I have a 2014 bmw 320i will not kick into eco mode. Stuck in comfort mode. If I turn car off then on it allows me to put on eco drive but shortly switches to comfort mode:::what gives?


There is most likely a software error. Your 2014 BMW has a full maintenance and service warranty for 4 years or 50,000 miles. Never try to fix anything yourself during this period, or BMW may void your warranty. Just bring the car to any BMW dealer and it will be fixed for free. The maintenance also covers free wiper blades, lightbulbs, windshield washer fluid, brakes, oil changes and anything that can go wrong except for a collision, or worn out tires. You have a good car with a great service warranty - don't mess with it yourself!

My m5 bmw 2006 use oil every 2000 miles, please help


How much oil is using oil? Some oil loss can be expected just read the owners manual. That is why most german cars say dont overfill as that will siphon oil out and fill oil only when it reaches the low mark.

BMW X3 2.5si M series. High Oil Consumption


hi, this consumption seems high, i would take it to a dealer and ask them to check the oil sensor.......
P.S. is there a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust, if so, it may be burning a little oil, ask dealer to check it

Valve Lifter Noise on 2001 525.


The Castrol synthetic 5W20 oil may be too light for your car. None of the following three sources recommend 5W20 oil.

Per Bentley manual for 1999 and later E39 BMW (excluding M5), BMW HP 5W30 synthetic oil (07 51 0 017 866) is recommended.
Per the Mobil Oil web site, Mobil 1 synthetic 0W40 oil is recommended.
Per the Castrol Oil web site:
SM 5W-30 - Thank you for inquiring about what oil is best for your vehicle. Based on the information you provided, your vehicle requires a special engine oil that can only be purchased at your local dealer. Please visit your local dealer to ensure that your vehicle is serviced properly.

Does the noise vary or is it constant? Noticed only at startup or all the time?
Another ticking noise source could be the VANOS unit.

Trouble code


The secondary air pump runs for about 2 minutes when you start the car cold. It pumps some exhaust air back into the chamber to re-burn in order to reduce emmissions. Your pump is probably working fine, but there is most likely carbon buildup in the cylinder head where the air reenters (not in the combustion chamber). This issue should not affect your engine performance, and Powerchip apparently has an ECU update which ignores this error. Many posts on this. This thread should help

Hi Cilla

The variable valve timing, may have been effected by the over heating.....I'm sure that you're already thinking what I'm thinking.....A change of oil and filter would be a good idea.... I prefer a good quality, fully synthetic oil for high performance engines....

The operation of the variable valve timing is very simple ....The computer opens a valve for either the inlet or both cams, which in turn allows engine oil to be pumped into the camshaft gear assembly and thereby force the valve timing to advance via a sealed and encased viscous coupling.....

If the oil has been damaged by the over heating, that could be the problem....I'd still suggest that you carry out the tests, which I suggested in an earlier communication to you.

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!
