1995

  1. 7 Series & 8 Series
    Upon recently buying this gem of a car, I replaced the power steering pump. It had no power whatsoever. Replacing the pump improved it by about 50%... I know it's no where close to how it should perform. What could cause weak power steering with a new pump?
  2. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi All, New to this forum, massive thanks to all involved. I recently purchased a 95 740il and drove it home, it was sluggish.

    Hey pals hate to make a no start thread but I'm looking for some advice. Put a new battery in 2 days ago (it was dead flat, I hadn't driven in a couple of months) and car started fine after. Yesterday no start. It cranks and sounds like it's almost going to start. My coil packs are getting...

    My 95 740il's fuel pump finally bit the dust. I'd rather not spend the cash for an OEM part if i don't strictly speaking have to, but at the same time i don't know a damn thing about these parts or manufacturers. Is one inherently better than the other? Are they the same? Are both brands...

    I've come across a 1995 BMW 530i with 91kmiles on Craigslist selling for $5900obo. Haven't talked to the guy much yet and I'm not a gear head. Just wondering what I should be looking for when inspecting and questions I should ask. Here is the CL link...

    Anyone know where I can get this part? Or if you're parting out a 1995 bmw 530i if you have this part available how much would you charge me for it.

    Wanted to share my recent work regarding how to address a failing Light Kontrol/Control Module. Such a thread undoubtedly exists elsewhere, but here's my take. My symptoms were a headlight (driver side) that wasn't quite as bright white as the opposite. Also, when I turned on the high-beams, it...

    Im a senior in high school this year and I'm trying to focus my senior project around welding and fabrication. I have all equipment (welders, bender, saws etc.) at my disposal. I've been considering fabricating my own roll cage for my e36 convertible. Does anyone have any input? Would it...

    So I slid out and hit a curb pulling out of work. No damage to my car but my roll bars behind the back seats shot up. I don't know how to get them down, and them being up prevents my top from going down. Do I need a special tool or is this a dealer only job? Any help or input is welcomed

    Hey guys, I am new, I have posted in the new member intro and was referred to this section. I lurked for a while before my purchase and have been lurking. Seems like the forum isn't so busy that I can't just have a thread for the upcoming few weeks while I do a lot of work on my car. If its...

    So a year ago I bought a 1995 740il and I love it, although it had a few mechanical problems that I've fixed its a really nice car. The only downside is it has no radio! The Part number is or should be "65128352868" Anyways I went to an Audio Express to install a brand new after market radio...

    Hello All! I have installed a new starter and there is a wire that clips into something...somewhere..I can't find where it plugs in and for some reason can't remember where I unplugged it from. Any help is appreciated. I've attached a photo that includes the clip.

    I have been looking for the yellow starter relay for over a week. I have checked under the dash and hood nowhere to be found. Car won't start but the lights come on. Key goes all the way through but no crank.
