How To Diagnose BMW Engine Problems?

The to many of these type of is derived from engine oil All engines lose a certain of oil pressure over time as wear increases bearing But unusually low oil pressure in an engine, of mileage, is often an indication something is seriously wrong and immediate repairs.

Answer: A flickering oil light driving, and an oil light that is or does not come on and go off after a few when the key is turned on, is basically to warn of oil pressure related such as low engine oil, or low oil or both.

Answer: A tapping may be a sticking lifter, loose and may also be a low oil pressure problem will inevitably damage the valves. Consistent monitoring of oil and oil pressure is a must for today’s with hydraulic lifters, low bearings and small oil filters.

Answer: A knocking sound may be a piston rod bearing or failed shaft bearing, caused by a low or a low oil pressure condition that inevitably damage the lower components. Again consistent of oil levels and oil pressure is a must for engines.

BMW Oil Pressure Diagnosis

Check the oil dipstick to see that at the proper level (not low nor If low, the engine may be burning or oil. Adding oil may temporarily the low pressure condition.

Check the of the oil and make sure it’s the viscosity for your BMW and climate.(Most OE manufacturers recommend 5W-30 in engines for year-round driving.)

Check to see if the engine is leaking new gaskets or seals may fix the leak. If the is burning oil, valve seals, or rings may be worn. A test will tell you if the valve guides or rings and that are worn.

Oil viscosity, as 10W or 5W-20, may improve cold starting and lubrication but may be too thin in hot driving to maintain good but eavy viscosity Oil, as 20W-50, 30W or 40W, may help good pressure in hot weather but are too for cold weather driving and may start-up lubrication problems especially in overhead cam engines.

Check the pressure sending by disconnecting the unit and check the lamp or gauge reading. If the light remains on, then the is in the instrumentation, not the engine.

A bad sending is common, so it is replaced to see if that the problem, but failure to measure the with a gauge, there is no way of if the pressure is within specifications.

lamps usually don’t on until pressure is less four or five pounds, so a lamp doesn’t mean the is okay.

Check the filter because the might be plugged with causing unusually low pressure. The oil should be replaced at every oil interval.

Check the oil pump screen inside the oil pan. The and the pickup tube should be attached and unobstructed. (If the pump is inside the crankcase, the next might be to remove and inspect the

Check the rod and main bearing on those closest to the pump on the furthest rod bearing – will show the greatest (If the bearings are worn, they to be replaced.) Excessive clearances or anywhere in the engine’s oil supply can contribute to low pressure.

Use a mechanical pressure gauge and rely on the dash gauge or the light to verify that the you’ve made have your problem.
