That is the pump for the N52. It is all aluminum. The electrical connector is on the other end for the N54. It has a higher wattage. The rear of the case also has a flattened conical shape. ...

O'Reilly Water Pump for N54?

I am asking because I am about to do my third OEM pump replacement. The first pump failed in 2016, I think it leaked. I used OEM/VDO replacement. In 2018 I replaced that pump, it was leaking thru...

You should scan it for codes too. The auto parts stores can scan for basic codes but often don't get the BMW codes. DIY repairs on BMW's are not as scary as they sound but if you have zero...

As mentioned earlier - use car-part.com to see if a local yard has one. Could save you money over the ebay price. You have motivated me to change fluid in ours, tho.

I agree with kd7iwp, there is probably a loose hose or vacuum line that is off. Start with a serious visual search under the hood. The misfires and mixture control codes are the ones that really...

I seem to recall 8mm hex. I used a socket in a ratchet and a cheater bar to loosen mine. Yes, it was scary. If it's a X-Drive, drop the rear of the front drive shaft.

I bought style 243 rims for my E61 from junkyards. I searched car-part.com and then visited them. I paid $50 to $75 each for decent rems with minor signs of wear. My car came with El Cheapo...

The picture looks about right to me. 7 ft lb or is is 7 nm? I thought it was nm.

It's not much but it needs to be even.

Hmmm,

It's an iPhone 6s Plus. Last model with a jack. What confuses me is that when I plug it into my garage stereo and my kitchen stereo it plays perfectly with quality sound.

My car will...

Good idea replacing it because they do crack pretty easily. A crack might be the real leak.

Probably turbo. Head gasket failure in the N54 is kinda rare. I think you're on the right track. Valve covers crack regularly. Be sure to use a torque wrench to install the new one. The torque...

My '06 530xiT has pretty good sound from CD and even from radio after using the TECHNIC harness and adding some amps and an equalizer. That said, the Aux-In from my phone sounds like a $3 transistor...

I agree, sniff it. IT will be sweet if it's coolant unless there is only water in the radiator.
That is a lot of smoke but it does not look like oil.
Now the trick is locating how it gets in there.

2008 535xi oil life won't reset

Our 535 faintly sounds like a Cylon from the original Battle Star Galactica show. It's as cold as can be, tho. I only hear it at stop lights. Not gonna touch it yet.

I would fix it but I really like the E60/E61 cars. Our 2008 535xi is over 220k miles now. We bought it at 160k and the turbos are fine. I can't tell what work was done before we got it. A good...

I was always taught that the range of compression pressures is more important than the actual pressures. Yours looks OK to me. Turbos can leak both oil and coolant into the exhaust. If there is no...

Our 535xi is at 230,000 miles now. I need to change front and rear differential fluid but all others have been changed. I plan to drive it until it drops. Love the E60's.
