    I have a 2007 BMW 530I that I wish to install a manual transmission in. I know I need a new driveshaft, clutch, flywheel, and transmission, however I would like to know if there are any other parts required and where to source them. And if there's anything I should know or look out for before...

    So I bought a used 05 530i a few months ago and have been hearing this odd noise coming from either inside or in front of the dash on the passenger side. Symptoms: A noise that is hard to describe. It sounds like if a buzzing, a humming and a ticking noise were all mixed together. Maybe throw...

    Hey so I'm kind of lost at this point and I've read A LOT and I'm either reading the wrong things, cant find the right things, or am very slow. But either way I've decided to finally start a post. So I messed my car up and basically I ended up going with the option to shell swap. I crashed an 03...

    THE TRANSMISSION GEAR LIGHT IS ON, WILL NOT SHIFT INTO GEAR WITHOUT MANUALLY RELEASING THE EMERGENCY LOCK UNDER THE SHIFTER, IN "D" IT IS CONSTANTLY STUCK IN ONE GEAR - 2ND OR 3RD (?). THERE IS A NOTABLE "KICK" WHEN SHIFTING THE LEVER FROM "P" TO "R" OR "D" POSITIONS. THE CAR DRIVES 20-30MPH...

    Hello! I am in desperate need of some advice on how to deal with a Secondary Air Monitor that will not run. I need the car to pass smog for state registration but I'm having incredible difficulty in setting this monitor. It's one of two monitors that won't run (EVAP and Secondary Air) and...

    My e60 530i won’t start. Cranks, but engine doesn’t sound like it’s turning. I’ve went ahead and changed fuel pump(even though I heard it whirring) and fuel filter with oem Bosch pump last week. A few days ago I put in new spark plugs (denso #5344) and just yesterday I changed coil packs...

    recently i have deleted the fan clutch for space and ease of access. i want to know how i can make it run at a low speed all the time. it comes on but turns off and then comes back on when the obc reads 97c. usually driving around it stays at 93c and it never goes above 99c even sitting for...

    my 2003 530i has an issue where the high beams and turn signals need to be on to be off, for example, when you push your blinker switch back that's how you turn on your high beams. but for me that's how i turn them off, to turn them on i'd have it how you would normally have them off. this is...

    I have done a decent bit of research recently, and have come across maybe two forums on this topic so far. The slight problem with that was the forums were from around 2010! I have a slight understanding that the 530i/5spd cars were the rarest of them all? even including the m5? I would also...

    I have a 2007 530i. I noticed a coolant leak so I pressure tested the tubes but they were all good. I assumed that it has to be a head gasket leak but after learning more about cars I am thinking it could potentially be a leak with the intake manifold. I am getting error codes for a misfire in...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    so I've been on my adventure to turn the M54 into a tank in terms of reliability by lowering operating temp lower bar coolant cap and m50 intake manifold for easy access underneath. my question is how can i connect the pipe from the m56 valve cover to the m50 manifold. I should i drill a big...

    Hello all. I was thinking about getting rid of my 02 BMW 530i and was seeing what I could expect to get for it. The problems it has are: 1.The digital odometer is not working 2.The front 2 windows don't work (driver side goes down but really slow going up) 3. The engine blew the middle spark...

    A couple of days, an only 1 year ago serpentine belt was shredded. Thinking on it, I'm sure it was caused by the year-long leak from the oil filter housing deteriorating the rubber of the belt. But that's another issue that won't go away. The bigger issue at hand is that after the belt blew out...

    Hello Everyone, I finished up doing the coolant pipes and CCV on my 02 530i and after getting the car back together no more misfires and no new codes. However, after going for a short drive smoke started coming out of the hood, and taking a look showed the source of the smoke somewhere on the...
