2001 BMW X5 4.4i Burning Oil
I recently bought a 2001 X5 4.4i. I drove it for some weeks and everything was fine. Sudnely on a kick-down it started smoking for hell. I checked it and found it was a definitely oil burn, it is oil smell for sure, and have I had to add oil some times. Sometimes it will smoke, sometimes it will not, and when im at stop lights sitting and then take off... But then sometimes when i stop and take off it will not smoke at all.
Also there is a weird whistling noise that is sort of high pitched that is only present when im having the the smoke.
I sent it to change the rings, head-cyl bolts, and gasket set but the somoke and noise pravails and come out from time to time.
Is the motor dead or can be there some other possible reson?
