Signs your BMW’s engine needs repair

The following signs are your BMW’s way of hinting that you need to book an appointment with an auto repair shop for engine repair.

  • Excessive exhaust smoke

One of the top signs of a failing engine is that your BMW starts producing a large amount of smoke. Ideally, your exhaust should produce translucent vapor not smoke. If you notice that the color is blue, black or white and it’s in large amounts, bring it to Toole’s Garage in Valley Springs for a checkup.

  • Check engine light pops on

Another telltale sign to lookout for is the check engine light turning “on”. Check engine light can mean a wide array of things ranging from minor issues such as a loose gas cap to serious problems. Please do not ignore the check engine light – depending on the cause, if not repaired, it could lead to further, expensive to repair,  problems.  

  • Unusual noises

As a BMW owner, you’re likely attuned to how your vehicle sounds. If you notice strange noises coming from under the hood of the car, there’s a problem. Most engine problems usually come with a knocking sound. If your BMW makes the knocking sounds, call your trusted mechanic to schedule an appointment.

  • Oil leak

Your engine needs oil so all its moving parts can be properly lubricated, If you notice oily spots under your car, you’re probably dealing with an engine oil leak. Low oil levels can cause a big problem down the road, so check the oil levels, top it up if necessary, and call Toole’s Garage to make an appointment. We can find the leak and fix it, and get you BMW back to you, usually the same day.

  • Decreased fuel efficiency

High fuel consumption can be caused by many things and one of the causes could be engine issues. If you notice that you have been filling up at the pump more than usual, it’s time to have it checked out by a professional.
