    Recently noticed that she is herking and jerking going from first to second or back from send to first gear. I'm guessing it's the air filter. I park outside and with all this pollen this year, maybe that's it? My other guess is the fuel line needs to be flushed. I'd probably do both if it...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Good or bad Give or take I replaced them anyway, some say 40k interval but I think that is way too long esp on a 12 year old car. I drive her hard maybe once or twice a month. Meaning: doing over 120mph for a couple minutes. Didn't having any issues I just felt like changing them since it's...

    My wife's 535xi was running terrible, and prior to that she mentioned some message about low battery. However the car ran perfect, started without hesitation, so was not concerned about it. But two weeks later, car ran terrible, chugging like a diesel if you really pushed it. I had someone put...

    Hey guys, we've come to a dead end before bringing my 2008 328i to our mechanic. When we changed my oil in November 2015 my car misfires getting onto the highway, brought it back to the mechanic and he read the code as a misfire on cyl #1 & #3, erased the code and test drove it.. all was fine...

    I've always used NGK BKR6EQUP 3199 plugs on my e39 and never had a problem... I'm wondering would it be fine to use the same type plugs on my e60 ? according to realoem, there were ENDED and replaced with part # 12120037607 (BMW)

    Hello BMW world, I have a 2008 335xi 93K miles and I have recently moved from Texas to Philadelphia and needless to say my car is definitely reacting to the climate change.

    So as you probably already know that this car has a 3.0L V8. After two days of owning the vehicle, the engine started to have zero performance and idle rough. Idle rough in the sense that the entire car is shaking. So I figured it might be spark plugs. When I went to replace the spark plugs, I...
