  1. 5 Series
    Hello, I found a 2005 BMW 545i with a 6 speed manual with 84,000 miles and a clean title. If It is in decent condition and a certified mechanic checks it out all is good and I could get it for a good price would this be a good car now and in the future ?
  2. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    2005 X5 w/4.4l N62 engine I had an issue with oil loss due to the alternator bracket gasket giving out. That has been repaired, but the engine was running very rough. Codes pointed at VANOS so we cleaned the VANOS solenoids, which improved it quite a bit, but not enough to make it drivable. So...

    My boyfriend just used the BimmerFix Stent to fix a weep hole leak that we had in our 2005 545i. While doing so, he removed the bolts in the crankshaft pulley and took it off it's alignment so that he could reach all of the bolts he needed on the water pump. The installation video said not to...

    Well I was driving home from lunch with a friend when suddenly there was a loud bang, then a grinding noise. When I pulled over it was idling very rough, like car was shaking. Trans fault popped up, then check engine light. Engine oil was changed less than a month ago, so was coolant. Valve...
  5. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello, this might be a long shot. I replaced my valve cover gaskets and one upper timing cover gasket. I watched a few videos and I'm also very mechanically inclined so I figured it wouldn't be too difficult. I was wrong. First I'll start of with when I pulled the valvetronic motors out they...

    I have a 2008 E60 550i, the a/c suddenly stopped working, I take a look at the ac compressor and its missing the belt, I go to turn the pulley and it wont move at all, after doing some research I figured it could be the ac compressor pulley, I have a local junk yard near me with a 2007 545i N62...

    Using the AGA tool. Did bank 2 first and without issue. Working the rear intake valve under the “cage” on cylinder 2, the spring popped a bit as I was removing the lifter. It was just enough to shoot one of the keepers into another realm. I cant find it, I’ve stuck the magnet into every corner...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone point me in the right direction on this issue? My N62 has developed a whine/drone that seems to be coming from the passenger side. I removed the main accessory belt and the noise was still present. I didn't want to remove the AC belt because it is a stretch belt, but the noise does...
  9. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I recently DIY'd the alternator bracket gasket as well as Bank 2 (Cyl. 5-8) timing cover and valve cover gaskets. Now, after driving it about 40 miles with no major issues, I am getting several errors: The low oil pressure light will flash on and off after a few minutes of driving at highway...

    Hi - I am replacing the alternator bracket gasket on a 2004 645 Ci. I have completed everything and the bracket/engine mount bracket are reinstalled. I am having difficulty dropping the engine back down on the mounts. It seems since I have the car on jack stands and the engine suspended, the...
  11. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    I tried to start this thread a couple of days ago as my first bimmerfest post, but it said something about awaiting moderator approval and hasn't appeared. Some of my thought process is posted in various replies to others on this board. I'm a newbie to BMWs but no stranger to engine...

  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    The car was running fine except for what I thought might be a leaky injector due to a slightly rough idle and non-oil smoke and a few error codes related to that. I took the injectors out and had them ultrasonically cleaned, replaced the filterbaskets and seals on the injectors, and had the...

    Doing spark plugs and coils & oil change tomorrow along with installing a new MAF, but MAF hasn't come in the mail yet. I was going to reset adaptions after the tune up, and since I never did this before even after its been tuned, Im looking forwarded for some new power (big difference) since...
  18. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I have coolant coming from the rear weep hole. I assumed from every post on every forum that said coolant was coming from the transfer pipe under the valley cover, and purchased the pipe kit from URO. I just removed the valley cover and cut out the old pipe, only to discover that there is...
