  1. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    After trying to troubleshoot this to no avail myself, I'm hoping one of you geniuses might be able to help. I did the collapsable coolant pipe job myself after the front seal finally gave out. I got the car all back together, but it only starts for a moment then immediately dies. If I give it...

    Hi, i have a 323i E36 and its got some weird problem where when i start it it will either die once or it will be fine.

    I have an 87 325i convertible that is continually completely dying at random times. I lose ignition completely and then the car won't start again for an hour or so. I've went through all the sensors (intake, replaced CPS etc) and all connections, cleaned everything,changed the spark plugs...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I initially checked the eccentric cam shaft, here is what it looks like. https://imgur.com/a/tcES7 There is oil in it and on the plug, so that means I should replace this part with one of the guides online? To recap my last post (on another site), basically the car had been shifting kinda...

    I have a 92 325i e36 sedan. I was doing and oil change and while I was down there I changed my O2 sensor. I had a check engine light that said bad O2. I disconnected the battery first (negative first). After I was all done I connected the battery (positive first). I went to start the car and as...
  7. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I just recently purchased a 525i off craigslist about a month ago and it was in great condition. The only issue was lack of door panels. It ran smooth and everything was fine, even the interior and exterior. But recently about a week or 2 ago it started overheating and smoking. Me and my dad...

    I got gifted a automatic e30 320i and it came with a few troubles. This is my first car and to be honest my knowledge is very limited. To begin with, when I start the car the idle seems quite unsteady. It'll idle like this in park for some time but occasionally will just turn off. When I do...

    Hello, I have read a ton of threads, but to no avail. My 2000 Bmw 528i auto sports package 64000 miles will start fine, but sometimes, it will not restart. At first there is a click from the starter, but very quickly, it goes to nothing. I bought a new battery, and I thought everything was fine...
