Clean the engine and check where it is coming from. Is it at the front of the rear> do you smell burning oil when you switch off the engine? Clean an area under the engine compartment and see where the oil is dripping from and get back to us. Typical places for leaks are the valve cover gasket, oil filter housing bracket.

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: BMW 320i is using 5L of oil every 1000miles no

Try using an automotive dye in the oil the oil has to be going somewhere the dye should reveal the loose gasket or loose oil plug in which the leak may only occur at speed under pressure and not present when stopped

SOURCE: BMW 1993 320i deep high engine knocking problem.

If its knocking its cylinder related, if its tapping its valve top end related.

SOURCE: hi; my bmw 320i e90

The smoke is blue, correct?
When you changed the oil separator, did you clean out the hose that goes from the valve cover to the oil separator?
The next suspect for smoking at idle would be the intake valve seals, but that would be the first time that I ever heard of a problem there.

Bmw 2007 e90 320I auto sedan gearbox makes terrible noise and; gets worse uphill


The first thing you need to check is for water contamination in the gearbox oil, if none try filling it with the correct procedure and reset adaptations, if there is water in the gearbox do not bother repairing it at a huge cost, they seldom get it right. Rather look for a good secondhand box that is the same make, the most common is the ZF6HP19

I am posting a link below that explains the different weights of oil that are recommended for your car, since it has high mileage you may consider more frequent oil changes (every 3000 miles) also just make sure your oil is a BMW Longlife-01 approved oil.

White smoke coming out of my 2005 bmw 320i e90, it mostly happens like a big cloud when on hills and only little on flat surfaces, mechanics can't seem to diagnose it nor I dunno if their being oblivious...


This could be two problems occuring, 1. Head Gasket leaking intermitantly (ie) Replace Head Gasket & skim head. 2. Replace the oil separation Valve or also known as Crank Case ventilation Valve.
This valve opens & closes, can be glued shut with carbon build up. Then when engine comes under load & elevated the oil from crank vent pipe can't escape but events in burning of as white smoke.
