Engine oil doesnot come...

Engine oil doesnot come the the camshaft and case resulting to seizure of the camshaft. After replacing the case and camshaft, we started it and the engine seized and would not start again. Do I need to change the engine completely?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

The last oil change was just last two weeks

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your BMW?

Model X5; Year 2006

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It is been worked by a private mechanic and his advise is that we need to change the engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No please.

Answer by writing since the phone lines are not working

Sorry about the wait. Did you check the old engine oil and if there is any metal present in it?

Ask Your Own BMW Question

If metal paricles present that will indicate bearing damage and the only options are complete rebuild or replaceit with a used engine. Replacing it witha used engine will be cost effective.
