    Hi all, So I made a video about a part that can fail over time; a plastic part that is fitted to the N52, N54 and N55 engine. Since most E90’s have these engines, I thought it would be relevant to post here. I replaced the part on my N55 engine. Hope this helps some of you and let me know if...

    Can anyone help identify the highlighted section in between the spark plug wells. There is some debris in there (a stone, tried vacuuming but did not budge) and want to know whether the highlighted area opens under any circumstances. Thanks

    Hey guys, I could really use some help driving down the freeway at very high speeds. Having some fun all of a sudden the car pulls in towards the center of the freeway and the front wheels start to speed wobble back-and-forth violently forcing me to save it and slow down. obviously, I’m pulling...

    I have a 2016 435i hardtop convertible F33 N55. I have been able to code the easy entry/exit for the seat movement, but, have not figured out how to do the steering wheel movement. In some older posts related to other models and not using BimmerCode, I have seen these combinations of...

    Alright so i'm having some T case issues usually after a pull even a small one or even going over a bump. The chassis stabilization light and abs light come on. They go away after turning the car off and on again. They don't come on as easy in sport plus and with dsc disabled fully by holding...

    Hey I bought a new 2011 535xi and I can't get it registered because there's this one (and only one) code which kicks on the check engine light, P112F Now I read that it could somehow be a vacuum leak but how would be the best way of testing/finding that? (How would I do it and where can I find...

    Hi everyone, I am a high school student with interest in cars and computer science. My parents have a 2012 528i and that is how I got into BMWs. I started reading a lot about the more powerful motors that make good platforms for performance mods and found that it took quite a bit of time to...
  11. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Ive had this whistle for a few months, and replaced the PCV valve a few weeks ago, because that was the only diagnosis I could find online. I had done the flame test and it indeed was sucking in, and post repair it does not suck in anymore. I understand this to be normal behavior. However...

    Hey folks, I’m facing the following issue: Low fuel pressure @ idle 98 psi High fuel pressure in rail @ 102 psi @WOT reading 260psi and power reduced warning comes on. Vehicle idles fine. 98psi @ idle shows a good value for lpfp. Installed a manual gauge to rail and confirmed the pressure...

    Hello, i recently changed my valve cover due to a burning oil smell through the cabin, after i put on the new cover i noticed on startup and after running for a few seconds there is a faint white smoke from the passenger side under the hood. my guess so far is that oil couldve leaked onto the...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all. I've recently been consuming a lot of oil in my 2012 e92 n55. I've had the low oil light come on twice now, about once a month or ~1k miles apart prompting me to add 1 qt of oil. I also have a very slight rough idle/vibration in the car that comes and goes when the engine is all warmed...
  15. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I had a spun bearing on my n55 x5 2012 at 136k after an oil change (20miles after) the crankshaft was damaged i ordered a new engine and it arrived last week getting ready to put it back together but having a hard time finding the torque specs for valve turbo intake oil pan etc etc the block...
  16. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    UPDATE: I figured out what was causing it, falmpalm the camshaft sensor wasn't plugged in and I also got the misfire codes fixed after changing the 2 coils and the car runs amazing, I'm probably going to change all the other coils as well since they should've been changed a bit ago. Hi Guys...
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I replaced my belt tensioner about 5K ago and didn't notice anything wrong. Now the engine seems to vibrate a bit and the tensioner does move a little bit. How much should the tensioner move on idle ?

    I just recently bought a bmw 335i 2013 e92 from Copart that says run and drive. But once I received it, it only had power but didn’t start. So my dumbass tried to jump it from the battery with a charge pack, and after few tries all the power went off. It has no interior lights or nothing turns...
  19. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I bought an F33 recently for a massive discount because it had a light and a warning in the instrument cluster. Says “chassis stabilization drive moderately”. The dealership I bought it from said it could be anything from a transfer case, to a random sensor, so I took it to a trusted mechanic...
  20. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hello, I drive a 2014 X5 35i. Last week I was driving my car down the highway in sport mode at 80 MPH, my RPM was at 3000 RPM when I heard two loud bangs come from the engine. I immediately pulled over on the shoulder to see what happened, I saw there was a huge oil leak coming from the...
