    So I guess I need to start following the oil consumption thread. Very weird top end noise started today after a hard pull through a few sweeping corners... Comes to find out, no oil on dipstick The noise is not traditional lifter tick and I only noticed as a I drove by a concrete walled building and thought, that is a weird sounding lawn mower, o wait, that lawn mower has no one on it and is off, (turn music down some), o FU, that is me.

    Also, my growler for cold brew contacted my 32mm wrench in the trunk and lost that battle. So not only is my car making weird noises, I am also going through Cold Brew withdrawal... Damn it feels like a Monday. Going to take the work truck to get fix for both of us. Hoping a quart of engine oil added top down will quiet the engine down and make my tick / knock noise go away

    You didn't get a low oil light/beep? I did while in SC and had to add almost a quart.

    Same as ElCID.... I got a low oil light and it also needed about a full quart.

    I think pretty much every M54 uses oil. My e39 as well. It became my habit to check the oil level often and I always have a quart of an oil in the trunk.

    all engines use a little oil... the M54 uses oil thanks to the CCV system. it's entirely fixable for $10 in parts.

    Right, little is what I meant. I haven't replaced my CCV system yet and haven't had any of the symptoms.

    What kind of fix are you exactly talking about?

    3' of vacuum line and a 1-way check valve for the drain line to the oil pan. if you search of 'oil consumption thread' on here, you will find it detailed. this 'fix' works well if you're in a warm climate - where are you located?
