    I've been working on my 2000 540i for a while now, recently started researching the M62 vanos reliability. I understand the unit in this engine isn't as failure prone as some however I'd like to make sure it's working order before reassembling the engine. The common failure point in this...

    I’ve got a 2002 540i with the M62 with 92k miles on it. A while ago, when I first got it, it threw a code for a malfunctioning camshaft position sensor on bank one intake, which went away after a few days for some reason. Within the past year or so, it’s started to get a really rough idle and...

    So I'm in the process of the M62tu chain and guide service. I was prepared for this job, I bought the car as a project just as the chains began to rattle on cold start, after warming up the engine ran smooth. I haven't replaced any chains/guides yet but while trying to set the crank at TDC I...

    Hello all, I have a 01 540i, I recently diagnosed a few issues with the car, thanks to you guys I was able to fix them. I ran into some other problems now, I have been getting a code "activation, tank venting valve" on my OBD-II. I am not sure where the valve is located on an M62tu, I couldn't...
  5. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 99 Z3 Roadster with a 2.5 and a 5 speed. I stole the 4.4 out of my 2001 740i and bought an e34 V8 5 speed to mate to it. I have upgraded rotors/pads and bought a conversion kit to fit the motor in the Z3. I plan on getting fully adjustable coilovers (planning on megan racing) walboro...

  7. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hello, I am new to this forum and am seeking some advice. I am in the process of renewing the timing chains and chain guides and have found something not covered in any posts I have seen. The hole in the flywheel for inserting the locking pin is not visible anywhere near the TDC mark on 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...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    2001 X5 4.4l After using the vanos timing kit M62TU, setting the timing. I removed the jigs in the front and when I removed the block in the back, the upper camshaft rotated inward maybe 1 tooth. My torque wrench does't work when locking a reversible threaded bolt (or torx bolt), so I could...

  15. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I have read so much about the timing guides and obviously my car (99 740i Sport; build date 11/17/1998) falls into that category, but I have read differing opinions about the oil pump bolts. At the moment (I have only driven it ~220 miles since buying it a month ago) the engine revs great on...
