A clogged or malfunctioning oil separator on the S54 will lead to excessive oil consumption too much oil is getting burned , fault codes for fuel trim, misfires, and rough running. After a few days I have to do an oil top up. This car produced in 2003 in limited edition. This is the way the system was designed! The included drain kit allows you to route the drain hose to a mounted location near the belly pan of the vehicle making it convenient to empty at oil change intervals. A good functioning system will separate oil from the atmosphere and return it to the oil pan or collect it in a catch can while allowing the leftover vapors to burn in the combustion chamber or recirculate through the system. That is an important question, thanks. The Meyle complete kits are around £80 all in.
With more than 34,000 repair solutions for cars and commercial vehicles you can be sure Febi has you covered. We recommend replacing this hose when replacing the oil separator 11157840446. I generally drive over a 1000 miles a month, so sometimes I have topped up the level. When doing any sort of repair or maintenance there is no replacement for genuine factory parts. For me, it has nothing at all to do with costs, but everything to do with not second-guessing those with far more engineering experience than I have. This system is environmentally friendly but plagued with problems. .
I'll report back after another few miles and days. The heating elements can fail or solid oil and carbon particles can block the oil separator valve. Have only done about 2000 km so far and from what I can see the car was serviced earlier this year which was 5000 km ago. Because I have yet to pull the dipstick out 17k miles. What I would like to know is what I would need to replace on my car to stop this.
If you're unsure of your engine type you can refer to our , or check the emissions tag on the underside of your hood. To buy stroker kit for S54 is not a good idea without it you will get good power. It seemed to that not just the miles I drive but the time, the occasions I drive are count for oil consumption. When doing any sort of repair or maintenance there is no replacement for genuine factory parts. Here's another video by the guy from above 50sKid , where he goes into quite some detail on why the oil consumption problem likely occurs in our M54 engines. The heating elements can fail or oil and carbon particles can block the oil separator valve. As I said in the first post no smoke was coming from the car.
That may not clear all of the sediment and a complete replacement may be best. Note: Since the crankcase vent system is considered part of the overall emissions system, installing this may be a violation of local, state, and federal laws. I always measured the oil level at the same parking place, at the end of the day hot engine, waiting 5 minutes before check. For the first time there were no error codes. So many engines were filled with synthetic by dealers at an early stage that they can take ages to run in properly. Car has done 103K and clearly likes the long runs as she has freed up since the trip.

It is fairly common for this valve to become plugged with sludge which can create rough idle and excessive oil consumption. Took me around hour and half to remove it with plenty of swearing but it came off. The n42 engine is a bad design from bmw! I am forced to admit I check it about once a month now. Next up I'll watch his more recent videos where I think he's gone on to repair a head gasket problem, and whilst in there he also planned to replace his oil control rings with the hybrid versions, which he also gives detail on in the video below.
First used in the S62 before switching to 5W30 , then S54 I6, S65 V8, and S85 V10. I bought a liter of oil and kept it in the boot for top ups. This engine seems to be like a sieve too when it comes to oil leaks, have to very occasional puff of smoke under bonnet where oil is dripping onto manifold but i have looked and looked and cannot find where its coming from!! Those are the generic, non-specific part names listed on the invoice. Our shop also strongly recommends an oil catch can be installed in the line for the crankcase vent. Unfortunately, these blow by gases contain water vapor which is a byproduct of combustion and pick up oil mist from and the windage cloud and cam lubrication system as they travel through the crank case. The engine has always sounded beautifully smooth.
The oil separator can be replaced on its own but for a complete service we also recommend replacing the oil separator hoses and cleaning the valve cover. We can get all of that with a thinner Red Line viscosity that comes up to temp quicker and reaches tight tolerances easier. I thought i would clean it out best i could inc the pipes and there was some gunk in there but not enough to stop flow. Engine internals are all metals: steel, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, etc. Mine burns about the same amount as yours! Under ideal circumstances, the oil vapor would pass back into the intake and get burned up during normal combustion.
