Question about BMW 318
First thing to do is replace the PCV valve. Next thing is have a compression test run on all cylinders. This will tell you just how much wear there is. If there is just normal wear and the engine is not using allot of oil and is running fine then you can continue to drive it with no worries of it blowing up the engine. I can assure you the bearings are worn so there is no way I would go to all the trouble of removing the pistons and replacing the rings without doing a complete overhaul including replacing all the bearings. You need to have the heads planed and the cylinders may need to be trued in order to overhaul the engine correctly. You can then be assure of many more miles with this engine. My advice is have this looked at by a trusted mechanic who can tell you exactly what you need to do and what it will cost. Do not do a partial overhaul and leave the old bearings in place. In fact as I have said if it is running ok with no knocks and it not using an excessive amount of oil, just keep driving it.
