Question about 2005 BMW X5

2 Answers

My BMW X5 is blowing white smoke and leaking oil. I've been advised that the turbo needs attention. Should I replace with a new turbo or fit a reconditioned trubo? It is a 2005, diesel.

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.

White smoke on acceleration from my BMW x 5


It's either that oil is leaking or the sensor that needs to be replaced. Take it to the BMW and have it fixed before it creates more problem and cost you more money.

My bmw x5 is smoking and loosing power any ideas???


Has the car overheated recently or in the past? If you are seeing white smoke from the exhuast you may have a cracked cylinder head or blown head gasket. If you are seeing white smoke from the exhaust, check the oil for signs of coolant (milky brown oil color or any foamy white on the dipstick) Also check you coolant level to see if it is lower than normal. If the smoke you are seeing is black you should also check you oil level. (could be a burned valve).

Blowing smoke whilst driving


I would advise you visit a turbo specialist, as they may be cheaper fitting an exchanged reconditioned unit.
Turbos usually fail because they operate at very high speed and heat. They tend to use the same engine oil as the main engine, and while it is suitable for engine conditions, it may not provide the right lubrication for the bearings. This is why they wear their bearings and loose oil into the air inlet - producing lots of smoke.
This is like a designed-in failpoint.
The only way to avoid it is to fit an inline oil filter to the turbo, and change it often, along with more frequent oil changes.
Use the biggest standard oil filter that will fit your engine too.

X5 diesal blue smoke


Hi , if you have had a turbo failure on this vehicle , just replacing the turbo will not cure the cause of blue smoke . depending how bad the seals had gone in the turbo you would need to replace , the complete exhaust system , the crankcase breater , air intake manifold , air charger but only if these items have been contaminated with oil , they would not be able to be cleaned out , hope this helps , regards mark

its sounds like a leaking head gasket. check the coolant to see if there is any oil in it or if the coolant is low. if its loosing coolant with no visible leaks, its probably leaking into the cylinders. best thing to do is check the compression. its should be around 170 psi with no more than a 14psi difference between cylinders.
