Question about 2004 BMW X5 3.0i
I just had my car oil service and air filter replaced and noticed that my consumption is all over the place. For 2 years I had a steady 8.2l/100km. Took it back to the mechanic and they checked the air filter and all appears ok. What else could the reason be?

That was just a generic answer I do not know your particular car. Back in the day we put oil around the intake gaskets and if the engine speed increased or steaded we knew that we had found it. I also could be other things. Have you tried Carb/injector cleaner in with the gasoline? A vacuum leak could be too small to show on a vacuum gage but a person could look for or at least confirm a leak with the gage. Sorry I can not be of more help.

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!

Humm ...Didn't die before the accident? now dies? BMW has good mechanics,but could not find any problem???. I gota think that it is related to the rear ending,but how? I would look for loose connections, Battery Ground that might have been removed before welding.Battery terminals, Any primary connections that may not be making 100% contact . It's worth a try.Good Luck
