Have a 2004 registered 3.0 litre diesel BMX X5.

Just been advised by BMW dealewrship that turbo needs replacement.

Car has only 60k mileage.

Should this happen at this stage in car's life?

Would I be able to query this as a manufacturing fault?

There is a breather for the turbo placed on top of the rocker cover this should be changed on service failure to change it causes it to block up and put pressure on the turbo causing it to go make sure filter is changed if u replace the turbo

Bmw x5 2005 sport diesel Had the turbo replaced as it was blowing smoke.still blowing smoke mainly when slow down or stop when going smoke disappears but not fully anyhelp would appreciated


Then the conclusion I would see is the engine is burning oil or the fuel injection is the source of the smoke (excessive fuel) or the new or rebuilt turbo is defective.

Did u sort our problem ???? My Engine is very down on power my 2005 x5 diesel takes 14 seconds to reach 60mph ,, and should do it in about 8.5 its very sluggish and power difference is insane...


I would say that having checked the fuel and air filters that theres a stong possibillity the turbos not kicking in, dont forget an x5 is a big lump and without a turbo the result would be as you describe. regards KSK
