Burning oil, worn piston ring, bad valve seals. if its smoking bad it should have a check engine light on. check codes that will tell you the problem.

Crank case vents valves are round and on both side on the motor in front on top of the valve covers. If they are ripped they WILL cause smoking and oil consumption. As well as secondary return lines need to be cleaned out ( EGR type lines)Those are the small problems. 1-2 hundred bucks.The 3-6k problem is normally the reason for smoking and smoking at idle. To test to see if its is your valve stem seals let the car idle for 5- 10 minutes and them step on the gas. If a tuft of smoke comes out then it IS the valve stem seals. Dont waste your time with putting the wrong heavy oils in. It will just ruin your car. Get the job done by a indy for 2=3k parts and labor. Leave the European repairs to the Euro guys. That is the correct answer.

    for some one that seems to know a lot about BMW's you need to read the statement--It says BLACK smoke which is over fueling with low air content
    oil consumption is BLUE smoke
    so all of your statement is looking at the wrong symptom and would make the person seeking advice look in an expensive area
    while an EGR valve may cause incorrect air/fuel ratio (BLACK ) smoke it is unlikely to cause blue smoke

    I may stand corrected somewhat but if YOU read it I did state the fact that the CCV's (x2) do cause oil consumption, burns oil and is one of the cheap place to start($170 parts and labor). Suck it bill.

Black smoke is over fuelling or running rich. check fault codes for oxygen sensor---air sensor ---faulty injectors etc

SOURCE: my bmw 316i is burning

The first thing to do is clean the crankcase ventilation system. That may not turn out to be your problem, but you don't want to pursue other diagnostics until you are sure that the crankcase ventilation system is clear.
I am not familiar with the 316 so I cannot tell you how much work it is to get the plumbing off to clean it. I recently did my '04 325 and it was a real PITA. I have done clutch jobs that were easier than that.

How reset the flat tire on a 2006 bmw 550i


The tire pressure monitors I have seen require you to drive a certain distance after correcting the low pressure condition.I believe it uses the wheel speed sensors to detect a tire with low pressure(then one that is low will be essentially be giving a different reading because it is rotating more times at a given speed).I am assuming the system IS sensitive enough to get a false reading if one of the tires is a mismatched size,so keep this in mind.

Started driving my car this morning and immediately noticed that the clutch in my 2006 550i bmw felt funny, like it was easy to push. When I try to give it gas when taking off in first gear it shudders...


your clutch is slipping. this may be caused by worn pressure plate, clutch disc or oil seal failure. there are other components that may require attention, such as the clutch master and slave cylinders and fluid level.
