Works fine forward, but in reverse there's a moment of hesitation, then it lurches and stalls. Don't know the RPMs as the gauges are dead from the battery being disconnected. Seems fast though. If I...

Stalls in reverse?

Working through all the E28 problems! As mentioned in earlier threads, this is an '87 535iS that's sat for several years. Idle is somewhat up and down, but not bad. But now that I've gotten it...

S-E-123 Switch?

In the 87 535is, there's a switch on the console with the 3 positions mentioned. The ex I bought it from said that in the S position it would somehow lower the front a bit.... I gotta wonder. Until...

Making progress... and ticking noises...

Finally got around to charging the battery on the '87 535iS. Instead of just a buzzing from the area of the starter, I got a sort of rumbling, then a screech (like when you turn the key with the...

Won't start at all... just the buzzing. I just realized the starter is high up on the block, about where the sound is coming from, and it may be a stuck starter solenoid I'm hearting. I'm gonna give...

E28 has a buzz....

Finally got the '87 535Is off the ex. It's been sitting a couple of years, so I'm expecting issues. Sure enough, put in a new battery, replaced one battery clamp... and all I get is a buzzing from...

Should I, or shouldn't I...

The ex-gf has got to sell her old car...an '87 535is. Has one small dent in the right rear door, not many miles on a rebuilt tranny, doesn't smoke, leak, meow, or anything. The only thing at all I...
