Other than that no problems, oil changed every 3k miles, original battery, trans, and even suspension. If you live in a part of the world with very low quality diesel I would recommend trying Hot Shots diesel extreme, and then using the every day diesel treatment (at every fill up). Apparently they use this at the ford and gm dealerships to remedy diesel issues. It really makes a difference! It also cleans the injectors and removes soot, your pocket will also thank you with the mpg gains. Good luck all!
Interested what coolant hose if you know. I hear their is a common failure hose at higher miles.

I assume at 124k you've already done things like replace the control arms/bushings, coolant tank bleed line, and other high mileage common failures, right?

BTW did you know Pleasanton Garbage Service will give you milk jugs and heavy duty plastic bags (for the filter) for when you do your own oil changes, and then will pick them up with your regular garbage pickup? I've been taking advantage of that.
Hey bud. Glad to have someone local with BMW 328D expertise.

2014 bmw 328d

My car has 88K on the odo.

Here is brief service history. Haven't stepped in dealership yet except NOx sensor which was covered under warranty.
60k air filter
64K Brake fluid flush
67k front left control arms. Both on left front side. (was involved in an accident)
70k transmission fluid with pan replacement.
75k both nox sensor replacement (Under warranty) EGR inspected and checkout OK (Under warranty)
79k cabin air filter replacement, diesel fuel filter replacement.
81k brake fluid flush, coolant drain n refill

Questions:
1) Experiencing burning oil smell lately inside cabin. Looks like valve cover gasket leak. Any DIY video online to follow to get this done? Can the cabin smoke due to EGR issue (pending recall)?
2) Thinking to do rear diff oil replace and drive belt replace. Anything else experts here recommend at this mileage?

Being in CA, I wouldn't worry about replacing brake fluid that often. Once every few years is more than fine (unless you track the car, which I doubt...)

Was the 79k fuel filter change your first? I think these need replacing every 40-50k miles.

The cabin smoke smell could be related to the EGR cooler issue (see this thread: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1851961)

I'd do both front and rear diffs fluids, and have your mechanic double-check that your rear diff seals aren't leaking.

Drivebelt should be good to at least 100k, if not 120k.

I did rear diff at 100k.

This or if the gasket for the valve cover right above this area is seeping, you'll need to change the valve cover gasket.

I would use newtis for this, not youtube.


Visible smoke is a LOT more specific to valve cover gasket (oil smoking as it touches hot exhaust). Besides, burning oil has a very specific smell.

Should be a keeper!

These cars last a long time if given proper maintenance. You got yourself a keeper!

If you smell diesel smoke,yes. But if you smell rather a "burned" smell, it probably VCG.

From the Engine Control Module (also known as the DDE):
0x273600 Exhaust gas recirculation position, long-term drift: Position deviation too high (current / new condition) (*clean your EGR valve. If it returns, replace it)
0x29FB00 DeNOx system, warning and shutdown scenario: Warning level 1 (*likely a stored code from when DEF fill was too low, or of low quality)


The ICM code is likely old and insignificant to anything. This comes from the Integrated Chassis Management module; nothing to do with engine.
0x480134 SBS function - direction of travel unsafe with velocity greater than 2 m/s


SCR (selective catalyst reductant) module code. Have you put in lower quality DEF in the past? This + the DeNOx system code earlier point to a bad DEF fill once. It may be an old insignificant code.
0x8051B5 SCR return pump, taught volume outside of valid range (DFC_SCRPODVolLrnBFP)


Climate control codes from the IHKA module, both insignificant old codes and can be cleared:
0x8011B9 Layering potentiometer: Short to plus or open circuit
0x8011F9 PTC-Module: Reduction of heater output due to power management
I cant tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to give this detailed response. From everything that I have research what you are saying absolutely lines up. I figured most of the codes were insignificant, and my DEF was low, actually Im changing fluids today. As far as EGR goes, Im going to try to clean it out.
Once again I thank you for your time.

have seen some 328ds listed for sale with close to 200K on the clock so, these may be durable machines?

great to hear!! I've got a 2014 328d with 53,000 mi and I love it!! when stopping it can exhibit a rough idle, jumpy tach which seems to correct if I shift from drive to neutral or park. any ideas what's causing this? like the transmission and the engine fight when stopped in drive...
