Question about 2002 BMW 5 Series

Small oil leak

Is the oil filter on some BMW X5's on the top of the engine? (driver-side near radiator). This is a 2001 sport package model. It appears to be an oil filter container next to an ATF container. Both are leaking a little. Is there an "O" ring or something that needs replacement?

Most likely it is your ATF container is leaking were the two hoses on the bottom connect to it. Also there is an o-ring on the cap that can be replaced. Replace the hose clamps at the bottom with quality claps with rounded over edges. Try this part number at Bavarian Autosport, CL 16-25. Here is the BMW part number for the o-ring: 32411128333. The o-ring on the oil filter cover comes with and is replaced with the filter.

How to replace fuel filter for xmw x5 d 2003?


Changing the fuel filter on an early X5 3.0 diesel is dead easy even for a novice
Pop the bonnet
The Fuel Filter is a round soft drink can size unit. Look for the main black plastic air inlet thing leading to the top left of engine bay (on your right as you face the engine) leads to a mini radiator looking think which is a fuel cooler, the fuel filter is the silver can thing right behind that..
Disconnect with a phillips head screw driver the two flexible fuel leads, unclip with your thumb and forefinger the plastic sensor,
loosen with an Allen/Hex key the side clamp and slide vertically up and out. The hex key needed is one of the larger common sizes in any hex key set from any spare parts store. Reverse the above to fit the new one. turn key On for a few moments while the pump charges the filter, check for leaks and you are away.
Its easy and should be done every 3 or 4 oil filter changes

Where is the fuel filter on a x5 diesel


Its under the bonnet, Pop the bonnet, as you stand facing the engine its up high on your right, the cars left side. its found by following the black plastic air intake to a mini radiator sort of thing which is the fuel cooler. the Fuel filter is the silver, soft drink can sized thing just behind that mini radiator thing. Its clamped around by a clamp which is tightened by an Allen key/Hex head thing, which is a common size in any set you would buy from any auto store. use a Phillips head screw driver to loosen the two flexible fuel lines and disconnect them. Unclip the plastic sensor from the top of the filter with thumb and fore finger and slide the old filter up and out. Reverse to replace. When everything is redone turn the key to the on position while the pump primes the filter and check for leaks. These should be done every 3-4 oil changes. Happy motoring!

Check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and


The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).
