BMW has issued a recall on a number of M5 and M6 sports car models over a manufacturing error which can lead to a total engine failure.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Due to a manufacturing process error, the tolerance between the engine oil pump’s drive shaft and the pump’s rotor was not within specification. As a result, the pump’s driveshaft could separate from the rotor.”

This lack of tolerance and potential for separation would then lead to a “sudden loss of oil pressure causing the possibility of complete engine failure, resulting in an engine stall-like condition, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.” In the event of an engine failure on open roads, drivers would become exposed to serious danger.

Fortunately, the recall is minor, with only 690 models needing repair. Affected models were those built between July 19 and September 11, 2012. BMW will begin notifying owners of the recall starting at the end of the month, and will offer a fix to the problem at no charge to owners.

To date there have been no confirmed accidents or injuries as a result of the danger, though that may be because BMW issued a stop sale notice on both models on September 21st.

Also being recalled by the German automaker are a small number of Mini Clubman and Clubman S models built in 2011 over a warning light glitch, where “in the event of an ABS system problem, only the outer circle of the symbol illuminates, not the ABS letters. As such, the driver may be unaware that there is a problem with the ABS, increasing the risk of a crash”.

Anyone with questions or concerns about these recalls is encouraged to contact BMW’s toll-free hotline or the NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at any time.
