  1. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The vehicle is a 2002 330ci automatic with 130000 original miles. The car came from an auction so I don't have any previous information. The car runs rough (has a misfire) and CEL. I plug in my scanner and after the automatic detection process tells me my specific model, it starts to connect...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I am new here and have turned to this forum for help after scouring the Internet. I have a 2004 545i manual. After having issues, my mechanic informed me that I would need either a timing chain overhaul (roughly $3500) or an engine replacement (again $3500). A friend of mine has a wrecked...
  3. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So the story goes... I bought my first e30, an '87 325is in May for a good deal. It had minor front end damage and a blown motor. After working hard all summer I managed to put a new m20 motor in and after a lot of set backs this week finally got it started and even drove it down the street. I...

The previous owner said that it has a blown motor because "where the heads are, the car would leak tons of coolant like there were cracked heads or block." I bought the complete rolling car with...

  8. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I own a 1986 325 no "e" or "i". I recently drove through a flood and killed my motor. I plan on on putting the m30 3.5liter e24 motor from a older model 635 in. The motor i have now only goes up to 5000 rpms and I dont want to put a beastly motor in just to be restricted by my current computer...
