Commons issues identified with BMW


DPF: Your Diesel Particulate Filter removes harmful exhaust particles, keeping your car within EU guidelines. If it fails, your BMW could run the risk of extensive repairs and could fail it’s NCT. Speak to our team today to see if your DPF is due to be changed.


Oil Levels: Has your oil level dropped, or have you noticed oil puddles under your car? If this is not fixed straight away, it could lead to a costly engine repair.


EGR Coolers: Exhaust Gas Recirculation coolers are there to reduce emissions from your exhaust system. If these aren’t working, you could end up with an engine that overheats, causing you more repairs if not fixed. If you have noticed a leaking exhaust or a change in engine temperature, contact our technicians today.


Swirl Flap: Designed to improve fuel efficiency, it becomes a major repair should it fail or break. If you have noticed whooshing noises when you accelerate, please get in touch immediately and save yourself from an expensive headache.


Carbon Build Up: We have seen that a carbon build-up can sometimes occur in the engine, which leads to problems starting your car or a jerking motion to the vehicle drive. Neither of which is what you want from your BMW. Contact us straight away if you encounter these problems.


Thermostat: Thermostat faults lead to your engine overheating, and these cause more problems for your radiator and coolant system. Has your engine performance changed, or have you noticed your engine running hotter than usual? Book in with your BMW Specialist Galway, and let us take care of getting you back on the road.

    This is my go to garage for all my car's needs.
    This week my son had an emergency situation, travelling to visit me, so I called John for advice.
    He provided me with a phone number to get my son help (stranded with a burst tyre on the motorway with 3 small children).
