    I have a great cylinder head for trade: But it's not the correct part for my 1998 528i. It was a rookie move. I bought the wrong head, thinking it was right, paid a ton of money (way too much) for it to be redone, but now I just want this to work out. I want to trade this ($1200 into it)...

    Hi, I just completed my 2008 BMW 120i M-sport cylinder head job DIY to get rid of white smoke and oil burning issue. Car is running smooth and great. Dealer quoted AU$5k but I DIY'ed to do the repair in just over AU$1.5k including all the parts. I am happy to share my experience and knowledge if...

    hi, folks. Almost three years ago (but not quite, thank goodness), I got the car of my dreams, a 2011 335i convertible coupe, manual transmission. I'm its first owner. Love it. But... Brought it in five weeks ago for a whirring/whining sound and reduced power on acceleration. I'd asked them...

    Hi guys: I was overhauling the cooling system on my e34, and i pulled out the head and it was wasted, i mean, dead. Not even a chance to rebuild it. Somebody is offering me a head from an E28 535i, but searched on the internet and it doesn't seem to fit. If someone has one for sale, or know if...

    Hi, My e39/M52 was showing all the signs of a blown head gasket. So I tore it apart and took the head to my local machine shop and it turns out the head is cracked. :( I got a head from a '94 525i and I am getting ready to reassemble the engine, but there are some differences. I searched and...

    my 2001 bmw 330ci blew out a spark plug and the threads on the cylinder head are destroyed. I was looking at the timesert spark plug inserts kit and they seem to be a solution to my problem, however i would appreciate if anyone has had experience using this spark plug thread repair kit and if...

    Hey All!! I hope everyone is having a better weekend than I. I have an 07' BMW 335xi that my wife drives which led me to buy the 2009 335d. I bought it from KG Motors in Mason Ohio I drove it to a friend who works near by at a garage, and is a VW guy but has scan tool and can scan BMW's. The...
  9. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    I have 1983 533i. It quit running and I found it has a crack in the cylinder head on cylinder 5. I'm looking for a remanufactured cylinder head. The other alternative is to part the car out. Any one interested?
  10. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey guys. Straight to the point. Will I run into problems if I want to place a non-vanos cylinder head from a 1990 525i on a 1993 525i which is vanos? Did anybody do this kind of swap? Its either that or parting it out, so any help would be greatly appreciated. -Thanks

    So we finally took off the cylinder head. It was filled with coolant and the head gasket is an obvious issue. After a quick inspection it looks like it is corroded/chipped in one place. I know that the best way to find out if the head is good is to take it to a machine shop but could someone...
  12. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So i have this 1990 325i that has a warped head and the nearest machine shop is asking way to much to take the head apart. So if i can do it, the price is about half just for the cleaning and the milling. I have the head out and is sitting on my work bench. My only problem is that star bolt on...

    Q: What is in the Bar's Stop Leak product and what will it actually do in an E39 that overheated? Normally we have a canonical thread for what every common fluid does in the E39, but today, while trying to help someone with a head-gasket/cooling-system/cracked head leak, I typed /bars leak F3...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm in search of a cylinder head for an e60. Please contact me if you know of a place that might have it at a reasonable price in California. Thanks!
  15. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Just wondering if anyone has pulled the heads on their n62 as part of a DIY? I can also join the weep hole / coolant pipe issue club. Left me overheated and stranded. I've got the engine ready to reassemble ------> doing the expansion pipe route. I just rec'd the AGA pipe today. Don't...

    I just changed out my cylinder head. I flushed out the old oil and ran a oil based solvent through it, then fill with cheap oil. I fill with coolant and checked for leaks and worked out as many bubbles as I can. With all that done are there any other adjustments or checks that need to be done...
  17. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hello, I have a question about casting numbers and compatibility. There seems to be two casting numbers and no straight answers. I have seen a 1738070 and a 1738400. They both go to 6 cylinder BMWs but one is for a M52 and the other is for a M50. I have been reading into it and one guy will say...
  18. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    My e34 overheated and my baby started smoking, really bad. So I pulled the cylinder head off in accordance to the Bentley service manual and shipped it out for inspection and resurfacing. Two hours later I got a call. The head is cracked on the block mating surface and not reparable. I have been...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Of course I am already freaked out that this is a cracked cylinder head but let me just post what happened. I am driving through Nebraska and got a call so instead of staying in the restaurant and taking the call, I jumped into the car and idled and had the AC running for 20 minutes in the...
