  1. Vehicle: Recalls Campaign - Engine Low Oil Level Warning SI B 11 07 03 Engine March 2004 Technical Service Advance Information This Service Information bulletin supersedes S.I. B11 07 03 dated February 2004. [NEW] designates changes to this revision SUBJECT Engine Low Oil Level Warning With Ignition Off MODEL [NEW] E39 (M54, M62TU) with Xenon lights (option 522) produced in 03/03 [NEW] B53 (M54, M62TU) with Xenon lights (option 522) from 10/02 up to 03/03 MODEL II All with M52TU, M54, 554, M56, M62, S62, and M73 Engines SITUATION In certain instances the customer may complain of the low oil level light on or a low oil level message in the check control after the ignition has been turned off. Checking the oil level with the dipstick shows the correct oil level. Important Note: For the complaint of "low oil level message displayed while driving, on X5 4.4 up to 10/02 production", refer to Service Measure B 11 200 04 (January '04). CAUSE I Coding data error in Light Check Module IV (LCM IV). CAUSE II The oil level sensor has been contaminated, reducing the capability of the sensor to accurately determine oil level. CORRECTION FOR CAUSE I [NEW] On a customer complaint basis only, recode the LCM module with DIS CD 34, or higher. CORRECTION FOR CAUSE II [NEW] On a customer complaint basis only, replace the oil level sensor and refill engine with fresh oil. PROCEDURE II Ensure the engine is warm. Loosen oil filter cover to allow engine oil to drain into oil pan. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove any underbody paneling or reinforcement as necessary to gain access to the sensor. Drain the oil. Disconnect the plug connection (1) and unscrew the three nuts (2) fastening the sensor to the oil pan. Clean the sealing surface of the oil pan in the location of the sensor. Replace the sensor and gasket ring with new parts. Reinstall the underbody paneling or reinforcement and lower vehicle. Tighten the oil filter housing cover and refill crankcase to proper level with new oil. Do not reuse the original oil.
  2. I talked with both Justin & Adam (his technician) on the phone ... We found that their Mitchell Pro-Demand doesn't show TSB M110210 (04/01/2010) Engine Incorrect Crankshaft Central Bolt Torque Change His Pro Demand says crankshaft bolt torque spec is 50-nm & ONLY 100 degrees additional, the TSB says 50-nm & 180 degrees additional! Since the engine ran fine for 5 miles after the work was completed... I'm thinking that cam timing is off... BUT why no codes for cam crank correlation issue? Adam is going to re-check Cam Timing! Adam said the cam timing kit they used is the Baum kit that Skip put up on the post, thank-you Skip:) Adam did a cylinder leak down test and has 0% leakage, comp is 75 psi on the 1st Puff and 150 after that (Spec is 174 psi) I suggested go ahead and re check cam timing, ck cranking vacuum (3-5 inchs w/cranking throttle plate CLOSED)
  3. See PDF document 160722974.pdf
  4. I seems Odd that after you replaced all of the engine cam-timing components the engine ran flawlessly for 5 miles and then became a no start. I always say if something breaks after youve worked on it, GO BACK TO WHAT YOU TOUCHED LAST... Loose engine grounds.... etc. Are we sure the cam timing parts were installed exactly as per all of the below steps suggest? You have ALL of the appropriate factory Installation tools, Cam Holders, Crank Locking Pin, ETC. See attachments below.....

  5. What is the vehicle history? Is the car stock, Any Aftermarket flashes? We've seen fault code 303e show up after a performance flash was installed. Any aftermarket Performance add-ons?
  6. 54C6 Oil Wear Transfer Case VTG - The VTG servo motor is on the back side of the transfer gearbox. Each time the key is cycled off, the motor does a test run. If the motor makes noise when it is operating, the gear set inside the motor is probably stripped. - Check bulletins. Inspect & rebuild the VTG servo motor and reinstall. - Use the scanner to perform the VTG motor replacement function. This function will run the motor while the control unit memorizes the characteristic current ramp curve of the rebuilt motor.

  7. Plug-in Hall-effect sensors are installed in the cylinder head at the 3rd cylinder of cylinder bank 1-3 and the 4th cylinder of bank 4-6 in order to detect the ignition TDC of the 1st cylinder. The hall signal is produced by a rotor fastened on the inlet camshafts of banks 1-3 and 4-6. CONCERNING - BOTH CMP SENSORS Pins #1 & #3 are power & ground Pin #2 is the Digital Square-Wave 0-5-0-5-0-5-0-5 volts DC Since you don't have a Lab-Scope, please back-probe Pins #2 of BOTH CMP sensors, Measure for a "ON_OFF" signal of 0 volts DC to 5v DC (nothing else its either 0 or 5 volts nothing in-between) while turning the engine over BY HAND in the normal direction of rotation. (NOTE: using the Starter motor is FAR TOO FAST for a SLOW DVOM meter to keep up and be accurate) see 2 PDF for wiring diagrams DME Vehicle Area.pdf DME Engine Area.pdf
  8. All I have at the moment is this

  10. I just talked to Pat on the phone. Pat's BMW technician is the one working on the car. The DIS (GT1) report was just used as a quick scan. The OE legit ISTA was updated & used for the programming of this BMW. Pats concern is that the ULF-SBX (Bluetooth) controller is DEAD, and the Display still flickers. Most likely due to the OVER-Voltage issue.
  11. C1525-1 C1525-2 low pressure - Check fluid level. - With a scanner monitor hydraulic suspension pressure. normally its around 180-200 bar. - If pressure is within specification, the fault is not a currently an issue. - If pressure is OUT of specs, first verify correct fluid levels. ck for leaks. ck wiring at pressure sensor, Replace sensor with a known good sesnor. - If pressures still NOT correct, suspect faulty suspension pump or other hydraulic fault. - Replacement of any hydraulic component requires bleed function "Rodeo" w/ scan tool to remove all air. Perform the bleed function before replacement of any parts. - This system requires a European scanner to diagnosis. C1525 low pressure. After repairs it may be needed to apply pressure to the reservoir & open 1 bleeder at a time to prime hydraulics before operation. Pressure return circuit has a pressure of 10 bar with engine running. strut replacment requires calibration of strut w/ a europran scanner. pattern failures include: - Failed Hydraulic Pump / ABC Hydraulic Pump - Tandem Pump - Flush (ABC) Active Body Control - Failed Front Hydraulic Suspension Valve Block - Low Hydraulic Fluid Level

  13. At Diagnostic Hotline we've seen a number of issues concerning these codes HPFP pressures can be skewed bc HPFP Timing issues. Broken Chain Guide etc..... Too bad Porsche doesn't use VAG no mvb to use to see Desired vs Actual cam delta timing. Durametric and Autologic doesn't show desired and actual cam timing P0674 (P12A2) ck Valve Cover Assembly ck fuel trims & move nylon plastic hose in back of the motor (2nd part hose from brake booster) ck Vacuum Lines / Hoses ck for high in the crankcase. The crankcase pressure regulating valve is part of the cylinder head cover (Valve Cover). Remove vacuum supply hose from the intake to the housing. If the vacuum in the crankcase goes away, the issue is with the crankcase pressure regulating valve. If its failed Replace the complete Cylinder Head Cover (Valve Cover) A failed crankcase pressure regulating valve & CCV (breather system) can cause many performance issues. - excessive crankcase vacuum - lean fuel trims % - Intermittant misfires - whistling Noises - High oil consumption - Smoky exhaust
