Info on BMW Engines

About BMW Engines

BMW powertrains have a long service life. The German company produces high-quality engines with well-thought design and good reliability.

In the late 2000s, BMW began to produce more economical gasoline engines by reducing turbocharging pressure and switching to direct fuel injection. In this case, an overhaul is advisable after 200 thousand km of driving.

New BMW engines are distinguished by a compact design and low noise level. These motors can efficiently use low-octane gas without requiring an oil change.

BMW updated its engine series in 2016 with new four-cylinder petrol and diesel units of 12-14 litres. Cooling system, pistons and crankshaft, intake and exhaust manifolds became more economical. Also, the improved amount of air going through the cylinders reduces losses in the exhaust system.

In addition to ICEs, BMW has hybrid powertrains with a two-cylinder gasoline engine or a lithium-ion battery. The petrol motor is built into the transmission block. The electric motor turns the crankshaft.

The BMW hybrid powertrains are reliable and easy to service. However, their design complexity demands special care in working with them. Most of these units consist of more than 100 parts, twice more than traditional ICE powertrains.

Decoding of BMW engine markings

The identifier is between the engine serial number and the drives axle code.

Engine type & transmission The first two digits of the designation indicate the type of motor . For example, petrol engines are designated with an “M” prefix. Diesel powertrains have the letter “D”. If your vehicle has a manual gearbox, there is no additional letter. Luxury cars usually have four-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. If you see the letters “x”, it means that your vehicle is equipped with all-wheel drive. Displacement (litres) can be found after the engine type identifier. To decode this data, note how many zeros are in front of this figure: for example, if you see a number “3.0”, it means that the engine block capacity is 3.0 litres. If there are no zeros, the displacement is less than one litre. As a rule, compact and economy cars have 1.5-1.8 litres displacements.

In most cases, this figure is not indicated on the car body or in any other places, except for some luxury vehicles from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Turbocharger A turbocharger increases engine power by increasing airflow through the engine. If your motor is equipped with a turbocharger, it will be designated as follows: if you see a letter “T” after displacement – your car has a naturally aspirated engine. If there is no letter “T” after displacement – your car is equipped with a turbocharged powertrain.
