Hello, it's been a while!
After not owning a BMW for a couple of years there's finally one in the household.
I just bought a -12 318d for my partner, which the previous owner claimed had just had its DPF replaced. I'm either incredibly unlucky or more probably fooled.
After just a few...
So I was changing my cabin air filter and found what looks like some sort of destroyed filter or grill. Not sure exactly where it came from, but it fell out with the filter once I took it out. The filter was fine with no damage, so not really sure where all the stuff came from. Not...
Firstly I would like to say I am very new to this page so apologies in advance if there is already a similar thread.
I have just bought my 2010 bmw 320d Auto. This is the first automatic i have owned so i am a little rusty with how things should be.
Firstly, when i am at low revs...

I can hear the pump priming and had a buddy watch the open fuel delivery line while I primed the fuel pump and he said it sprayed out with good pressure. I already replaced the filter with attached pressure gauge along with all the hoses, but still nothing in the...
I posted this on the 3 series forum. Yesterday when I was driving, I noticed the dreaded Check Engine Light came on. So I drove to an indy BMW shop I usually took my car to have it diagnose. He attached the diagnostic tool to read the code. He didin't show me the code but he said he needs more...

Vehicle: 2007 M6 (E63)
A couple of questions related to the transmission:
1. Is there a transmission filter that can be changed whenever the transmission fluid is changed, and
2. How many drain plugs are there for the transmission reservoir?
There is a transmission oil strainer that retails...
actually i have the "old" air intake system of this car:
i would like to change the air intake system to put in a pipercross or K&N filter system.
as i can see, there is no Plug&Play for this, right?
may somebody did a perfection for this? ;-)

I can take the blame for the first oil filter not seating properly and twisting up (which caused a whole host of problems I can't get into right now), but I put a new filter in and it also twisted up. (driving 5 miles).
So I took out the filter...

I bought an oil filter housing from an M50 engine (the one with the metal cap as opposed the plastic one that comes as standard).

These past couple months I've been having issues with my 328ci (manual transmission). It started off with my car working perfectly fine until one day completely turning off on me out of no where. The car felt fine, it ran and sounded perfect besides it randomly turning off. Some days it would...

I got into my car today and the air is not working. The fan is running. I hear it respond when I change the speed settings. Cold air is coming out of the dash, but it is very weak out of the vents. I tried changing from top to middle to bottom vents. I also closed some vents and...
Hey, unusual question here. While tracking down parts for a tranny fluid and filter change I came across a weird problem. My VIN# indicates my 2005 x5 4.4i has a ZF 6HP26Z transmission. However, the tag on the tranny shows it's a ZF 6HP26X. I have received some different answers for this. 1 bmw...
I would like to do some summer cleaning of my car, and wanted to replace everything at once. But when I was looking for original parts, I found two types of oil filters, both for e46 2003 make, and I was just wondering what is the difference between these two:
So, as I don't yet commute, many issues are still being discovered. We were driving through town and hit a couple stoplights, resulting in a near overheating scenario (touching red). After waiting for it to cool, driving home while maintaining 40 mph, my car pulsed HARD 3 times. It was like...

We recently purchased a 2003 X5 4.4. I decided to change the oil the other day. Got the correct OEM filter, gasket, crush ring, 9 quarts of 5W30 synthetic. Manual calls for 8.5 if I recall...
