Excellent. What I'm looking for. I'd say that as these filters were old, their efficacy was reduced and as such, I'm seeing the benefits now of improved fuel flow such as better idling and improved...

Fuel Filters

I finally got around to changing the fuel filters on the 530 this past weekend. They were, of course, older than dirt and it took some serious penetrating oil to get the worm drive fasteners off. To...

Sounds exactly like a vacuum hose has come loose somewhere. Check them all twice.

I suppose I'll be doing this newspaper test today when I get home. But I have read that someone else has had a similar issue, although they called it "moaning" as opposed to "roaring". In their case,...

The problem is that is appears when I am driving. I've already tried to record from inside the cabin and the audio does it no justice. Listen to a dump truck as it takes off from a light. Exact same...

It is intermittent and throttle dependent when it appears. I've done one bank of plugs for the day and a visual reveals absolutely nothing on the passenger side of the car. Well, I did find a fin...

I wish I had a way to record the sound for everyone to hear but it is exactly like a big truck, a dumptruck say, as it pulls away from a stop light. Perhaps I'll pull the aux fan and listen for a...

Roaring Sound

I'm doing the plugs on my 530i this weekend and thought I would go ahead and tackle another job on my car: the roaring noise from the driver side of the car. Essentially, I have a roaring sound that...

I drive a 530i daily. Mine is a 5 speed and I know how to do most anything on a car, including this one, outside of pulling the motor (which I could do with a little instruction I'm sure). It comes...

My local breaker has received two new E34's today so I'll be on my way there after work. I carry my tool bag in my car and an extra shirt for these occasions. I'm a cheap bastard.

Yes I have and there is indeed an arm. It's also one of the greyed out parts which means I'm going to have to do some heavy duty looking around. I'm not sure what else to do.

Fair assessment. I'll pull the passenger seat this weekend and see how much trouble this will be to do.

Yeah that seems to be the case. None of my local breakers have anything which is why I am asking here. I have located a few of the pieces and have updated my request as a result.

'90 seats into a '94?
