The engine oil filter is located just right of center if standing in front of the car. By removing the LARGE Black cap with the 36mm nut you will expose the filter element, make sure to do this before draining the oil from the drain plug in the pan. Otherwise the filter will still hold oil until loosened a bit. A typical oil change should go like this.
1. Engine Hot, not running, Loosen filter housing, don't remove yet.
2. Drain Oil, Replace plug.
3. Remove and Replace filter and O-Rings
4. Add oil.

You really cannot mis it. It is at the front of the engine, top center. Black can-shaped housing. Unscrew the top of the housing and replace the paper element inside.

Blueish smoke out of exhust,no power, puddle of oil under car, smells like raw fuel out of exhust


Hi , it sounds like your valve stem oil seals need renewing. If you mix oil with petrol it does not all get ignited hence blue smoke from the oil and the smell of petrol out the exhaust.

Code P0604 and P0444 came on in my wife's bmw 530i


P0444, Evaporative Emission System Purge Control Valve Circuit Open". I believe this (small) valve is located underneath the intake manifold behind the oil filter housing. Since there are other codes that indicate leaks in the evap system, you might have to replace the PCV, P0604 could be the coolant level, or a stuck thermostat, top up the coolant, or replace thermostat would be advisable.
hope tis helps

2002 bmw 530 I oil pump located


Your oil pump is located inside the oil pan but is part of the chain assembly. The first picture is with the oil pan removed and the engine upside down (the red arrow) the second is right side up red arrow pointing to the oil pump. That gear with the chain on it is left handed thread when removing and installing. Hope this helps....

2002 530i "OIL" microfilter - DOES THIS PART EXIST?


THe microfilter is just the filter. The oil filter is available off the shelf at advance auto parts. It's the original equipment German brand, "Mann". It's about $12.00. The price of $300 you were quoted is more the range for a transmission oil change, not engine oil.

Don't be confused about the word"microfilter". Again, it just means the filter, same as any other car.
