Don’t Let An Oil Leak Ruin Your N54/N55 BMW

M-Spec Performance Has Solutions

Don’t let the N54 and N55 engine oil filter housing gasket leak become a serious problem for you! The N54 and N55 engines are popular power plants that are widely featured in a variety of BMW models from 2006 through 2019, including the 135i, 235i, 335i, 535i and xDrive variants. These engines are known for their performance, however there is a common issue that can cause significant damage if left unaddressed. Don’t wait until it’s too late, contact us today to schedule your appointment for a free vehicle health check.

When the oil filter housing gasket leaks, the oil goes onto the engine’s serpentine belt and various other components. If not addressed the oil will make the serpentine belt slippery and more likely to separate from the pulleys. When the belt comes off suddenly the alternator and power steering pump stop working! This causes a loss of power steering and stops the electrical charging system. Even more alarming, the belt can get sucked into the engine through the front main seal. When this happens belt material often also gets caught in the timing chain and other internal engine parts, potentially including the oil pick-up tube which clogs, causing oil starvation in the engine and leading to serious engine damage (such as seizing) requiring a complete engine rebuild or replacement.
