How much is a new crankshaft?

Post by ewora »

It seems as my luck is running out with the 116i I purchased 3 years ago. In the last 4 months I had to replace the DMF, clutch, 2x driveshafts, and now I'm facing a serious issue. The car showed low oil pressure, but only occasionally and at idle. So I took it to the shop I trust the most (they show all parts they take out, and they are honest and transparent). Hooked it up do a diagnostic device, and it showed low pressure at idle. At higher revs it gets to the safe zone. The problem is, there is no way of diagnosing the fault without taking apart the bottom of the engine. According to the shop, at best I could be looking at a clogged oil pickup line, or at worst even a new engine. How much does a job like replacing bearings or even a whole crankchaft costs? Is it something worth doing on a 12 year old car?

Put a different engine in it you will spend a fortune if your paying labour and there never quite the same after they have been that far apart
