I have owned the car since 2005, bought it when I lived in California with 90,000 miles in 2006, originally purchased out of Newport Beach, CA. It was my daily driver for over 13 years. Selling the car for parts...

    Hi, Had my shop confirm blown head gasket with core test. Was spiking in temperature starting about 2 months after I bought it. Haven't had it a year. Drove it about 3,000 miles. About the car: has 98,000 on it. I replaced the coolant system top to bottom after the temps starting spiking. Great...

    So my 2001 740iL acquired a cylinder 5 misfire and fuel cut off over night. When I ran the code scanner, one other code popped up. Not only was I getting the misfire code, I also got a “Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit High Bank 1 or Single Sensor” (Code P0343). I didn’t know if this code...

    So my 2001 740iL has now acquired a code that reads “Misfire Cylinder 5 and Fuel Cut-Off” (Code P1351). I wasn’t sure if this was an issue where both the coil pack and injector is bad or not. I have not yet tested either, just wanted to throw this out and see if people had similar problems. Car...

    So I’ve owned my 740iL for little over 3-4 months now. Car was pretty much mint. About a month ago I’ve started having what seems to be a system glitch. Happens whenever it wants. The speedometer will go out, gas gauge changes drastically, and the steering of the car will either get tight or...

    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...
  10. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    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...
  11. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    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...
  12. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    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 need to see how deep the injectors seat. mine seem to sit way at the upper edge. the injector body has a beveled edge that should sit down against the hole in the plenum. my injectors sit so high i can see the yellow plastic ring above the...
