BMW Service Greensboro NC | Prevent BMW From Burning Oil

At around 80,000 miles, all BMWs start burning oil and may encounter compression problems, or “burned valves”. Eurobahn is your BMW Greensboro NC Service Center and Valve jobs involve removing the engine’s cylinder head(s), so that the guides, seats and valves can be refurbished. This allows oil control and compression to be restored.

Usually, valve train jobs begin by dismantling, cleaning and examining the cylinder head. Heads made from cast iron are “magnafluxed”, to search for hairline cracks. Magnafluxing involves sprinkling iron powder onto the head, whilst exposing the head to a powerful magnetic field simultaneously.

Usually, valve train jobs begin by dismantling, cleaning and examining the cylinder head. Heads made from cast iron are “magnafluxed”, to search for hairline cracks. Magnafluxing involves sprinkling iron powder onto the head, whilst exposing the head to a powerful magnetic field simultaneously.

After the head has passed this inspection, it is examined for flatness. Undue roughness, warpage or other damage could make the head gasket malfunction. Should the head exceed the maximum permissible out of flatness specifications, it has to be replaced or resurfaced.

       Eurobahn Motorsports is able to perform this repair along with any other service or repair your BMW may need at less than half the cost of traditional BMW Service Greensboro NC dealership repair shop.

Now, attention turns to the guides, seats and valves. The guides are inspected for wear, and they are virtually always worn. Hence, they have to be either relined, knurled (where the bore size of the guides is reduced, by cutting grooves into the guides’ interior diameter) or replaced. The cylinder head seats are either ground or cut, to repair the sealing surface.

Each valve spring is examined and tested to ensure that it is still able to maintain the correct pressure. The keepers, spring retainers and other components are examined as well. Any damaged or worn hardware is replaced. Then, the valves are fitted into the head and leveled to restore the correct valve height.

Whereas every dealer repair shop performs all of these steps, they do not do so as affordable as a certified repair shop. Having the engine valve train conditioned can cost your pocket book quite a bit, however before you write a check or scan a credit card contact an independent certified BMW Repair service Greensboro NC center like Eurobahn Motorsports. We are able to perform this repair along with any other service or repair your BMW may need at less than half the cost of traditional dealership repair shop.
