    Hi, YEAR = 1996 ENGINE = M52 E39 520i in the last few days I noticed abnormal idle rpm "hang around" 1500 and higher, and then slowly would come to normal idle if I tapped the throttle. That made me curious to look if the throttle cable was getting stuck from the cold/dirt friction. I...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Dear friends, My E90 (diesel, automatic transsmision, 220k km) is mapped (bought it without knowing this) and since I have it, the upshifting is kind of jerky (the shift time is around 2 seconds) but only at high RPM (>2800-3000) and usually from 4->5 and from 5->6. In semi-automatic mode it...

  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hola Bimmerfest, Every now and then when I am feeling frisky and I get on the accelerator I can smell a faint odor of...I don't know what, not exactly oil, not tranny fluid, not coolant or brake or rubber or steering fluid, I have never smelled anything like this. I always check my garage floor...
