2002 BMW 745i Q&A
2002 BMW 745i Question: bmw problems
I have seen that the V8 BMW engines are a bit delicate. I have worked on V8s that have torn up their timing chains and sprockets at way less than 100,000 miles which took out some of the pistons. If the customer likes to really 'drop the hammer' on these engines, I have seen a lot of problems, including melted CATS, which will over heat and damage the engine. The factory oil and recommended long oil change intervals are suspect. I attended a BMW factory class on the 745i and the first thing the BMW instructor said was to use different oil than the BMW oil which is Castrol blend( he recommended Mobil 1 ) and change the oil at 3000 -4000 intervals. these are some of things that I have seen first hand with the V8s Mercedes requires Mobil 1 for all of their engines. It is a fully synthetic 0-40 European Car oil. - dandd
