Attention!

Perform engine oil service only when engine is at normal operating temperature (>70 °C engine oil temperature).

An exact engine oil level is only determined with the engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C.

The engine oil temperature can be read out on the instrument cluster.

Observe the exact engine oil filling capacity.

Overfilling the engine with engine oil will result in engine damage.

Inspection and drip-off times must be observed.

Note:

On the S85 engine, an oil sump for engine oil is installed with separate oil chambers. At an engine oil service solely the oil quantity from the main oil sump (rear oil chamber) is drained. The engine oil from the front oil chamber is continuously delivered to the main oil sump by a separate oil pump. For this reason, it is necessary to operate the engine for at least one minute at idle speed directly before an engine oil service.

Attention!

When working on the ending oil, coolant or fuel circuits, you must always protect the alternator against dirt contamination.

Risk of damage!

For this reason the alternator must be covered with suitable materials.

Recycling:

Catch and dispose of drained engine oil in a suitable collecting vessel.

Observe country-specific waste disposal regulations.

Necessary preliminary tasks:

 

Remove underbody protection

M5: Loosen service flaps

M6: Loosen engine guard

Engine oil service BMW S85

S85 engine with screw plug (up to 03/07).

Explanation of the instrument display:

  1. Engine oil level OK.
  2. Engine oil level at maximum.
  3. Engine oil level too high (≥ 0.5 litres ovefilled).
  4. Engine oil level at maximum.
  5. Quick measurement is running: engine oil level is being measured.
  6. No value can be currently measured (engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C).

Run engine at idle speed.

Engine oil service BMW S85.

Repeatedly press on-board computer button on turn indicator lever until the display for the engine oil level can be read off on the instrument display.

Press the on-board computer button for longer than three seconds:

displayed value is reset

Run the engine at idle speed until the engine oil level has been remeasured (engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C).

The required engine oil temperature for an engine oil service has therefore been reached. Measuring range from minimum (3) to maximum (2) = 1 litre.

Tilt long extension (1) with nut and screw plug in direction of arrow.

Catch and dispose of drained engine oil in a suitable collecting vessel.

Pour in engine oil.

Attention!

To ensure engine oil can not be overfilled, firstly fill the engine with 8 litres engine oil.

Park vehicle on a horizontal surface.

Start engine and run at idle speed until engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C.

Press the on-board computer button for longer than three seconds:

Remeasure the engine oil level.

Measuring range from minimum (3) to maximum (2) = 1 litre.

  1. Engine oil level (+ 0.6 litre)
  2. Range for maximum
  3. Range for minimum

The filled quantity of engine oil is 0.6 litres above the permissible minimum.

Top-up quantity to be calculated:

1 litre – 0.6 litre (display) = 0.4 litres top-up quantity.

Attention!

A top-up quantity less than 0.5 litre is not displayed on the instrument cluster.

This means that a renewed query of the engine oil level again gives the value + 0.6 litres.

Run engine at operating temperature for one minute at idle speed.

Pre-delivery check / engine replacement

Carry out distance reset by only using the diagnosis system.

Service – engine oil

Distance RESET can only be carried out using the diagnosis system or instrument

cluster.

Precise measurement of the filled quantity of engine oil can be read out from the diagnosis system, in the DME in the test module (oil level measurement).

Top up engine oil, if necessary.

Engine oil overfilled

Start engine and run at idle speed (engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C).

Engine oil service BMW S85

Run engine at idle speed.

Repeatedly press on-board computer button on turn indicator lever until the display for the engine oil level can be read off on the instrument display.

Press the on-board computer button for longer than three seconds:

displayed value is reset

Run the engine at idle speed until the engine oil level has been remeasured (engine oil temperature ≥ 70 °C).

The required engine oil temperature for an engine oil service has therefore been reached.

Note:

On overfilled level value up to 0.5 litres can be displayed on the instrument cluster.

A further overfilling of more than 0.5 litres can only be read out using the diagnosis system.

The diagnosis system can display an overfill of up to 3.5 litres.

When overfilling is suspected, we recommend correction of the oil filling by using the diagnosis system.

On the diagnosis system select the following steps:

Complete vehicle

Power train

Engine electronics

Oil supply

Oil condition sensor

Switch off engine and loosen engine guard.

Release screw plug (1) on oil filter cover (2).
