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.

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.
