    Hi Everyone, A couple of years ago I bought a 2006 e53 diesel, it had multiple problems that I have been working through one of which was non functional air con. I had to replace the failed aux fan and air con belt and then re gassed it and it’s all working again. The strange thing is that now...

    That BMW X5 SUV was my personal daily driver for about 2 years! I bought it with LPG system, and I was really interested how it will perform on LPG! I can tell that on gasoline the car is performing better, check out in this video how my bmw x5 e53 4.4 l 286 hp will perform acceleration 0-200...

    My PDC system was recently not working (3 sensors silent with no click) I replace these with some I bought online and pdc now functions. However, it appears to just beep randomly sometimes, almost like its picking up the bumps on the floor or something. As a test I walked towards each sensor...

    Hi all, I have just replaced the starter motor in my e53 x5 3.0i, for which I had to take off the intake manifold to access. Now I have put the manifold back on, and I have the TC, ABS, and brake yellow warning lights. I plugged in code reader and got codes P1508, P1504, and P0102. I also get...

    I have recently taken possession of a 2003 X5 and decided to try my hand at making some keys for it. I purchased an AK90+, removed the EWS (EWS3 in my case) from my car and set about attempting to get a good dump. I had to try many many times to get a 'good dump'. My definition of a 'good dump'...

    G'day everyone!! Well today I finished my extensive engine service and try to start the car up. The battery was well charged and it turned over but did not fire up. I thought first that the timing might be off (I changed the timing chain guides) but then I checked if the engine gets fuel and...

    He guys, i have a problem with the oil pump sprocket that made a hole in the oil pain and from what i can see the chain fell of the sprocket above too ( because of the dreaded self loosening bolt )and now the big question is. , is this engine still worth it to save ( new pan and put the chain...

    G'Day everyone!! I am in the process of putting the engine back in the E53 (M62 4.4i with 5hp24 tranny). I had the engine in the engine stand and replaced all the gaskets and the timing chain guides. Did the timing with the German Auto solutions kit. Went well. Bolted the tranny back on and...

    I’m dealing with an e53 x5 with a broken aluminum line on the rack (picture included). Rock hit it. My question here is: can I simply replace the line with one from a junk yard car or do I have to replace the entire rack because of this? Both ends of the line are accessible without unbolting...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Okay so when I wake up in the morning I noticed that when I turn my steering wheel it makes like a groaning noise pretty loud. And when I accelerate (only sometimes) it sounds like a supercharger whine in the cabin. Now the car fully warms up to operating temperature but white smoke comes out a...

    HI there! I have taken the engine apart to seal it properly and also do the Timing chain guides. So I cleaned it properly inside and blown out the oil galleries and now I want to put everything back together. Now I am wondering.....usually I would leave the ignition coils disconnected and crank...
  15. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hello all, (2001 740i 4.4l) I got in a front end collision last Saturday and fixed the car (photos attached) ever since the accident (even when trying to get off of flat bed) I have been having this issue. The car will turn over just fine and start, will rev to about 1200 rpm and immediately...

    My 2005 X5 (E53) failed SMOG test recently with O2 sensor not ready. Although I had a battery change, that was over 3,000 miles ago. I've performed the drive cycle four times (using various procedures found on the Internet). I'm starting to suspect bad O2 sensors. However, there's no check...

    Hi, So I just finished replacing the locking mechanism on the driver door on my 2002 E53 3.0L Diesel. The battery has been unplugged for about a week while doing this. Now the central locking system is not working. I can lock the car with the key in the door and open the boot using the button...
  19. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My 2001 e53 clicks one time when I try and start it and that’s all. When I try and jump it it will start but not stay running. I’m just not sure exactly what to check, and or why this would be happening. My battery is good, I don’t think it’s my alternator. I’m thinking it’s my starter or my...

    I have a 2002 E53 3.0i and I was driving and sudden my lower door speakers quit working. I’m only getting sound from my tweeters in the dash and the small speakers in the doors (upper). They don’t play any sound at all and I have no bass. If I tap the door panel the one in it will sometimes play...
