    Hey all, 1. I ordered Moog tie rods (inner/outer) and a Moog bellows kit to replace existing. Moog bellows will not fit my vehicle (2004, 330xi) because ht tapered end (outer) leaves a gaping hole around the rod. The boot removed tapers tight to the rod but everywhere i go, they provide this...

    I need to replace my coolant temp sensor. I watched a Youtube video on it and it looked really easy to do. I ordered the part and when I went to replace it I could not find the existing sensor. The video shows the guy looking down the driver side of the radiator and the sensor is on the top...

    The temp sensor for fuel injection on my 2001 525it has been diagnosed as the problem for misfires when the car warms up. The ignition computer thinks the engine is cold after it has warmed up and gives injectors extra fuel causing misfiring or rough idle. My question is, where is the sensor? I...
