Question about BMW X5
My BMW X5 4.4i with a N62 engine has 81000 mile. Everything is fine except for the messages of "oil level low" and "oil level sensor defective". The messages come out sometimes when I drive the truck for around 15 miles, turn off engine and take off my key. These messages and "oil presure low" warning light never come out during driving. I did some inspections: oil dipstick shows that oil is full when motor is not running; oil dipstick is dry when I start engine. When I stop engine again and check oil level immediately, oil dipstick is dry. 1 min later, the oil dipstick shows oil is full. I think that the oil level sensor is good. It seems that the pathway of oil return to oil pan is limited for some reasons. I would appreciate if you have any suggestions.

You need 3 basic principles for your vehicle to start fuel/air, timing and spark. You stated it seems like there is no ignition at all. First, I would pull the easiest spark plug attach the plug wire and set it on the manifold and have someone crank your vehicle with you watching the plug to check for a spark you should have a white/blue spark which denotes a high voltage. Next i'd check for fuel pressure, if you have both i would get a obd (on board diagnostic)scanner and check for trouble codes with koeo (key on engine off) if that doesn't produce any codes check your fuses and most importantly if your oil level on the dipstick was dry its going somewhere whether its a leaking gasket a crack in the engine or blow by figure out where

check the gas cap...i"ve found that a loose cap will set off the check light...if you dont have a computer to recall or reset the codes i believe it"ll just go away after you drive it for a couple days on its on once corrected.
