    So there I am, looking for a leak on a 318D I’ve had 2 weeks, when I notice light coming through my wheel arch. Can anyone tell me what’s supposed to be attached to my passenger side wheel arch in the engine bay?

    I have an X3 E83 M54. A few months back, I realized that there was smoke coming out from the vent and I thought it was just an one time event because it did not happen for a few days. The second time it happened, I tried to figure out where the smoke was coming from and it seems that its coming...

    I don't mind doing my car work myself, even though I haven't done it before. But, it would be way easier if I had the diagram of the system. Do you know where I can find the engine bay diagram for my 2015 428i SULEV?

    I'm new to the forum and recently purchase a used x5 which needed an engine. I swapped the current engine, an 01 x5 3.0 AWD with an 01 330ci 3.0 front wheel drive engine. The engine starts, runs and idles fine. The transmission gear selector and linkage appears to be connected properly but the...

    My car's hose broke, spread coolant in the engine bay. I also added oil without using a funnel and it spill on the side. I want to remove and clean them. How do you guys do it? Thank you.

    Changed out the spark plugs on my 2008 328i because I wasn't sure when the previous owner last had them replaced. I attached two pictures and would like to know if I just wasted my time and money on new ones or if it was a good call to change them out. Either way, it was a fun experience and I...

    I have a 2011 335i coupe. I want to wash the engine bay. Is it safe to just spray the engine off with a hose, will I damage anything, is there anything I should be careful with? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

  12. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Bought a '98 740iL and begun the process of a major tune up. As I begin to remove the wiring from the injectors, spark plug coils, and the other accessories. I begin to ponder, is this really necessary? All of these boxes, tubes, and miles of wire? I assume the tubes, box, and such are to...

  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Looked at a few threads, most were somewhat dated and/or not specific to E70. I love a spotlessly clean engine bay but I am reluctant to wash it for fear of electrical issues. (No such fears when it comes to cleaning rims - they see water all the time!) Here are my specific questions: What...
