  2. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    Hi, Can anyone tell me what this part is Marked orange . Random bouts of hissing. When i push on accelerator and then stop pushing and listen it can be heard for a while. Like something skipping a beat. Does not affect driving but can sound off putting. Sounds like air flow interface from the...
  3. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I bought a 2014 740 Li 2 weeks ago with 42k miles on it, from a reputable Chevy dealership (person traded for a new vette). 3 days into ownership AC started working off & on, would blow, cold in front, then fan would die down & quit, now mind you rear AC (controlled in rear worked) and cooled...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi all, Both my left and right Fresh Air Intake Ducts (the part that connects the microfilter housing to the firewall/cabin) are excessively loose/wobbly. The point at which they connect to the square port on the firewall towards the cabin appears to be in question: The ducts appear to be...
  5. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Recently went through the fun adventure of changing the control arms on my E36 and since then I have had an issue with the car wanting to idle. Car was only lifted from the front and sat in the air for about 2 weeks. Car ran and idled fine before this. Any advice?
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    There is absolutely no difference in measured air flow in INPA when i connect and disconnect the MAF sensor, even went as far as testing the MAF being connected, but the whole sensor being taken OUT of the intake tube, which in my opinion should make the car go crazy - absolutely NO difference...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Stock 2001 325i 5spd Manual I can hear the pump priming and had a buddy watch the open fuel delivery line while I primed the fuel pump and he said it sprayed out with good pressure. I already replaced the filter with attached pressure gauge along with all the hoses, but still nothing in the...
  8. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey guys, could really use a bump on this thread. Ive got 4 o2 sensor codes showing lean upstream and downstream as well as a code for connection to pcm. Car has been stumbling at times for months before the codes showed up. Also, having intermittent random misfire codes. Could use some...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Thx in advance. A few weeks back my AC started to quit on me and and only came on intermittently. A week ago it quit for good. I ordered a new BEHR blower from BavAuto and I replaced it today. Still no Air! I tried turning the air on full (to bypass the FSU). Still nothing What gives? Any...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    All I have a 2001 330xi. My front left window was acting up so I took off the door panel, including the air bag. As according to protocol I disconnected the battery before beginning. I put everything back together, the window works fine, but the air bag warning light won't turn off. I drove...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi everyone: My brother in law is having his 2000 BMW 528i with very very few miles brought over to my house to use when they are in town. (I have a big house and they like to vacation here). Anyway, in working issues with the car, the rear suspension is sagging. We rebuilt the air pump but the...
  12. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    What specific make/model air compressor do you use with your F25 X3? I'm particularly concerned that a 12 volt compressor could blow fuses and therefore be worthless in an emergency. Also, which power outlet do you use with the compressor - the front cigarette lighter or the center console? Is...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)

  15. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hey all. I've had this issue for a while in my 2014 3-series and at long last I have found a solution. I recently had a discussion with my local BMW dealership about my air recirculation selector not doing what it should do - namely close the damn valve so that outside air from tunnels or...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I love these 105 degree days! Not! My 2009 328 e92 has ac that has not been blowing cold. Cool but not cold. Added 134. Got cooler, but when I checked pressures found a problem - maybe. When I checked pressures with manifold set it was 90 degrees out. Pressures after charging were : high...
  17. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Since owning my 2015 f06 ( in the uk so right hand drive) I've had an annoying rattle behind the centre of the dashboard only when the engine is cold for the first 5 minutes or so. Then it went as the car warmed up. It appeared to be coming from behind the idrive screen. I think I've finally...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have been looking around at ways to give my 2009 328xi a few extra hp. I was wondering if anyone has installed an aftermarket cold air intake and could tell me if you can feel any difference in power or if it would be mostly just a sound increase. Even if it would just be an increase in sound...
  19. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I've heard that you can code the rear to lower even more when it has the BMW Air Rear springs? Has anyone done this yet? Curious to hear.
