Question about 2001 BMW 325
Might have blown head gasket
Posted on Sep 11, 2009
Testimonial: "good posibility"
Sounds like it's pretty serious. Blue smoke is usually indicative of burning oil.
Hopefully it's your valve-stem oil seals as this is just a case of removing the head and having it refurbished.
If it isn't that it will more than likely be worn piston rings. This is the more serious option as it is possibly an engine out (depending on access) and internal rebuild and replacement. Both of the above options are expensive only because of the labour involved in replacing the parts.
Try to do as much as possible yourself to minimise expenditure.

The problem with this car is one of two things, if it is not running extremely bad it is more than likely a valve seal leaking oil into the cylinders. The other problem would cause the vehicle to run rough and possibly shake a little, and that would be a bad piston rings on one or more of the cylinders. Both are a little costly, but the rings are far more expensive due to the engine having to be completely torn apart to fix.
