    I'm working on a '98 740il that had the guide rails disintegrate and the timing chain jumped off of the drive sprocket. I haven't torn it down beyond valve covers and oil pan yet. But just from that it appears that there are many valves not seating (bent), and there was a lot of aluminum debris...

    If i sit at idle, my CEL flashes for about 1/4 of a second every 2-3 seconds, slowly increasing in frequency and length, until the CEL just sticks on there and the car comes damn close to stalling. RPM's have dropped to nearly 0 when this happens, but usually hover at about 400. The CEL Code is...

    I am a new owner of a 1993 BMW 740il. The symptoms I had when I first bought her was a very loud squirrel cage when run on max high for the fan setting. The blower would not work at all on any other setting other than the fan on max high. It was also giving off a faint dead mouse smell, could...

    Re-asking question to clarify, with pictures. I've got a CEL code 1264 for "oxygen heating element", coupled with a rough idle that starts maybe 2 minutes after the car does and random stuttering when driving that's been getting worse. The code, according to the internet, has something to do...

    Good evening, I'm the type of guy that loves all that is German, especially if it has an M/// anywhere on the body. I recently got to know the joys of driving one of BMW's more beloved models: the E39. Mine specifically was a 528i that I named Lilli due to it's Alpine White color and it's also...

    I'm thinking about buying a 740 from my friends coworker. I saw the car and it looks clean on the outside. The inside could use some work, but no major rips or tears just minor stuff. The problem is the car 248k on the clock. And he doesn't have any maintenance paper work from the previous...

    I have just replaced the battery to a 1998 BMW 740iL. After the battery was replaced, the car was able to go backwards and forwards for a short distance (everything started up fine). After a few hours in park, the car will not start. The lights will turn on to full brightness and the voltage is...

    I have a 1995 740il with a DSP. I was in need for a new radio so I went by my local Audio Express and they told me it was not possible for an after market system without changing the speakers and other junk, and how it was going to take a months worth and 10 grand for them to do it. Obviously...
