5 Signs Your BMW Needs Engine Repair

 
DFW Bimmer Blog

When it comes to the health of your BMW it's important that you provide it with all of the necessary maintenance that it needs to continue to operate at peak performance. This means keeping up with factory BMW services such as 30/60/90K services, as well as simple maintenance including oil changes. However, even with routine maintenance your BMW could face trouble due to general wear and tear and high miles. To prevent engine damage from getting worse be sure to head to a BMW specialist if you experience any of these 5 signs of BMW engine trouble.

Knocking Noises

A knocking noise coming from under the hood of your BMW is often related to worn engine bearings. These bearing are what the moving parts of the motor rest on and should they become worn due to insufficient oil levels or high mileage they'll need to be replaced to prevent massive engine failure.

Check Engine Light

The check engine light in your BMW may illuminate for any number of reasons, and not all are related to actual problems with the motor. Always be sure to visit your BMW shop for proper diagnostics as soon as that light comes on to avoid further trouble.

Decrease in Performance

A vehicle that is suffering from reduced fuel efficiency, is having trouble accelerating or is suffering from a rough idle is likely going to need some attention under the hood to restore its driveability. Problems could lie be anything from a bad sensor to a blown head gasket!

Metal Flakes in Engine Oil

When you have the oil changed in your BMW ensure that the technicians are taking a close look at the old oil to inspect it for metal flakes. If any are found it could indicate that there is metal on metal contact occurring inside the motor, which is a sure sign that repair is necessary to avoid bigger engine trouble.

Increased Exhaust Smoke

An increase in exhaust smoke is a good clue that the engine is having issues. White smoke means that coolant is being burnt up, putting the car at risk of overheating problems. Blue smoke is a sure sign of an oil leak which will lead to unwanted metal on metal friction in the engine. Black smoke means your BMW is burning too much gasoline, which can lead to a number of engine troubles.

At the first sign of engine trouble in your BMW get to a BMW auto repair shop or else you'll soon find yourself with a much bigger problem.
