Common cause of engine damage in BMW N47 engines

Timing chain N47

The major weak point of the N47 engine is the timing chain. It should be replaced early to avoid engine damage. The chain’s role is to synchronize the pistons and valves. If it breaks, valves collide with pistons, causing immediate engine damage. Besides the pistons and valves, several other components are often affected.

It is recommended to replace the timing chain after 100,000 km. However, symptoms of a lengthened timing chain may appear sooner, in which case it should be replaced as soon as possible.

High oil consumption

Attention should also be paid to the oil consumption of your N47 engine. It can suddenly consume more than 1 litre per 1,000 km. In this case, there is typically an existing defect within the engine, which can lead to further damage over time. For instance, carbon deposits from burning oil can block a valve, resulting in immediate engine damage.

Additional causes

  • Leaking cylinder head gasket (cracked or hairline crack)
  • Defective turbocharger
  • Engine overheating

Symptoms & signs

  • Decreased engine performance (loss of power, engine no longer pulls)
  • Extremely high oil consumption (more than 1.5 litres per 1,000 km)
  • High coolant consumption
  • White/blue smoke
  • Metal shavings in the oil
  • Loud engine noises
