SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

SOURCE: how to replace rear shocks on 2003 bmw 325i

You have to take the trunk liners off of both sides. There will be 3 13mm nuts on each side for the shocks, and under the car is a 16 or 17mm bolt that has to be removed. I hope this helps.

What is the engine oil capacity of 2002 BMW 316ti? Thanks in advance.


check your owners manual, your car is not listed in the list of vehicles legal to purchase in my country, so it has no listings even at our auto parts stores

2003 dodge Intrepid 2.7l oil leak above rear main seal after running 20 minutes


rear main seal usually only leaks when the car is running. though oil will slowy drip off afterwards. now the best way to tell is to remove the heat sheild that covers the flywheel and look at it and at the flywheel . is the oil only on the engine side of the cover or is it inside the cover and on the fly wheel. the rear main seal will leak into the bellhousing and on the fly wheel the oil pan gasket will leak on the front of the heat sheild.

My bmw 316ti compact keeps cutting out when slowing down towards a junction. The engine/revs shudder and the car locks up. It starts again straight away afterwards but what is causing it and how much will...


my 2003 bmw 316ti se id doing exactly same as this but also a rough idle when started from cold. it cuts out at most junctions etc when putting on breaks and pushing in clutch, starts no problem. it drives beautifully when out of town etc no overheating etc. please help. i just had a mechanic on it for 5 hours with no solution.

there was a fault came up when plugged into diagnostics (MAF sensor) but checked maf sensor and it is a new one so erased fault code and hasnt came back so assuming this wasnt erased when new part put in.

I have a 2003 BMW 325i. We had the oil changed and had discovered a drop of oil under the car the day before. The repair shop replaced our oil pan plug because it was cracked. Today we have 5 or 6 drops...


It could well be a PVC valve. The PVC plumbing on e46s is not one of BMW's best designs, and it needs to be cleaned out every 100k miles if not sooner.
Not likely a rear main. I have never seen a failed rear main seal on a 6 Cyl BMW.

Are you sure it is not power steering fluid? I would be surprised if a 2003 were not leaking a little power steering fluid by now if the hoses have not already been replaced.
Another common oil leak is the hose that feeds oil to the VANOS.
If the leak is toward the rear of the engine, I would look for a valve cover gasket leak.
The service engine soon light is almost certainly unrelated to the oil leak.

My 2003 bmw 325xi has a oil smell inside the car. no oil spots on garage floor but oil is needed once a month.


A small amount of oil could be leaking from valve cover on to hot manifold, the oil would burn off leaving a oil smell that could permiate car interior.

2006 BMW 530i with a slow/small oil leak.


Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

I would like to know whre the oil filter is situated on a 2002 316ti BMW?


it's not so much an oil filter as it is an oil filter element in a cannister with a removable top. look for an aluminum looking circular thing with a 10mm 6point bolt head on the top center. That's your oil filter cannister housing. unbolt the bolt......lefty loosey rightey tightey and voila.....there's the oil filter element. It is in the engine compartment, accessable from the top, not the bottom of the car.

The ABS warning light on my BMW 316ti is flashing.


The flash may be a faulty brake light switch located on the rear of the brake pedal
