About Oil Filler Caps
The BMW oil filler cap is a small cap usually made of plastic which is placed on the oil inlet as a protective covering.
The Oil Filler Cap can be found beneath the bonnet, usually located on top of the engine block, directly on the oil inlet. The cap will usually have a picture of an oil can on it and be in clear view. The oil filler cap normally has a diameter of between 2-5 inches and is circular in shape.
The BMW oil filler cap prevents dust, dirt and other unwanted debris from entering the oil supply. Dirty engine oil is not good for the car engine and will affect the performance of the engine as well as potentially causing damage to other vital engine components.
If the oil filler cap is lost or broken it will need replacing as soon as possible. Oil could potentially leak out if the cap is missing or broken and dirt etc. could get into the oil supply. The BMW oil filler cap is the perfect replacement part, specifically designed for the make and model of your vehicle, it will be perfectly compatible.
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- The very first BMW was named the 'Dixi'. They hadn't designed it (it was really an English Austin), and they dropped the name 'Dixi' very quickly, instead opting for the rather more grandiose BMW 3/15 DA-2. Rolls off the tongue!
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
