    I have a 98 323is and I know they exist or exited but I’m looking for a tuner chip for my e36 that deletes the secondary air pump and tunes for no cats. Sadly with all this epa stuff I can’t find them for sale anymore wondering if anyone has one they would be willing to let go or knows where I...

    Hey guys, i have a ‘97 523i M52B25, single vanos, basically the same engine as in 528i just a smaller displacement, so the problem is whenever i start the car and it’s cold outside i get this awful rattle for like 2-3 seconds, the colder it is the longer it rattles, but it’s like for a few...

  4. General BMW Questions
    My alternator started screeching badly over a period of 3 weeks. The vehicle would not start a few days ago (potentially parasitic drain from the rectifier). I was mindless enough to initially partially detach the positive on the alternator while the battery was still attached (3am in the...
  5. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    A little bit over a year ago, I started engine swapping my manual 1997 318i. I picked up an automatic 1998 328i, and swapped my 5spd trans onto it and put in in the chassis. I also purchased a K+DCAN Cable from eBay to plug into the 20pin under the hood for ews rolling code alignment. I now have...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello people! I am looking into buying an E36 325i or 328i to fool around, and need some information about what to look out for and possible problems. I know these have pretty solid engines (M50 & M52), hence why I am just considering such models. Plenty of power, easy to work on and repair...
  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi fellow members, I rarely ask for help with my car as usually I know what's wrong with it, but this time I am baffled. I have a 1997 E36 20i Convertible with the M52B20 engine in very nice condition, but it's done 290k kilometres. We went on a long journey (from Bari, Italy back home to...
  8. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hey fellow owners, Watch the problem as it occurs on this video: LINK VIDEO My problem is as follows: When the engine comes up to normal temperature its starts revving on its own between 1600-2600 rpm, pulsating. It's stuck like this for several minutes, sometimes 15 min. Once in a while it...
  9. Parting Out
    $850 or make an offer that works for you. I want to move this along. Oil Changed every 3000 miles. 210 compression in each cylinder. Recently removed from a very clean 1999 328is CA car that spent the last 10 years being gently driven by a BMWCCA club member's mom. I have the maintenance...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Im going to start this off by stating that I've never boosted a car before so most of this is new to me. This is also my first BMW, owned it for approximately 9 months. OBD2 97' 328is. It's my only car and obviously my daily driver / Auto X car / pride and joy, so id like to do this as reliably...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey bros, As the topic says I have failure with CPS-Crank sensor. Problem started few months ago, when my car started running like crap. I did diagnosis for it and it showed crank and cam sensor failure. I changed both and car fixed, it started running smoothly. But same evening I fixed...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 323is. I am struggling trying to find out how to plug up the wiring harness. I bought an engine with nonthing on it. So I have to put the alternator, brackets, intake manifold, throttle body, all of that on the engine. Now, I had labeled all of the wires to where they needed to go. It's...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So i've looked everywhere and i finally decided to take it forums. Im looking for an 1998 e36 manual engine harness OBD2 I've found 2 but they're crazy priced at $900/$1200 and used, such a damn scam. I would be forever grateful if someone has one and willing to sell or if anyone knows where i...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi there, I have this 1999 323i station wagon that I am rebuilding engine for. It has 285000 miles on it, the engine was running fine and would probably last well beyond 300000 miles but this sneaky crack in cylinder head finally happened and I had to tear it apart. So I decided to go through...

    328is M52 engine with S50 cams. Is it doable, is it worth it, and what all is ACTUALLY needed? Ive read a ton of threads about fitment, yes, no, buy schrick. Im hoping to get a good, clear answer that people can actually USE. From what im seeing, M52 trays will work with S50 cams. But there...

    i have a 2001 525i and it runs good but occasionally i get lean codes for bank 1 and 2. i have looked high and low and cannot find where a leak may be coming from. the intake boot is ok. the hoses are all plugged in and not cracked. i did recently take apart the oil separator system to replace...
  20. 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...
