For the past few months I have been chasing cylinder 5 misfire. Horrible gas mileage. Around 15-16 mpg.
I only use Shell 93 or Mobil1 93. Once a month I use fuel injector cleaner by techron or similar. ( liqui molly)
Changed spark plugs, coils, injectors and no help.
Changed the valve...
I have a 2009 BMW X5 30i X drive with the N52B30 motor. The vehicle has 130K on it, with a motor swap just done with about 88K on it.
It has been running great and I have been daily driving for about a week now, put about 150 miles since the motor swap.

Can anyone fill me in on the details of the swap? I'm talking about silver cover on both engines, both pre-lci. Do they both use the Siemens MSV-70, are there any hardware differences, apart from the revised piston rings? Is there anything that needs to be done or is it plug and play? Thank you.
Hey guys! I'm looking to get a 528i f10 with 60-70k miles and keep it for 3-4 years.
The question is whether i should get a 3.0 I6 NA N52 one or a 2.0 Turbo N20?
What would you suggest in terms of long term reliability/maintenance and what is real world mpg of both?
Id like to hear owners...
Now that I am looking for a complete used engine to go into an 07 x3 n52 with a broken timing chain, the issue of CA emissions comes up and I hope someone here knows the answer. I have been looking at engines and versions of the n52 engine. I have a california car with a sticker that says it...
