The 2.4 liter, turbocharged, straight six made 115 horsepower at 4800 rpm and 155 lb-ft. of torque at 2400 rpm. It was also produced without the turbocharger. In that form it delivered 84 horsepower at 4600 rpm and 112 lb-ft. of torque at 2500 rpm. It came with a four speed automatic with no other choices.

The United States Congress emphasized CAFE legislation in the 1970’s and 80’s. CAFE stood for ‘Corporate Average Fuel Economy’ and used an average of the fuel economy of all models produced by a the manufacturer to grant permission to sell cars inside the country. The presence of the economic diesel engine in the BMW lineup allowed the company to introduce the decidedly thirsty M class of BMW’s.

The engine was based on the gas-driven in-line six cylinder engine found in other 5 series BMW’s and some 3 series. The gas engine featured 12 valves and a chain driven camshaft.

The 524td engine is a good, reliable powerplant, capable of high mileage and continued heavy use. Many buyers use an engine broker as a means of finding a good engine. The engine broker finds reliable sellers and good engines for the buyer. Make sure you look into the business you are buying from. Always use a credit card or PayPal and never send cash. It is too risky and any deal that sounds too good to be true probably is.
