    2002 540i M62TU 95k miles I don’t think the previous owners ever changed the oil until they gave it to me, at 85k miles. I changed it every 5k. So oil was changed once, and I was supposed to change it again today. No codes given, code reader says it’s in excellent condition :) When turning...
  3. General BMW Questions
    Hello all, I apologize for asking this question, as it has already probably been answered and I know repeat questions irritate a lot of you veteran forum users, but I couldn't find an answer even when using advanced search and being very specific. What is the standard fuel pump flow rate for...

    I’ve got a 2002 540i with 90k miles on it. Let it idle in the driveway to warm up while waiting to go somewhere, and it overheated, the needle went as far right as is possible. Has never done this before. No coolant on the ground anywhere. I opened the expansion tank, and there was no pressure...

    (First time posting to a forum) I have a 2003 540i 6 Speed that is misfiring on cylinders 1-4. I have replaced valve cover gaskets, all coils, all plugs, CCV, intake manifold gaskets (including CCV gasket, and both throttle body gaskets). I have also replaced the jet pump that sits near the back...

    I've looked this up on multiple forums and haven't been able to get ONE consistent answer to this question which I thought would've been fairly easy to find. I'm looking to make a custom exhaust for my 97 540 and I want to install an X pipe right after the O2 sensors but I want it to clamp on so...

    So I replaced the water pump on the 740. Tell tail signs were rattly noises and coolant warning light on twice Note aux pump doesn't work Anyway I've struggled to bleed the cooling system for 3 days now. What I've done is overfill the expansion bottle until coolant came out of the bleed screw...

    Hey guys, I'm just about ready to pull all my hair out. I recently picked up a super clean 2003 540i M-Sport with 89,000 miles (Auto) and it was running a little rough. I replaced the coil packs, spark plugs, crankcase vent, valve cover gaskets, vanos seals, alternator and radiator and all was...

    Does anyone on here know if a 2001 e39 has the same or similar calipers as a 1998? Also, what is the easiest way to swap the calipers?
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My e53 sounds like a jet engine or that it's supercharged, although that would be nice, it's not normal and the power isn't there. I suspect the cooling aux radiator fan to be the root cause. The fan doesn't start up with air con on but I've got voltage at the plug. The mains are 12v dc and the...

    Hey guys I have been developing a kit that is an alternative to the pricey Dinan throttle body. It uses a brand new 84mm body which bolts right up the the m62 intake manifold. It is 100% plug and play out of the box. Some fun facts: -Stock m62tu TB is 79.5mm -Dinan Upgrade is 82.5mm -This...

    Hi Everyone, New to the forums so mightn't be doing everything right, sorry! I'm considering buying a 2000 BMW 535i Manual e39. The thing about it is that the gearbox has been removed. I'm in Ireland and these gearbox's are rarer then hen's teeth. I've seen adapter plates that allow you to fit...

    So here's what I got. I have a 1997 540i. I just did water pump radiator and thermostat, because I thought the water pump had leaked come to find out it was only a hose. So I changed the hose put the new cooling equipment on and drove it for about a week and a half until the new water pump blew...

    I've been chasing a whining noise my 97 540i m62 has been making for a while. Symptom description The higher the RPM's the "faster" the "whine" sounds. The sound can be compared to a cheap remote control car sound but not so high pitched. or a Whining Transmission. At idle you cant hear it but...
