    A few days ago, my idle seemed a bit "lumpy" like a very light misfire and my SES light came on. Driving felt normal if not a bit down on torque below 3k. Pulled the code through my Peake reader which gave me code 21 in table 0F, meaning camshaft vanos control bank 1 cyl#1-4. I pulled the P...

  3. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    I had a broken guide on my m54b30 upper chain tensioner (the one on the cam to cam chain). I bought a used one online that looked perfect, but the actual plastic guide that makes contact with the chain was subtly different and unusable. Can anyone identify which model this part is for? Here is...

    I've got a 2005 525i with the older 2.5L M54 engine. I've been having the P0011 or 28B6 error intermittently for the past couple of years. I have noticed that when the error is gone (service engine soon light is off on the gauge cluster) it typically comes back on startup when its a bit colder...
  5. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi guys, I am new to these forums. Someone sold me this car for a pretty good deal, knowing that it needed work. It feels like it has a misfire because it has surely lost power, it shakes like it is misfiring, and sounds weird. No weird engine noises though, just the exhaust. Trying to fix...

  7. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, I'm new here and new to the BMW world I recently purchased a 2001 X5 with the 4.4 and it came with a P0011 code. I figured it was an easy fix, and replaced both cam position sensors and both VANOS solenoids. I tested the solenoids (after i installed them) and both are known good...
  8. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hello, I am new to this forum and am seeking some advice. I am in the process of renewing the timing chains and chain guides and have found something not covered in any posts I have seen. The hole in the flywheel for inserting the locking pin is not visible anywhere near the TDC mark on the...
  9. Parting Out
    I have a couple of spare VANOS gears from my 2000 540i. I picked up a couple of used gears before I did my timing guides and had them rebuilt so everything was ready to go when I started the job. $125.00+$13.00 for shipping. They need to be rebuilt. Do it yourself for dirt cheap or I used the...

    Hey guys. I have used these tools and let a couple of others benefit from them as well. Time to move them on. I listed them on Ebay. Here is the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Cam-Tools-M62-M62tu-Master-Camshaft-Timing-Tools-/292141824980? They are the G.A.S. tools and they are AWESOME. These...

    Long time lurker, first time poster... Recently I purchased a 2000 540i/6 that was not running. Will crank but only "run" for a couple seconds. Using a generic obdII reader I got p0345 plus a bunch of misfires with fuel cutoff codes. So I decided to replace both cps'. Whilst doing that I stuck...

    I know you may be thinking, "OMG another post about these guide rails." However; After weeks and weeks of scouring the internet, I feel that my question may be different and specific to my case. So here's a little back ground... I have a 97 BMW E39 M62 non-vanos Manual Transmission. I Recently...
  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Does anybody know the part # for the bolts that hold on the chamshaft/timing sprockets for m50 non-vanos motor? I am putting my head back together for my head gasket change and cannot seem to find two of them anywhere and im pretty sure you are not supposed to replace them with regular hex...
  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    2001 X5 4.4l After using the vanos timing kit M62TU, setting the timing. I removed the jigs in the front and when I removed the block in the back, the upper camshaft rotated inward maybe 1 tooth. My torque wrench does't work when locking a reversible threaded bolt (or torx bolt), so I could...

  16. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hello. I am thinking about buying a new X5. Was told they have the N47T engine where the timing gear starts to rattle. It's supposed to be fixed to the point that the chain will not break, but it could make some noises, maybe around 100.000 km. Now when I check the parts catalog at RealOEM I...

    And the eccentric cam sensor tabs are kaputt! After spending hours trying to remove the driver side (left side) valve cover and realizing how much space is gained by removing the vent ducts; the valve cover finally came off... along with the eccentric cam sensor tabs! It would seem to me that...

    Hi, I was removing my swirl flaps, and noticed how gunned up all my manifold was. I decided to give it a good clean, popped some rubber gloves in the engine ports and closed the bonnet. Cleaned the manifold and dried fully. Upon refitting, the port nearest the windscreen was full of water. It...
