Along with our BMW Service, we offer a complete engine rebuild service tailored specifically to individual customer requirements. The majority of engine rebuild work that we undertake is focused around two prominent BMW engine failure scenarios which have prevailed in recent years.
The following are the most common issues relating to engine failure:
Swirl Flap Failure
Broken Timing Chain – Diesel engine
These issues offer an insight into our BMW engine rebuild experience and the specialist skills required to properly rebuild an engine which has suffered extensive mechanical failure. Other types of engine damage we repair:
Oil starvation – causing ‘bottom end failure’ – damage to big end bearings, crankshaft, main bearings
Water ingress / damage – causing hydrolocking of the engine, resulting in bent con rods
The BMW Diesel Engine – Timing Chain Problems Premature timing chain failure has become a serious problem for many BMW owners. A range of BMW diesel engines produced between 2008 and 2012 appear to have a design problem affecting the timing chain. The engine timing chain is very weak – it stretches over time, and ultimately snaps. BMW timing chains have snapped on a range of models across the 3 series, 5 series and X5 models. Most commonly affecting the diesel engines, with damages caused by timing chain failure.
