Anything I should bring up with the Service Manager next week? Truthbe told, you gotta watch those guys like a hawk. Ultra-high-strength steel usage on the G30 5-Series Structurally speaking not counting the outer skins , only the strut tower in the current F10 5-Series is made with aluminum. Gasoline quality also plays a role since poor quality fuels have a greater amount of contaminants and will be more likely to leave deposits. It does not get the best out of the reverse flow architecture. The car has 14,000 miles on it. If you are oiking out the coils would you not be as well as changing the sparkers too, saves going back to remove the new coils to do the spark plugs in the future? The main reason why B48 picks this shaft placement scheme maybe due to packing modular compatibility and also fuel efficiency concerns.
I think the turbo engines use a shorter mileage number. An oil that is more resistance to evaporation will hold up better at higher operating temps. What does the oil look like? If its under warranty take her in Regen - change in engine note, engine feels slightly lumpy, when you stop if its just happened, your exhaust will tick with heat dissipating. By the time I had driven about 100 miles the too much oil warning had disappeared and has never returned and been to a main dealer for a full service with no further issues. Because it lacks detergents and other additives that attack contamination the racing oils do not do as good a job of cleaning engine internals.
Since the 340i weights 140 lbs more than the 335i, we know the B58 engine, which propels the G30 540i, is no lighter than the N55 engine which sits in the engine bay of the F10 535i. I just did an engine oil change a couple days ago. Install new filter, the writing was facing out or down. This is not marketing and there are actual differences that you should be aware of. Ran the oil check level again - it still said the oil was too high and the little graphic showed the same high level I put the oil back into the car.
Base Stock Base Stock is the material that oil starts from - petroleum-based or true synthetic. It also helps seal piston rings on higher mileage engines. Screw filter back into the base. The car was serviced in January, which included the oil. As a mechanical engineer, i am sad to hear you say you know that all mechanical systems have a safety factor. I managed to find the dipstick and check the oil level.
The supersprint exhaust is also really good, nice and quiet and subtle but give it the beans through a tunnel and it sounds amazing. That's how I found about the warning. Bolt faces down, so no mess with angle draining I sucked out all the residual oil in the filter seat with a turkey baster. We will continuously update the content when new information comes in. Does that seem reasonable you? All of these new regulations add up to a cleaner environment but, as far as engine oil goes, it comes at the expense of quality and performance. If you measured it in the morning when the engine was stone cold it could just be oil that would its way up the dipstick tube running back down to the measuring part.
Street engines do not enjoy this level of attention and they need the detergents found in normal oil. So I go and check the dipstick and this is what I see. If so, nothing bad will really happen even long term - unless it's waaaay above the max,- but I'd siphon the extra out just for the peace of mind. Its a very engineering type of thing to do from what I hear. This is the essence and ultimate goal of the reverse flow design. I wanted them to use an oil I knew they didn't stock, so I put two 4-quart jugs in the passenger seat.
Being that you know so much, I'm not sure why you're here. Total cost £9 filter, oil 5w30 c3 low saps if on bogoff should be 30-40 quid and new sump plug £2. I then warmed up the car. Anything I should bring up with the Service Manager next week?. Thus we offer conservative advice that might save you a whole lot of hassle if you've got a potentially disastrous situation on your hands. And dont think the quantities they put on the work order correlate with reality- it is an imprecise science.
Any more increases and head over to your local indy. Rates and grades the quality of motor oil according to their own specifications. That's what the dealer did for me to verify that the correct amount of oil was put into the engine. I will take it into my dealer Tuesday to check for a bad sensor. Take a baseline and then after putting it together run it minus a quart and then check the results. I siphoned out just a little over one quart. .
