Replacement of motive oil and oil filter

(For the diesel engine each 10 000 km)

Under trying conditions operation work is performed twice more often.

The long contact of skin with the fulfilled motive oil is quite dangerous. Use protective cream and put on gloves during this procedure. Replace the clothes which became impregnated with oil immediately.

Frequent replacement of motive oil is the main preventive procedure of service, to the available amateur mechanic. Eventually oil is subject to fluidifying and pollution that leads to premature wear of the engine.


1. Before getting to work, make sure available all necessary tool. You also should have near at hand enough rags or old newspapers for collecting the spilled oil. Replacement of oil requires the following equipment:
   A viewing hole or the hydroelevator and supports, syringe for an oil suction.
   b) Depending on execution of the filter a head of 13 or 36 mm for an otvorachivaniye of the central bolt of the case of the filter.
   c) A head of 17 mm or 19 mm for an otvorachivaniye of a stopper of removal of oil, and also capacity for collecting oil of 8 l (in case oil is not sucked away).

2. The following spare parts are necessary:
   If oil is not sucked away: A sealing ring from A12_15.5 aluminum for consolidation of a drain stopper. The ring can be delivered with an oil filter.
   b) The filtering element.
   c) A sealing ring for the case of the filter and depending on execution one or two sealing rings for the central bolt. For the same model of the engine two various executions of the filter can be delivered. It must be kept in mind it at acquisition of spare parts.
   d) Depending on the engine from 6.5 to 7.5 l of motive oil. Apply only the oil recommended by Specifications. Surplus of motive oil can be removed by means of the syringe through an opening of the index of level.
3. Start the engine and warm up it up to the normal working temperature - warm oil and a sediment follow from the engine better. If it is necessary to buy new oil, filter or any tools, go behind them on the car, thus you will warm up motive oil at the same time.
4. Park the car on a plain surface and switch off the engine when it enough gets warm. Uncover a mouth of the gulf of oil a cover of a head of cylinders.
5. For ensuring access to a drain stopper and an oil filter the car and reliably establish to a poddomkratta it on support.

Do not work under the car supported only hydraulic or scissors type by a jack at all - always use support!

6. Open the screw-driver with crosswise shliyets a cover in the lower guard of a motive compartment under the case pallet.
Give the screw-driver with crosswise shliyets a cover in the lower guard of a motive compartment under the case pallet

7. Trying not to concern the warmed components, establish drain capacity under a drain stopper in the lower part of the engine.

8. Clear the area around a stopper sideways of the case pallet, then give a stopper. It is recommended at a stopper otdavaniye on the last several turns to use rubber gloves not to get burns hot oil. During untwisting of a stopper try to press it to a case, and then sharply pull out it. It will help you to avoid contact of a hand with a stream of hot oil, and also a possibility of loss of a stopper in drain capacity.

9. In process of weakening of a pressure of oil at an effluence, perhaps, change of provision of capacity under a case will be required. Check old oil for existence of metal particles, it can warn you about wear of the engine in advance. To exclude the reasons of further damages after repair it is necessary to clean oil channels and hoses carefully. In addition, if it is established, it is necessary to replace the oil heater.
10. After removal of old oil wipe a drain stopper with pure rags. Any, even the smallest metal parts which stuck to a stopper will immediately pollute new oil.

Replacement of an oil filter, execution with the central bolt


1. Turn out the central bolt (1) in a cover of an oil filter. Execution with the central bolt.
2. Uncover (2) with the central bolt (1).
3. Wait, oil from the filter case will not flow down yet. Then take out the filtering element (3). Wipe with a rag the flowing-down oil.

4. Insert the new filtering element into the filter case.

Observe the instructions given on the filter.

5. Clear a cover of an oil filter. Replace sealing rings (arrows on an accompanying illustration) on the central bolt and a cover, having oiled from motive.

6. Put from above a cover with the central bolt and press it. At the same time the central bolt has to enter an opening in the case bottom.
7. Tighten the central bolt the moment of 25 Nanometers.

Replacement of an oil filter, execution with a screw cover


1. Turn off a cover a head of 36 mm. HUNDRED BMW for this purpose use the special tool which is installed on the outer diameter of a cover. Address an accompanying illustration.
2. Wait until oil flows down from the filter case. After that take out the filtering element (1). Wipe the flowing-down oil with a rag.

3. Insert the new filtering element into the filter case.

Observe the instructions given on the filter.

4. Replace rubber sealing rings (shooters) on an oil pipeline and a cover. Oil their motive.
5. Put from above a cover of an oil filter with an oil pipeline and press. At the same time the oil pipeline has to enter an opening in the case bottom.
6. Tighten a cover of an oil filter the moment of 25 Nanometers.

Filling of system


1. Screw a drain stopper with a new sealing ring and tighten densely, but without application of excessive force. Moment of an inhaling of a bolt of 17 mm: 30 Nanometers, bolt of 19 mm: 60 Nanometers.
2. Fill in in system through a jellied mouth of a cover of a head of cylinders new oil of the required quality and viscosity. The volume of the filled-in oil is presented in Specifications.
3. Start the engine and let's it work on the increased speed (about 2500 rpm) of until the control lamp (about 5 c) goes out. Stop the engine.
4. Wait 5 min. and measure oil level by the index of level.
5. Close a cover in the lower guard of a motive compartment under the pallet of a case and the screw-driver with crosswise shliyets turn a clip on a quarter of a turn, having closed a cover.
6. Pass on the car and check tightness of a drain stopper and an oil filter. If necessary carefully bring up them.
7. Stop the warm engine and in 2 min. double-check oil level. If necessary add oil in system.
8. If it is necessary, return the index of intervals of service to a starting position. For this purpose the special device sold by BMW is required. If necessary this operation HUNDRED is carried out free of charge.
9. It is necessary to apply oil of identical type to the best control of an operational condition of the engine and, whenever possible, brand. It is for this purpose recommended when replacing oil on the engine to strengthen a label with the indication of brand and viscosity of oil.
10. Any change like oil is not recommended. Motive oils of identical type, and brand, but various viscosity can be filled in in system in case of need during a transition period of season.
