    Hi all, New here; looking for some advice on some issues I'm experiencing with my 130i LE. Overall the engine performs brilliantly; to me it feels like the car is producing good power and seems to be returning MPG I would expect. The only issues I have are quite an aggressive jerk (stutter)...

    I knew I needed to replace my disa valves due to a rough idle and a couple of different codes when the pars arrived I pulled out the old large disa valve to find the flap was gone the pin that is known for destroying engines was still there I am confused on how this happened and where the flap...

    Good Morning, All! I've been trying to solve this on my own, but to no avail. Cold or Warm, engine Sputters in Park/Neutral. Sometimes seems like it's misfiring while driving. Throwing codes P0171 and P0174, then Codes P0300-0306 (Never all together) *edit* Always P0171 and P0174, only...

    Never mind, it is apparently something else producing the sound. Turned the key on and could hear first, water circulating and a ticking sound from somewhere under te manifold. Turned key off and then on again, water circulation gone but ticking sound still present. Confused! Can anyone tell...

    I have a 2000 328CI with manual trans. I've seen a few posts on this topic but saw no good solutions. Car has alway run perfectly. Recently, having intermittent stalling issues when coming to a stop and pressing the clutch. When you hit the clutch, RPMs bounce up a bit and then drop to 500...

    I have a 2002 530i that runs great, until it feels as if the gas isnt reaching my engine properly, and causing it to lose acceleration drastically until eventually spitting and sputtering to a stop, im thinking caty converter, diagnostic recommended i inspect exhaust system and cat, and spit...

    I found a walkthrough for testing the functionality of the DISA and I'm confused on the result for the solenoid. These are the steps for the test after removing the DISA: 1. Suck in through the small hole near the solenoid plug to see if the vacuum is sealed through the diaphram enough to...

    Anyone else having an issue with battery drain because of instrument cluster. After ignition is turned off, doors closed, I hear buzzing sound from inside the engine compartment (i think it is from DISA). Also hear clicking sound every 13 or 20 seconds. This sound (both clicking and buzzing)...

    I'm in a 2004 530 which has the M54 engine. I've got about 120k miles on it. I only put 93 in it, but occasionally from Quiktrip when I'm around one. I recently started experiencing some roughness in the idle for about a week and a couple of days ago, the check engine light came on. I pulled...
  11. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Well, I had my 2003 2.5 Z4 throwing banks too lean codes, resetting to test and 85 miles later, back to a code... So I checked the MAF, everything else (hoses) seemed ok, MAF seemed dirty, so can of MAF cleaning seemed to do the trick, for about 400 miles, same code, but now also running a...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi guys, I've got a 2008 535i that has a rough idle, hesitation, a rattling sound and throws some engine codes. P0171, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0300. After some research on this forum and 5Series, I'm thinking it is this DISA valve. I don't have confidence that I could get this done right in the...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I am a new member and this is my first post. I have a lot of trouble with Rough Idling and Misfires on my X3. I have bought a set of plugs which I will change today, I am going to swap the coils around and see if the Misfire codes follow the coils and replace if needed, however, I can not...
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I was quite surprised because my car had 123k, and the DISA was in much better shape than I expected. After reading some horror stories about how DISA destroyed engines, I pulled out my DISA and checked its health. Found almost no free play, except just a little bit on the steel pin end. The...

    Hey all! Greetings from St. Louis! Just wanted to drop a line to inform any affected parties dealing with rough idle/hesitation to be sure and check the DISA valve located along side the intake manifold. My car had SES light on, and was idling *very* rough! I replaced the DISA valve which was...
  16. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    my car: 2001 X5 3.0i I recently had to remove a bunch of stuff from the intake manifold side of my engine in order to get at the pcv valve and pipes which I was replacing. Along the way, I also cleaned all of the grit, grime, and shellac from the following items... all were really crudded up...

    My wifes car is a 2002 330i 5speed with 185,000 miles that has a rattle between 2000-3000 rpm. The rattle will quite while changing from say 2600 rpms to 2400 rpms and then once an rpms is sustained it instantly starts again. It was also rattle when accelerating when reaching that rpm range...

    Hello, I just got done replacing the CCV and when I reconnected everything, I was left with one free plug that, for the life of me, I cannot find where it plugs to. I'm talking about the wire harness that's right under the DISA valve, most of the connects I found where they go, but one. I need...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone, Probably about 5 months ago I cleaned my disa, ICV and MAF. Car runs fine (maybe a little bit of a rough idle before car warms up completely), but I've been wondering if my DISA is letting in unmetered air. I don't have any codes, but I do get a sort of suctioning noise about 2...
