  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Just a question. I have an F11 520d vin: WBAMX12050C789192 I was just wondering if the intake manifold seal carrier (the thing that clips onto the bottom of the manifold and holds the swirl flaps) has replaceable rubber seals like the old n47, or if its just one whole gasket? If that makes...

    Hi folks, taking apart my 2000 323ci M52tu and i've got this little vacuum sensor that i'm not sure what to look up to see where it leads/what it's function is. I learn by doing and ive been having vacuum leak codes from before i took it apart (it ran rough when i bought it). I'm wondering if...
  3. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hi there, just went to see a 740Li from 2010 with 76k km = 47k miles. Noticed the air intake is brittle and air can come in, is this normal wear and tear? Will it affect performance? If ok, could share more pics, noticed the exhaust at back under the car rusting. The fog lights glass all...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2007 530i. I noticed a coolant leak so I pressure tested the tubes but they were all good. I assumed that it has to be a head gasket leak but after learning more about cars I am thinking it could potentially be a leak with the intake manifold. I am getting error codes for a misfire in...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    First Time Poster in crisis here, Today on the road my car gave me a coolant level low sign and within minutes told me my engine was overheated. I immediately stopped and had this brought to a repair shop. After discussing on the phone, the mechanic is telling me that due to the design of the...
  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey what's up, I'm new on here. Just finished putting my intake manifold back in place after changing some vacuum lines and I seen to have missed a connector somewhere and can't figure out where it goes. Just want to see if anyone can point me in the right direction before I pull the manifold...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    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...
  11. 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...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    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
  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    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...

  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am hearing a perculating noise...sounds like oil bubbling in the intake manifold? What could this be?
  20. 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...
