    Hello, I have a quick question regarding the crankshaft hub bolt (the big 22mm bolt) that sits in the center of the harmonic balancer on my '07 335i. In general, is it alright to tighten this bolt? I know it should not be loosened without taking the necessary precautions, because doing so can...

    Hi everyone. I have an 09 528i and recently had the front main seal replaced. I noticed after I got the car back from the indie that there is a slight wobble in the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer. I am not sure how long it's been that way and/or if this has anything to do with the recent...

    I had issues with my 335i not starting but cranking and turing off in the middle of driving and wont turn back on but did crank. I checked the codes and end up replacing the crank shaft positioin sensor, replaced intake camshaft position sensor and had to replace the battery that was main...

    I replaced my crankshaft sensor and I am still receiving code p0335. I went to do a driving cycle and check engine light came on . As well as it turning off when stopped and long start sometimes . Prior to all this I changed what BMW told me I needed to change which was the eccentric shaft...

    Hey all, I was getting P0335 engine fault codes, which seems to be Crankshaft position sensor. Originally the car would just randomly go into limp mode while driving or start up. I changed out the sensor today, and now it is revving oddly and at random times. Video here...

  8. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi I am looking for some advice. My x5 starts and drives but as it gets warmer it begins to start hesitating, gets worse with accelerating to the point where it cuts out completely I have to stop and restart which it dose as normal but go through the same scenario. All over again. I have been...

    Oh engine builders, our band of hopeless gearheads have two questions wrapped in a very long post: Is the crankshaft salvageable? Cause of spun and flatten #4 rod bearing? Background (skip to observations for just the facts....) First, the engine. Our weekend mechanics "club" picked up a...
  10. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Alright then, like I said in my M52 swap thread I'll post a thread containing just the images of my old engine (M50B20); which I completely disassembled just out of curiosity. well, here is the thread: Hopefully it isn't a complete was of space, there must be someone interested in this kind of...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello guys , I purchased a 97 318i a few months ago and ran great until recently. On my way home a few days ago the car died and did not want to start. I was able to tow the vehicle home and pull the CEL code. The crankshaft position sensor is faulty according to the scanner. I would like to...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, first up gotta say it's almost a bit embarrassing that I'm putting this post up when on this very same page there's an identically titled thread for a 540i. But I've read it and they are chasing fuel issues which I don't think I have. At the moment I'm thinking the engine is getting no...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone, I've looked up on Google, used the forums search engine, other forums search engine, even YouTube and I can't find a solution to this problem and the last option I want to take is to go to the stealership. My uncle has a 2003 BMW X5 and the car decides whether it feels like...

  15. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    I have a '99 M3 S52. The "check coolant level" message on the OBC is showing up after shut off. The entire cooling system has been overhauled. Head Gasket, Fan clutch, t'stat and housing (metal), radiator, hoses, water pump, reservoir, heater hoses and gaskets have ALL been replaced less than a...
  16. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, I have a '86 325es. I think I blew a head gasket and I decided to fix it myself. Everything has been going smoothly but I'm a little unsure on how to get the crankshaft damper off. I already took the pulley off no problem. But, I'm unsure on how to get the damper off. Do I need to remove...
