The newer power plants do not have a dip stick for checking oil level. Oil level is checked by either the I-drive or by using the BC stalk.

The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".

Your transmission is sealed and has no dip stick, checking the fluid level properly involves using a factory scan tool.

SOURCE: my bmw 330i oveheated recently but is still

When is the last time you had your cooling system services. It could mean several things, but without more information, its nearly impossilbe to diagnose.

Could be a faulty thermostat.
Could be a leak or lack of water.
Could be a vapor lock where the system was not run with the cap off after adding anti-freeze/water mixture caused by too much air in the system.
Could be a faulty or leaking water pump.
Could be a broken fan belt or fault secondar fan.
Could be a leaking head gasket.

How do I check the oil

Hi gina. Their no easy way to check the oil level on these cars. sadly BMW decided not add a dip stick for the easy pull the stick and check it. you have to rely on the oil level sensor, if its low you should get a oil level warning light on your dash. not to be confused with the service light. hope this helps.

Where is the dip stick on bmw 325i 6cylinder

there are some models of BMW that do not have a dip stick. BMW figured people were doing more harm than good with a dip stick, being able to put in whatever fluid they wanted so they took the dip tick out of some models. the only way to get your oil checked is to go to a dealer or mechanic...

2006, bmw X5, high Oil loss ( about 1qt per 1000 miles), PCV tested, BMW indicates that it is a 5 on a scale of 6 which will then be replaced (3 is normal). What else could be causing the high oil...

oil sep not causing this issue,this would be caused by the crankcase valve both on 6 and 8 cyl,if you have a 6 the part is locaed below the intake behind the throttle,you must also remove the dip stick and clean out the drain on the stick,if you have a 8 cyl than you must rere the intake and repl the rear cover and oil drain, also this issue is more commonly found when temps are very cold.either way this should be replace to prevent furhter damages to the enigine.this should solve the oil consumption issue as long as there are no other leaks present

Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.
