that there appears to smoke coming from the exhaust upon acceleration. This is happening all of the time. Also, yesterday I lost power (as...


Have a go at the Positive Crankcase Valve (PCV). its located under the engine cover towards the rear of the engine in an odd shaped black plastic box alongside the fuel injectors, Dont pay BMW the Big dollars. Buy a filter for $50 AuD on Ebay or the whole unit for $120 AuD. You have to remove the engine covers to do it but thats not so hard really, just a bit involved and takes 10 mins to remove the engine cover. The actual filter is a throw away job, but the whole PCV assembly is just a degrease and clean. Its held in place by four small hex headed bolts, when you lift it you'll find the small can shaped filter pinned underneath. Swap the filter. its VERY unlikely to be your turbo at 41,000m.
The PCV is a known issue that causes smoking and even power loss, BMW actually did a retrofit kit PCV for use in cold climates., Are you in somewhere cold? and another possibility is not using the correct 'Winter diesel' in a cold spot. Very common fault for X5 owners going up to Thredbo or Perisher snowfields in Australia for the first time!
Happy Motoring
