    I have an 02 e39 (540i). The torque spec for the spark plug from the service manual says:18 ft. lbs But the spark plug (Bosch) says 21 ft.lbs on it for torque. Which one is correct. Until now I was assuming that the torque will depend on the vehicle, but it looks like it depend on the park...

    Hello everyone, Car: BMW 328i 2013 Convertible I've been trying to figure out the reason for my car misfires. I've tried a few things however they come back after a couple of weeks or months. Current behavior: Misfiring when accelerating, more noticeable when going uphill. The check engine...

    2009 BMW 328i with N51 engine and 142k miles Long time reader, first time poster. I have replaced the coils with new bosch coils packs, spark plugs were replaced with laser platinum NGK. This fixed the misfire issue for a few months. It then was back, misfiring on cylinders 4-6. I replaced the...

    My automatic 2002 325i shakes when idling. Popped the hood and saw the whole engine shaking. Doesn't matter if it's in drive, park, or neutral. Goes away immediately when moving or when I just rev the engine in park or neutral. Turning on the AC tends to make it worse. So far I've replaced all...

    I know there are some threads on this topic but my issue seems unique. I have a previous thread related to this that I will put below. I am only reposting some info because my original post issue has changed. Need some extra eyes. Looking for some help because I have one day left before I have...

    I need your help and advice. My 7 recently seems to be a trouble pit. The check engine light has been turning on/off. Now it's on constantly. Today the car is shaking, feels like it wants to shut off and theres no acceleration. I shut off the car for about 30 min and now the car seems ok...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Just in March 2017 I had a full service done by bmw i.e oil change, spark plugs, micro filter and air filter. Now as I understand it, the parts on this should be under warantee for atleast a year. In July I had an issue with an engine that was a manufacturers fault (was a thread I...
  12. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    My 2009 128i convertible is coming up on 100k miles so I figure it's time to change the plugs. I checked getbmwparts and the OEM plugs are $16.25 (each?). Does anyone have recommendations on replacement plugs? Should I absolutely stick with BMW plugs or are there cheaper plugs which are just as...

    Hello, I have a 2006 330i e90 BMW. I just wanted to document what happened to me with my car so that it may help others in the future. So here goes... One day I was driving from work to home, roughly 20 miles and I got home, walked inside, came back out, turned my car on, and all of sudden my...
  14. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I received the dreaded drivetrain malfunction warning the other day. I had noticed some hesitation here and there but didn't think much about it. I pulled over, restarted the car and it went away. A couple of days later it returned and did not go away. I pulled the code and it was P0308. I...

    Isn't it fun when you go to two different dealers and they each find something completely different wrong with your car, not mentioning what the other found wrong? Anyway...one of them is telling me my spark plugs are up for changing. The other didn't even mention them. However, months ago I...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2006 BMW 330i. I changed all my spark plugs today and found oil in my #3 and #4 spark plug chambers. About a shot of oil in each. How could this happen? What could the problem be and what should I do??
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I bought my 03 e39 last April at about 150,000 miles and now it has 161700 miles. Since I don't know when the previous owner replaced the spark plug, I'm going to replace all of them with NGK BKR6EQUP this winter. I heard some people say I should replace the ignition coils and spark plug boots...

    Hi, this is my first time posting here. Heads up, I don't know jack sh$% about cars. I'd like your thoughts on my situation. 3 Months ago my 2008 328i wouldn't turn over. I had it towed to a local shop and they told me it was my spark plugs. So I had all 6 spark plugs replaced and paid a lot...

    Hi. Bimmerfest has been a great resource for me. It has saved me a ton of $. Thanks to all who contribute. I am posting this in hopes that it helps somebody else diagnose their misfire faults. I apologize for the length of this post, but I thought it might be helpful, or at least...
