2001 x5 4.4

Hey Guys,

My brother is looking into a 2001 X5 4.4. It has 155k on it, but seems to be in really good shape. Are there any major known issues with it? Especially the engine?

Thanks!

Brady

My fiancee and I picked up a 2005 X5 4.4 almost 2 years ago and so far so good.

But there are plenty of issues with the 4.4 you'll have to watch out for. The oil separator can freeze and cause hydrolock. Esp if it's a car that has been in a cold weather state.

Lots of good info you can research on there.

Personally speaking, we have had 0 problems with our X5 *knocks on wood*. When the self level susp error came on I was fortunately still under warranty and had the dealer replace everything.

Hanks Hiro, sounds exactly like E46 problems. Take care of basic maintenance and there shouldn't be any issues. Thanks!
