Question about 2004 BMW 5 Series
I have an X5 3litre diesal 2002.
A few weeks ago it started off with a slight miss and I was topping up the oil now and again. I then started to get blue smoke mainly at idle and low revs.
I took it into my garage and they said an injector was leaking into the chamber, so they changed it along with the turbo as the seal had gone.
Now it runs and drives perfect but still fills the road up with blue smoke and the oil still needs topping up.
Is it worth dong a compresion test on it, or could it be something else.

Hi , if you have had a turbo failure on this vehicle , just replacing the turbo will not cure the cause of blue smoke . depending how bad the seals had gone in the turbo you would need to replace , the complete exhaust system , the crankcase breater , air intake manifold , air charger but only if these items have been contaminated with oil , they would not be able to be cleaned out , hope this helps , regards mark
