Question about 2001 BMW M5
Ok, it is not recommend to increase the viscosity of the oil to compensate for oil consumption. This is a sign of major ware that is taking place inside the engine. these problem spots are listed below.
Reasons for oil consumption---
1. Worn or Scored Cylinder Block.
2. Worn or Broken Piston Rings.
3. Engine Overloaded, due to excessive speeds.
4. Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
5. Leaking Head Gasket.
6. Incorrect Rod or Main Bearing Clearances.
These issue are very serious and, they should be repaired asap. you can use this 10-60 if you wish but, this will only prolong the inevitable. This 10-60, will produce a high level of sludge. This sludge build up, will clog the oil distribution ports that are placed through out the head and block. this will kill your engine and all internal parts.
i understand that you are looking for a quick fix here and, a total break down and, rebuild of the engine is very expensive but, the sludge that will be produced by this 10-60, will increase the repair bill dramatically.
