2015 Avensis with the 2.0 BMW diesel engine burning oil.


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I wonder have many of you had issues with the 2015 2.2 Avensis burning excessive amounts of engine Oil?

The car has always been serviced with genuine Toyota kit and currently has 56000 miles, it always used a little Oil between servicing but just required around a half litre top up over 15000 miles to keep it on the upper mark of the dip stick. since the last service it has required around two litres of Oil to keep the level within range and the five year  warranty has now passed.

The only BMW engines were the 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesels. The 2.2 is a Toyota engine. So which do you have?

Is it a 2015 as per the topic or a 2016 as per your profile?

It isn't the 1AD series engine, it is the 2WW (BMW).

The AD series was a Toyota engine. They only used a BMW diesel from 2014 (Verso and Auris/Avensis from 2015) to fill a gap in their diesel range for a 1.6 to compete with other manufacturers (VW, Ford, etc). It probably wasn't cost effective to design their own 1.6, and using the BMW engine in both 1.6 and 2.0 made sense for production.

The AD series had issues early in life as regards heavy Oil consumption and head gasket failure, but these were largely fixed from late 2009. Like any diesel, increasingly stringent emissions controls also caused further potential issues later in life (EGR, DPF, etc).

thanks dude thats why wanted something reliable. you say they used thebmw engines in 2014 was that a 2.0 bmw wngine in 2014 as my toyota avensis is a 2014 with a 2.0d4d engine but as you say it is a ad series engine so its for sure a toyota engine. i know id say il have bother with the dpf in my one as my avensis is the 2,0 d4d 1adftv dpf cars

The Verso had the BMW engine from 2014, and the Auris and Avensis had them from 2015. So yours would be the Toyota engine.

Guys, 

Sorry ive not been on here for some time but its great to see all the activity.

My Avensis is still using engine Oil and now requires a service, as the car is out of warranty i am thinking of servicing it myself and using a different brand engine oil just to see if anything changes, I also want to document the miles against the exact Oil usage on a different brand Oil to see if there is a difference.

I assuming the Oil burn may not be a common fault with this 2.0 BMW engine?

Maybe get the car serviced at Toyota dealership and then record Oil use per mileage.  If AFTER the service and as a result of your Oil recording you do find it is using Oil take it back to the dealership and get them to investigate it under the RELAX warranty that you'll get as part of the service.  Just to flag up that the warranty won't cover pre existing issues prior to the service so may not be possible to pursue this route if there is definitely a problem at the moment.........

Willss, 

I never knew that a warranty was available for servicing work, surly it would just cover the service parts or a defect relating to the service? I have just serviced the car myself as the warranty period is over and intend to closely measure oil usage against mileage for now but maybe I should of had chat with my local Toyota dealer first.😨

I have used another engine Oil brand with the same ACEA C3 spec as the genuine Toyota 5w-30 and also inspected the turbo via the air inlet for any signs of excess moment or wear which may cause Oil usage , i know the engine will require deeper investigation if the fault persists but it seemed like a good idea to remove the air inlet line during the service as it only meant removing a few extra clips etc.                                                                                                                          Thankfully the car is running well with no other issues at the moment and it looks like the problem I am experiencing is not common on the forum..

Just couple weeks ago Toyota UK announced a new plan that extends what was the cars 5 year warranty up to 10 years so long as you have car serviced at the right intervals by Toyota themselves. Further, a new car now has a 3 year warranty (not 5 year) and the discounted servicing for Toyota cars over 5 years has gone.

The new plan is called Reflex and you can read about it on this forum or got to Toyota uk online.

Thinks guys,  

I bought my car from mainland UK at 15000 miles, since then it has been serviced with genuine Toyota kit by my local garage so the five year warranty would not be invalid, as the warranty is now up i have carried out the latest service myself.

Im assuming this may mean my car does not qualify for the Relax program?

The Relax warranty extension is given when the car is serviced through the Toyota dealer network - so self servicing won't be valid.

Yea that's what i though, i'm totally on my own with the engine Oil usage problem.

I Think it may be worth having a chat with someone within the BMW groups, the N47 engine seems to pop up quite a bit with common issues so the chances are i can get an accurate diagnosis and a rough price guide before i jump into major engine repairs , first i need to rule out crank case breather faults which seem quite common, I do like this car and don't want to let it go but it may end up being the best option.
