How to Wash Your BMW Engine Bay & Diagnose Oil Leaks - Part 1 of 4
DIY GOALS: Degreasing and Cleaning Engine Bay, Checking for fluid and oil
DIY TIME: 1 hour
DIY Special Tools: None needed (unless you want to remove the fan)
DIY COSTS: About $10 for Engine Degreaser, Engine Detailer, Armor-All,
Aluminum Foil, Zip Lock Baggies and other cleaning agents that you may want
The BMW M54 Engine and it's engine bay design are shared between several
BMW Vehicles from 1998 through 2006. These are the E46 3 series, E39 5
series, Z3/Z4 3.0, X3/X5 3.0 and the early years E60 5 series.
So this DIY for washing the M54 engine and checking for basic Oil leaks can
be applied to other BMW cars besides the E46 3 series. In the DIY when I
refer to the M54 I am referencing to all the cars. That said this DIY for
Engine washing can be used as a general guide for any modern era BMW
I spent a lot of time looking for an online DIY for washing the Engine Bay
of a car to find there was none.
There was lots of various advice ranging like lathering down the entire bay
with degreaser and power hosing it to hell and back. I also read advice
saying never use water on an engine bay and to just use a toothbrush and
rag with some light degreaser and WD40 to clean the entire bay.
I did not have all week to clean the engine nor was I going to go in there
like Rambo and power hose it down like many Youtube videos on engine
washing tend to show.
After combing through some better information and talking with my friend at
BMW's Mt Kisco Dealership in Westchester, NY I discovered the best method
was the simplest, cheapest and most safe.
First lets clear up one popular engine washing debate:
1. Power hosing your car's engine bay is bad - This is both true and false.
Some vehicles especially SUVs like Jeeps and Range Rovers are specifically
designed with parts under the hood that can withstand a pressurized blast
of water or the prolonged presence of water in the engine bay.
Alternators and other electrical components on these SUVs and cars can be
hosed down with liquid water and the vehicle will start and drive perfect
even with the engine still wet.
The alternator and "opened" electrical connectors in the M54 bay may or may
not be designed to be watered down but do not take any chances. Also since
the forever-dirty and leaking Power Steering fluid reservoir sits an inch
or two above the alternator it will usually always need several bouts of
degreasing and hosing down. So it is best to assume your M54 or BMW
alternator MUST be covered up to be protected from not only water but also
from the chunky grime and gunk that will be hosed off of the power steering
Keep in mind that all cars and engine bays are created different even
between BMW vehicles so power hosing may be fine for some cars but for
other cars it may not.
That said, besides DIYing this job yourself, the BMW Dealership (They
charge $125 and bill it under Car Spa) is probably the best place to get
this risky labor done on your car since they would know what parts can or
can't get wet. Whereas a car wash employee that makes $5 per hour who
usually power hose engine bays when detailing cars may not remember to put
your car on a pedestal as he drags the hose towards your open engine bay.
