BMW uses timing chains most of / if not all their cars check all data for chain replacement intervals at you local dealer

apbimmer98 answered 7 years ago

Your car does not use a timing belt. The M54 engine in your car has a timing chain, which should not need to be replaced until well over 200,000 miles.

Does this apply for a 2005 bmw325ci. So no timing chain at 200k?

apbimmer98 answered 5 years ago

Yes, your car also has a timing chain. You shouldn’t need to worry about replacing it.

Hi I have 2007 automat and 94 000km is good to change or no? Thx

apbimmer98 answered 4 years ago

If your car is also a 3 series, you have a timing chain and do not need to worry about replacing it.

GuruTLZHV answered 4 years ago

Thank you. yes 3 series and I have the timing chain .. the thing is that.. sometimes I hear sound, but usually is ok no sound at all. Oil and filter changing every year. when is time/periode to replacing this chain. Thank you

apbimmer98 answered 4 years ago

Is it usually when the engine is cold? That could be a Vanos rattle that you’re hearing. If it sounds similar to this video, that’s probably your problem. It’s well covered in BMW forums like Bimmerforums and Bimmerfest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAyQBiV5GbI

GuruTLZHV answered 4 years ago

Thank you again! Well on this video is sound or noise too much my sound is not so much as on video..and is just sometimes, so I dont know

apbimmer98 answered 4 years ago

It may be in the beginning stages, my 528i is like that too. It’s not very noticeable while driving, only if you’re listening under the hood. Keep an ear on it, but for now you’re probably fine.

GuruTLZHV answered 4 years ago

I have 318i, so well I think also.. Btw I will keep in touch whit you fo case:) thank you for help!

When would the chain belt be needed to be changed on a serious 3

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

No need to replace the timing chain on this car unless you’re having an issue.

Guru32HCP answered 2 years ago

I have a 318d 65 plate does this car have a belt or a chain ?

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

What year is that? I believe it should be a chain.

Guru32HCP answered 2 years ago

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

Ok, so you have the B47 engine. That’s a timing chain.

Mrjatt232 answered 2 years ago

I have a bmw 320d done 188k would u recommend doing the timing chain

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

No need unless you have a problem with it.

Mrjatt232 answered 2 years ago

They is a slight tap so small not all the time just sometimes just worried about the engine blowing up

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

You would want to go through the proper process of diagnosing that issue before tearing into doing the timing chain.

Mrjatt232 answered 2 years ago

Yeah I wish I knew what I was really doing because if I take it anywhere they are saying to old or chain needs doing just feed me a load off crock tbh

Mrjatt232 answered 2 years ago

If anyone would like to look it over for me I will put some cash your way as well just to tell me the truth if I am honest

GuruGNHNK answered 2 years ago

Hi apbimmer98 — I just bought a 2007 BMW 320I with 71k miles. Do I need to change the timing belt soon? Thank you!

Akg777 answered 2 years ago

Hi. I’m looking to buy a bmw 3 series however after reading various post about timing chain problems I don’t know if I should. If bmw state that it should last 200k miles, if it does go wrong will they rectify this? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

apbimmer98 answered 2 years ago

BMW 6 cylinders don’t typically have timing chain issues. I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

The last 2 days my 2005 BMW 325i started squealing on my commute to work. These days were 3 days apart and each followed a snow day in our area. The squealing started after I exited the highway about 20 miles from home and at a slower neighborhood speed. The squealing stops when I apply the brakes. No indicators come on the dash and it did not reoccur on my drive home those evenings. Any idea? First thought was brake pads. 3 Answers
