  • BMW M40 4 CYLINDER MOTOR

    HIGHER PERFORMANCE M40 DOHC FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINE

    The BMW M40 is an inline-four SOHC piston engine which replaced the M10 and was produced from 1987–1995. Displacement ranges from 1.6 L to 1.8 L. It began to be replaced by the M43 SOHC engine in 1991, however from 1989 the M40 was produced alongside the higher performance M42 DOHC four-cylinder engine.

    Compared with its M10 predecessor, the M40 uses a belt-driven camshaft, and hydraulic tappets. Like the M10, the M40 uses an iron block and an aluminium head.

    Fuel injection for the E30 versions is Bosch Motronic 1.3, and the E36 versions use Motronic 1.7
