  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    BMW 2011 E90 N55 335i AT Gasket with part number 11617588624 shows on Real OEM as part #3 on following diagram but after removing intake manifold I don't see anywhere it would go. Has anyone used this part and can describe where it goes...
  2. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    So I've removed all the nuts holding it to the engine and also the fuel rail, DISA valve (unnecessary, I know), Idle Control Valve, Throttle Body boot and that hidden nut on the bracket that's under the throttle body but there is still something that seems to be holding on to the manifold as it...

    Hi guys, I have a 2012 x5 35d e70 - glow plug code came up and will get that taken care of. Just wanting to get the intake manifold swirl flap delete at the same time while having to remove the intake manifold anyways. 2 questions come to mind prior to removing intake manifold: 1- what is...
  4. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hello! I am Alexander and I am from Austria. This is my first post and I hope I post it in the right section of the forum. I am a little bit new to winkfp so I need help please. I have an 325i N53 and we will change the intake manifold to the one from the 330i. Now I should flash the 330i...

    So I recently had to replace a knock sensor on my 95 318is. In the process, I found that there was a missing bolt and whoever messed with the manifold last broke the bolt attached to the lower manifold, which probably explains the air leak code I've been reading. So, after deciding that it would...
  6. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I was replacing my thermostat and when re-installing everything, I forgot where this blue and black hose goes to. It's attached to a (what looks like) something electronic and it sits on the back left portion of the intake manifold. It looks like a vacuum hose and I've looked every where...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm doing the 3-stage intake manifold swap for my 328i. I'm about to remove the old manifold, and I need to disconnect this throttle body sensor. Tutorials indicate to "push the tab and pull out" but I can't see any tab and it won't disconnect. Tried basically everything without breaking it...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I recently purchased a 2001 BMW 540i with 171k and was aware of some problems but they have seemed to have been getting worse. Initially the car only smoked for a few seconds on start up, and you could see some minor smoking from the passenger side valve cover gasket. When i first checked the...

    I replaced the CCV - when I removed the intake manifold I discovered a rubber grommet laying on top of my valley pan. Not sure where it goes at this time. If this part looks familiar please let me know. Thanks

    Hello all, New to this site and thank you in advance, the issue I'm having is I had a starter going bad so I decided to change it for the second time in a 11 months under warranty so no issue there, the first time I changed it was the learning curve and to my surprise all was good took some...

    I am hearing a perculating noise...sounds like oil bubbling in the intake manifold? What could this be?
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I noticed in intake ports 1,5,8 only one valve has carbon deposits the other valve next to it is clean. The rest of the ports are clean. I am not experiencing smoke out of the exhaust so it can't be bad valve seals. Hopefully. Could it be that injector is not spraying correctly? Im just throwing...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Alright, so I have a 97 328is, M52 engine, and I recently had a coolant hose break which required me to remove the intake manifold and fuel rail to access the broken hose. So I took everything out, replaced the hose, and put everything back together. When I tried to start the engine, it wouldn't...
  15. 7 Series DIY
    Hi, I have a 2002 745i - the only car in the world that combines power, grace, elegance, and beauty - that is approaching 100,000 and as such it's due for some maintenance. While I was perusing the engine bay I noticed coolant on either side of the forward part of the intake manifold - hidden...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Tonight I thought I'd change out the CVV on my 2001 540i. Wouldn't you know the very last bolt got stripped (I'll be swapping those T30s for hex heads, thanks to another post I read). **So now I have to pull the intake manifold to complete the CVV job. What advice do you all have for me...
  17. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, Recently the heater inlet pipe busted on my e46 325i 2001. Unfortunately the only way to reach there was by removing intake manifold. Now I see that intake manifold has all those carbon soot and oil spill (dried) all the way. I used a light to see that and actually when i touched a paper...

    1997 E39 540i 6spd (M62B44) Turned my key on this morning, and Boom. Backfire through the intake. I have not removed the intake manifold yet to inspect it for damage (had to leave for work). I did see that the backfire exploded my CCV into pieces. I replaced this CCV about a year ago after...

    Hey guys. I recently bought a 2003 540i M sport. God I love this car. But alas I have a problem. Basically upon high load (Accelerating from a stop with aggressive RPM's or while driving up a steep hill) I first hear a slapping noise emanating from the engine bay and then a plume (and I...

    hi folks. I have just completed a 2400 mi trip and have noted wildly varying mileage on my 2003 325i stick shift . I have historically achieved 35 mpg (US gal) on the freeway, but this trip it went from that to 27 or so in a somewhat random manner (according to the average on the digital...
