Modern internal combustion engines have numerous vital parts and one of them is the oil pump. Without this component, a powerplant’s internals will not be supplied with the proper amount of lubrication and thus, fail. This part is so important to the operation of an engine that BMW has issued a delivery stop on certain M models in order to fix a potential problem.
The German automaker is under the suspicion that models equipped with the S63TU powerplant could be at risk for failure. Found under the hood of the 2013 M5, M6 and M6 Convertible, the twin-turbo V8 is both powerful and expensive. Even though BMW has acted quickly to stop new car deliveries, a few have slipped out of the hands of dealers and into the ones of the public. For those cars, the brand’s Customer Relations department will contact owners and urge them to simply not drive their land rockets until a remedy can be worked out. As hard as it may seem to not burn rubber in a recently purchased M6, it might be more difficult dealing with a broken one.
