    Hi guys, noob question here, but I could use some advice. Recently purchased an 86 e30, 190k but immaculate, garage kept, mostly original. Engine is clean and runs great. Trouble is, I don't have a lot of service records for the car, and have been unable to track any down. It appears the car...
  2. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hello, everybody! I was hoping to get some feedback about post engine overheat experiences! Mine's an E34 BMW 524td from 1989 (M21 engine), quite a rare diesel version. A month ago, we had a bit of a scare because the water pump belt broke and the engine overheated for the first time in its...

    I have (actually my wife own it) a 1987 3251C. The vehicle is in Pristine condition with 27,500 actual miles. Interior, body, convertible top, all just immaculate. Its been in storage covered and resting comfortably in my heated warehouse since 2001. I have it so I can take the plugs out and...

    About 3 weeks ago I brought my car into the service center to diagnose a low battery/excessive drain light. As usual, the computer analysis pointed the finger at me and they refused to cover the battery. They also blamed a preexisting, chronic "drivetrain malfunction" light on the low battery...

    Hello everyone, My 2002 330i has been making a squealing sound whenever i start an drive the car. The sound stays the same pitch when i drive and i was wondering if it could be the timing chain? do timing chains even do that? I've heard belts make that sound but I am new to chains. Someone...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Looking into an option to buy a friends e39 which had the timing belt break while being driven. My assumption is that the engine has taken some damage so i am expecting to put some money into it to use as a around town driver or maybe one day track car. What I am trying to get an idea about...

    Hello! My water pump has gone on my 1990 bmw 325i (m20), while replacing the pump I found out my timing belt is shot! I am just wondering wether I should keep the pump out, to put the timing belt in? will it make it easier? If anyone has any step by step instructions to replace a timing belt or...

  12. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I am trying to figure out why I have an engine vibration that is exacerbated when under load at around 1200 rpm, but is there, although less pronounced, even when the motor is not under load. I have an M20 engine that just had its timing belt and water pump changed. I thought maybe it was worn...

    i was driving and my 528i-- just died-- and it will not start again-- battery is good-- no engine lights came on and it did blow some oil in the engine compartment but there was still oil on the dip stick--timing belt or fuel pump--?--
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    my 2000- 528i lost power and just died while i was driving and seemed like it blew oil-- had the oil changed a week earlier and it was ok-- i refilled with oil and checked water and it was ok but now it will turn over but will not start-- i am clueless but i think the timing chain/belt? blew...

    Hi, I have a '86 325es. I think I blew a head gasket and I decided to fix it myself. Everything has been going smoothly but I'm a little unsure on how to get the crankshaft damper off. I already took the pulley off no problem. But, I'm unsure on how to get the damper off. Do I need to remove...

    Hey Everyone, I recently purchased an 89ix back in Michigan and I'm now out in Woods Hole\Falmouth MA for a summer job. It's looking like I need to change the timing belt ASAP (it was last changed 34k ago in 02). I'm new to the DIY scene but I'd like to learn. Is there anyone nearby who'd be...
  17. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey everyone, I've been a BMW enthusiast for a long time - the irony is I don't even own one! But not to worry as I have my eyes targetting a 1986 325e, 2 dr, automatic (ah well), 160,000 miles. I'm actually checking her out tomorrow so I've been doing some research. I love the body on this...
