E46 M3 Maintenance Service Package The E46 M3's engine is based on several race-developed engines - the S70/2 used in the McLaren F1 and the original S50 Euro engine released in 1995 and it traces its lineage all the way back to BMW's M1 inline-6. It blends racetrack technology with street car concessions. To keep your car running at its peak, you will want to invest in its care and that means a regular and strict maintenance schedule.

Turner's Tip for a healthy S54:
+ First thing, stay on top of your maintenance. Nothing will hurt the performance and aftermarket upgrades more than a poor running car. And these cars like to throw codes that could be either small or a big problem. Find out fast!
+ Oil leaks are common from a small valve on the exhaust side of the engine block - the Constant Pressure Valve. At first glance it looks like a rear main seal is leaking but it's almost always this little gremlin.
+ If you notice a rattle coming from the front of the engine don't immediately assume it's the VAN0S system. The lower timing chain guide is held in with a bolt located behind the thermostat housing. This bolt has a bad habit of backing out which leaves the guide rail loose. If left un-checked for too long the guide rail will break and leave you with a very pricey engine rebuild. As a bonus you can replace the gasket on the oil filter housing as it's probably leaking too.
+ However, always make sure a VAN0S rebuild is in your budget too.
+ Have an engine oil analysis done annually. This will make it easier to spot internal engine wear, including rod bearing wear, as well as head gasket failure and coolant loss.
+ Check to see that your fan clutch is operating. The stock one has a high failure rate.
+ Power steering hoses - and their crimped connections - love to leak oil. It's almost always the high pressure line from the pump to the rack.
+ Rear subframe/floor failures - make sure you have this checked every year.
+ If you track it, make sure to change the oil often in the transmission and diff. This will be your first warning signs of a problem you can't see.

    Turner Motorsport recommends Synthoil Race Tech GT1 10w-60 for your S54 engine. Race Tech is a modern high performance engine oil formulated for engines that experience extreme load pressures. Fully synthetic, the oil combines base oils and additives to provide exceptional lubrication and engine wear protection. This oil provides immediate lubrication upon cold start, offering significantly improved protection compared to other oils. Liqui Moly Race Tech GT1 10w-60 will keep your S54 pulling hard and running smooth on your commute home from work, your touge run through the valley, and while you are trying to get your best times on the track. 

    Choose the level of Liqui Moly Oil Service your BMW deserves: 

    • Liqui Moly Bronze service involves switching to Liqui Moly oil without the introduction of additives.
    • Liqui Moly Silver service includes a Pro-Line Engine Flush to remove sludge and carbon buildup from the oil circulation system.
    • Liqui Moly Gold service includes Silver service and Jectron Fuel Injection System Cleaner. This cleans your injectors and maintains your fuel system to improves engine performance and efficiency.
    • Liqui Moly Platinum service includes Gold service and Cera Tec Oil Additive. This prevents wear and reduces friction to improve engine performance and efficiency.

    Below you can add new drain plug and crush washer, along with your choice of oil filter.

We also offer a myriad of Schwaben tools. Schwaben's Professional Scan Tool vastly simplifies diagnosing your BMW. This scan tool offers OE-level diagnostics for over 25 years of models, also allowing you to access common service features like resetting your oil service light, installing a new battery, throttle body adjustment, DPF regeneration, and more. The Schwaben Fluid extractor allows you displace 6.5L of fluid without making a mess of your workspace. Lastly, we've found that the 14mm/17mm service wrench allows you to service most of your vehicle with just one tool - one of the biggest hangups with working on a vehicle is losing your tools.
