  1. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    HI all, I have one E81 with the N43B20. Already had to overhaul this regarding timing chain, crankshaft bearings, new cylinder block, etc. Currently still open is the problem with oil pressure. Once the oil temperature rises above 105°C a stop at the traffic lights will most of the time bring...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, my e90 has some serious problems I've been trying to fix for months now. IF YOU WANT TO SKIP DIRECTLY TO MY QUESTION YOU CAN GO DIRECTLY TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH The car throws no codes other than a VERY rare "DME MIXTURE CONTROL" code. The car stumbles, cuts off, has really choppy...

    Stock 2001 325i 5spd Manual I can hear the pump priming and had a buddy watch the open fuel delivery line while I primed the fuel pump and he said it sprayed out with good pressure. I already replaced the filter with attached pressure gauge along with all the hoses, but still nothing in the...
  4. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    After a few days and some work I have figured out that my 97 1.9 Roadster isn't starting because of my fuel tank pressure sensor not being plugged in. Does anyone have any info or links that can point me in the right direction to finding where that sensor is located and where that pesky...

    So, I'm not new to car stereo installs, etc. - I'm 54 years old and I've done many, many, many of them over the years, both for myself and others. That said... I am putting a custom subwoofer in my trunk. I am concerned (a little, anyway) that the pressure from the sub will cause...
  6. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Rotated my tires on the X1 today and wondered about something. Maybe someone on Bimmerfest has experience with this. I swapped the front tires to the rear and rear to the front. My question is - How does the TPM system know where the individual wheels are located? Or do they even need to...
  7. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    2014 BMW X1 Ist owner - straight from factory in Germany I know how to reset the TMP after I've adjusted the pressure and if I haven't adjusted the pressure and want to dismiss (for a second) the alert displayed in the cockpit, via the Steering column stalk, left. Question -- Is there any way...

    318D low turbo pressure Hi guys. I have an e90lci 318D, N47N, from december 2010. And I really think its missing some power. It doesnt fell like it produces the 143hp its supposed too. When driving I fell the turbo step in at around 1700-1800rpm and then the acceleration flattens at around...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I recently replaced the transmission solenoids in my 2006 325xi with 350k miles. The adaptation values have drastically changed from what they were before the solenoids were replaced and appear to be more similar to each other than before. The adaptations stopped changing around 1500 miles...
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey! I have been having tire pressure problems for a few weeks now. After going to fill my tires up a few times and resetting the system each time I haven't had any problems. This last time I finally noticed I had a small leak in one of the tires. I got fix a flat for a temp fix and followed...
  11. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey guys, I have a new issue with the my x5 35d 2009, I have the check engine light come on with the code p0087. Sometimes it puts me into limp mode without really being in it because I can still rev up to 4000rpm, and some other times, it gives a "bang" and the car shuts down drastically. I...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've just bought a set of braided hoses to fit at the same time as discs and pads since the hoses are just as old as the car but I couldn't find the tightening torques. I can see just looking at them that it would be easy to over tighten them and have leaky threads, and just as easy to leave...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, new to this forum... I've had my bmw 318i sport 2004 for 2 days now and all was good until tonight. Basically i had been driving for roughly 30 mins and i noticed my re oil light and battery light were on so i stopped and swathed the engine off. I then restarted it and they had gone...
  14. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi, I am getting a second set of wheels and OEM TPMS sensors for my 2015 550ix. Is there a special learn procedure to activate the new sensors? Can it be done via iDrive?
  15. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Quick stupid thread... Still more dreaming and planning.. :rolleyes: So, I want to run an oil cooler, which with the turbo, would make things all messy with oil hoses everywhere. I could do things traditionally and run the turbo out of the oil pressure sensor (t fitting) ending up in the oil pan...
  16. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    How do you make sure the tire PSI is really 32? do you have read off from the pressure stick or the TPM from iDrive? which one is more accurate? Thanks guys!
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    We have recently serviced an N54 unit due to both turbine wastegates having developing a rattle. Although the internal components appeared to be in fair shape, both turbos had an audible rattling noise upon activation of the vacuum actuated wastegates. With this becoming a common issue with the...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    This morning my iDrive came up with low right rear tire pressure. I checked the tire pressure and it was exactly where I wanted it to be. I tried to reset my TPM, as I have in the past, but the right rear tire came up as low pressure once again. As soon as I press reset the noise would ding and...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Can someone explain the flow through the expansion tank so-called "overfow" hose? I open this thread simply to discuss the flow of air & fluid in the so-called "overflow" or "bypass" hose connecting the BMW E39 expansion tank and radiator. Deep into the GAS 1.2-bar cap discussion, in post #84...
