    Good day to you all, I am the proud (but a bit sad) owner of a 2007 BMW 525i with a N52 engine. I bought it used (my first car) with a couple of minor issues but so far it has carried me 40,000+ miles. Back in February, I repaired a small leak coming from the coolant thermostat. A month later...

    My first post, I have searched forum carefully but didn't find answers. I'm about to take delivery of 2012 520i - car has a puff of white smoke on cold start and very rough idling. On pull off, transition from off throttle to super gentle touch on the accelerator, engine revs drop down (it...

    Hey guys - This is an exact copy and paste of my post on reddit.com/r/BMW. I'm looking for some serious advice. Disclaimer: Assume that I am car-illiterate. Damn close to it. A little background: 2004 330xi, about 104k miles, and just had a lot of work done to it. About a month ago, my SES...

    Hello all, Okay so I have a 92 325i. When I crank it up from a cold start, it starts up quickly and holds a smooth idle and will go back to idling perfectly even after reving it pretty high - all that will hold true when its in neutral with the parking break on and its not going anywhere. But...

    Try to figure this one out. Now that it is getting cold, my car is getting rather grumpy. One issue is the heater. When I am idling it doesn't blow hot air. I am assuming that this is just a coolant issue and I need to top it off. What is more strange to me is that the outside temperature...

    I have a 2003 325i BMW. Recently, it started to idle very roughly. When placing the care in reverse the engine idles up and down in short intervals. Sometimes, it even shuts off on me. This also happens sometimes while stopped in traffic. I have replaced the DISA, fuel filter, ignition coils...
  7. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    All, My 533i is idling rough. After the car heats up, the engine revvs from about 800RPM to about 1800RPM, then cuts off. Above 2500RPM, the car revvs just fine, but the car sputters below 2000RPM, even in gear. My friends and I are completely stumped on this one. We have replaced the...

    As "winter" approaches here in Melbourne I am starting to think of my next major DIY. I have noticed a slight leak at my OFHG so I've been researching that a bit and wondering what else I could do while "down there". I have read that the CCV is much easier to replace once everything is out for...

  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    When i start my car, it idles up and down kind of like if you were saying "wow" and holding the last "w" longer and kept doing this over and over. After i drive it for a bit then it doesnt repeat until i start it up again. Any idea what this could be? It doesnt almost die or anything but it...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    so i took my 528i today to get the camshaft sensor changed because that was the code i was getting on the scanner. when i went to go pick it up i thought it was going to be all fixed but it seemed that the problem got worse after changing the camshaft. they changed to intake camshaft but not the...
