Engine Overview and Common Failures

The B58 engine number is located on the front cover. The dry weight of the B58 engine according to the catalog is 139 kg. Coolant leaks Most complaints on forums are related to a decrease in the coolant level. The exact cause is unknown, but sometimes replacing the expansion tank cap helps. Cylinder head gasket failure This is a quite hot engine and the head gaskets tend to blow regularly. Usually, there is an immediate strong smell of burning oil, and often smoke as well. Fluctuating idle Like most gasoline engines with direct fuel injection systems, the B58 engines often suffer from fluctuating idle due to carbon deposits on the intake valves. Other weak points Less common issues here are related to Vanos phaser regulators, the purge valve, and the oil filter, which tends to disintegrate during replacement and can be difficult to access.
