Common cause of engine damage in BMW N57 engines

Oil Pump

A common issue with the N57 engine is the oil pump. Often, it suffers damage that leads to metal shavings entering the oil. If the engine is immediately shut down, it is often possible to save it by replacing the oil pump. However, metal shavings usually enter the engine’s fluid circuit, reaching the cylinder. The shavings then cause abrasion against the combustion chamber walls by the piston, leading to various other damages, and engine failure is generally unavoidable.

The shavings then cause abrasion against the combustion chamber walls by the piston, leading to various other damages, and engine failure is generally unavoidable.

High oil consumption

The N57 engine also often suffers from increased oil consumption, which can be a result of the aforementioned defective oil pump. An oil consumption of up to 0.5 litres per 1,000 kilometers can still be considered normal for BMW engines. However, any value above this threshold indicates a significant defect in the engine. Should this lead to an oil shortage, it will quickly result in engine damage. The reason for this is the lack of lubrication, causing excessive wear on the components and bringing the engine to a halt within seconds.

additional potential causes

  • Faulty cylinder head gasket
  • Defective turbocharger
  • Overheated engine

Symptoms & Signs

  • Engine performance decreases (loss of power, engine lacks pull)
  • Extremely high oil consumption (more than 1.5 litres per 1000 km)
  • High coolant consumption
  • White / blue exhaust smoke
  • Metal shavings in the oil
  • Unusual noises from the engine compartment
