  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    All, 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...
  2. General BMW Questions
    1998 E38 740i I rebuilt my heater valve which is a common design in many BMW’s built before and after 2000. Broke a part and had to wait for the delivery. Went back to my workbench to put it together. Really straight forward. But I have these two little plastic cylinders are obviously within...

    Health valve assembly E38 740i I have a rebuild kit. Had it apart as I wrangled some more difficult pieces. I am putting it together and the two plastic cylinder pieces in the picture between the two orange handles picks, I thought they sat inside the larger cylinders in the 2nd pic. The...

  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Greetings, I underwent a procedure to rebuild the Vanos on my M54b30, seals needle bearings and anti rattle rings were replaced. All went surprisingly well. It came to me putting it all back together, I placed the Vanos unit onto the front of the block and installed the first Alan screw into...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So today I bought my first E90. It's a 2008 328i wagon that cosmetically is decent. The engines a different story. I paid $900 for it so I didn't have high expectations for the internals and am fine with replacing the engine and transmission. It has the infamous oil filter mount leak that made...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey y’all. I am new to this form and here to find out some information. Let me tell you about my story. I was looking a e46 (330i or 330ci) and found this very mint 330i. I live in Clermont and it was in Miami, 4+ hour drive. My dad and I thought it was worth getting it even though I do not have...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all (please read) Our story begins 5 months ago when i bought my X3 3.0 Xdrive (M54) for $2500. I knew it had a bad CSB and u joint but the engine ran great aside from EVAP codes and lean bank codes (vacuum leaks that were soon fixed). I replaced the staked in ujoint, CSB, and guibo for a...
  9. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys, I am new to this forum so hope it helps me out with my new project! I removed the steering rack from my car due to a severe leak. I purchased a seal kit for it and I am currently trying to disassemble it. I have been following the steps from a Classic Bimmer Bits publication...

  12. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    So the car has a hard shift from 3-4 and then throws the dreaded 4F89 code. The transmission adapter seal has been replaced, followed by a transmission rebuild (clutch packs were not replaced because those looked good), followed by the mechatronic unit and solenoids. My mechanic has no other...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Learn from my error - Several years ago, I took my e53 X5 (130K) to a local transmission shop in NJ (Passaic Cty Transmission) who said they could get me a rebuilt one for $2,500. Total bait/switch. After 10 days, could not get one. Stupidly, I let them rebuilt it. It failed TWICE in a year...

Basically im wondering if i can swap this transmission from the 523 into the 528? from what i gather they possibly both...
