Excessive Oil Consumption - 2007 BMW 750Li


Asked by Apr 16, 2015 at 04:57 PM about the 2007 BMW 7 Series 750Li

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The last few months the low oil indicator regularly comes on in my car. The dealer
checked no leaks and said it's normal. Mileage is 88k. This time the indicator came on
after just 22 days and 522 miles of normal commuting/driving. Doesn't that seem crazy
that it is that quick? I want to be sure it's not a sign of something else wrong. Please let
me know if you have heard of or experienced similar oil consumption? Thanks!

If you are loseing this much oil,and no leak,s found,it has to be internal,check the exhaust pipe for oil/black sute,may have bad seals or ring bad in engine.

what oil did you change with? other than that, I would agree - there appears to possibly be an internal problem

I have been adding a quart of Mobil 1 5W-30 whenever the indicator comes on. I'll have to have my dealer check it out again.
