SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

What is a scan tool

A scan tool allows for the OBD II (On Board Diagnostics) codes to be read from the engine computer in a car. These are common electronic diagnostics tools used by automotive technicians. They are usually used when a check engine light comes on to determine the error codes associated with the check engine light.

They almost always connect via a standard plug on the divers side under the dash.

Most automotive parts supplier will check a car with complementary service to determine the codes stored in a customers automobile.

Tdc light comes on then loses power then light goes off then car picks up speed

First thing you need to do is to have the car scanned with a engine malfunction light scanner . then you'll get a engine trouble code. even if the check engine light shuts off for sure you'll get a pending code witch is a code that was seen but could be not present at the time you scan the car.

depending on what is the code then search on google for bmw engine trouble code list and repair procedures.

to find out what codes meens go to that link

Reset the dashboard warning lights on a x5 e53 bmw 2006

A scanner can reset any light on the dash, if the problem has been fixed. A code reader will reset the engine light, again if the problem is fixed.

I have a 2006 bmw 525i, the check engine light came on for a missfire in cylinder 6. I replaced the plugs and the coil and it is running great but the light still wont go off. I have a scanner and reset...

Many newer cars computers have to see anywhere from 50-250 good trips without the original problem showing up. This doesn't mean crank, cut off, crank, cut off... It has to actually be driven through a drive cycle. Otherwise, you'll need a scan tool capable of erasing the codes, the cheaper ones may not do the trick.

I have an engine symbol in yellow and want to know what the probable causes are eg air filter,plugs etc

the only way you can really tell, is to get the car scanned for a problem code as long as check engine light is on. if no scanner, any or most auto parts stores will scan for free. but write the codes down to keep when repairing. auto-zone, advanced, etc. will scan a vehicle. have a good day !!

On my 2006 M5 the car even when jump started and drive for about a minute. The battery doesnt seem to hold charge

have you checked the alternator and or belts!! at the battery the voltage when running should be at least 14 to 14.2, then the alternator is working fine. when engine is off there should be at least 13.5 to 13.8, no less than 12 volts at battery. or battery is bad.

Check engine light just came on. Oil ok. could it be caused by a dirty filter?

The check engine light is triggered by trouble codes which means something is wrong with the emmissions systen, transmission, motor sensors etc. A dirty oil filter will not trigger a code. You need to scan the car with an OBDII scanner to get the codes. Once oyu have the codes post them here and we can help you. If you don't have a scanner you can take the car to your local auto parts store, they'll scan for free and give you the codes.
