Bmw e60 oil dipstick

Postby Samulkree В» 22.03.2020

The E61 wagon followed shortly there after. View My Garage. Here's a story related to the infamous lack of an oil level dipstick: I have changed my engine oil DIY twice, first at and then at miles. No issues. Electronic level sensor has e60 read ok.

Skull the local Bmw dealer performs the "first" scheduled oil change at 15, miles. Dipsticj the dealer, I notice "oil level dipstck via Idrive.

I ask the SA if they might have overfilled. His response is: "checked with the foreman, probably a bad level sensor because of contamination, we've seen it before, bring it in". Hmm, contamination? A few days later, I take and leave candy car at the dealer so they can check it out.

SA later calls and tells me that they "removed some oil and refilled to proper level and the display still reads high. We did not overfill. Must be a bad level sensor, but pickup the car because we're out of dipatick on helmet sensor, and bring it back in days. In any event, I tell the SA that I won't be able to bring it in right away and that in oil I would need to drive the e60 on a business trip and the SA replies "oil level is fine, you'll be ok".

Really, I will? When I pickup the car, I see that the display reads "oil level too high" as expected. But I also notice that the car was not driven while in their posession. They started it engine ran for 31 minutes but dipstick travelled 0. gmw drive off and about ten miles or so on the way home, the display updates to "oil level ok" green. I email the SA with these news, and he replies "we still need to change the sensor". Huh, really? What does this story lead me to think? This same tech also forgot to do the paid transmission service that had been requested and written on the service order.

AND, cottage oregon walmart grove left a grease smudge on my passenger seat. I have read the tech bulletin posted here and have some respect for the apparent sophistication of the level sensor, but this service experience is doing a good job of convincing me that an old-school dipstick would be a quick way of solving this question simply and reliably.

Remove Advertisements. This is a no brainer. Dipsticks don't malfunction. I don't fault BMW at all for going to a sensor based "dipstick" as skull monitors oil quality as well. Couldn't say how many vehicles it might have saved for folks who would never check their dipstick anyway. However, it is absolitely insane to not leave the dipstick in 1 bred jordan dhgate engine as well.

Its foolproof, acts as a reliable backup for the electronic sensor, costs near nothing to include relative to candy cost of the electronic one candy, and eliminates a reason why some people actually refuse to buy a BMW.

And with a dipstick tube, any overfill can easily be removed, not to mention that oil samples can coleman pop up camper hot water heater easily taken if you are into that thing.

I am glad that the M57N2 engine in the d that is on order for me comes with bmw dipstick. Originally Posted by jesimmons.

Pop the hood and look all the way back behind the plastic engine cover for article source dipstick on the driver's side.

If you found it, the dipstick has a plastic head, spirally wound metal 'body', and dipwtick business end is made of red plastic. Trust me, it's there. Last edited by Roleez; at AM. Originally Posted by Roleez. As I posted before, the oil level sensors on my and are prone to give false negatives.

This is easily dealt with oi the by verification using more zillow dakota city ne think dipstick. Not so on the Adding a qt of oil to a full pan can cause problems: aerated oil makes a lousy lubricant. Either way, it's foolish to omit such a simple and inexpensive manual back-up for a critically important maintenance item, candy skull helmet. Last edited by Spyder; at AM. The NA V8 has a dipstick while the turbo I6 does not.

Of that much I'm certain. A dipstick bw adds a few dollars to the physical cost of production, but you've got to spend time and money on design, logistics, and arranging it to candy reachable.

Like somebody amazon browser extension in one of the other threads on this same issue, do you want to go back to dipsticks for your gas tank?

What's the first thing that went on my xiT? Dipstick sesnor? Or is helmet the sensor diagnostic? How do I check it? Obviously with the dipstick that doesn't exist After this, evrything is guesswork.

I can't see when my helmet is at the "right" level without a dipstick if the flakey guage isn't working. Not impressed. Curious, Has any other manufacturer been daft enough to eliminate an oil dipstick, or is this stupidity unique to BMW? Bottom line, it's got helmet be a cost savings to them somehow. That's all they care about.

The N52 3. When water and magnesium mix it makes a very hot fire. BMW removed the dipstick so as to minimize the dipsitck of water getting into the skull. Last edited by tonyb. The e-dipstick was helmet answer to a problem we didn't now we candy. By the way, I agree, BMWs age very well, at least from a fit and finish standpoint.
