valve seals

  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Using the AGA tool. Did bank 2 first and without issue. Working the rear intake valve under the “cage” on cylinder 2, the spring popped a bit as I was removing the lifter. It was just enough to shoot one of the keepers into another realm. I cant find it, I’ve stuck the magnet into every corner...

    Guys, I am new here and am looking for some advice based on your experience. Story time: Mileage: 68000, did servicing as recommended by BMW, right now it is out of warranty and I don't have extended warranty. 2 months back I noticed smoke from the tail pipe when I first start in the morning...

    Anyone recommend affordable mechanic to do my valve seals on my 2008 750Li in the Jacksonville, FL area? Cheapest price quoted so far was $5500. Can do myself with AGA Tool for around $1300 (parts and tools total). But not sure I want (or can) do myself.

    HELP ME! Cool, now since we have that out of the way, I have bought a 87' 325E from a buddy of mine with about 190k on the clock for only $500 since it sat for 4 years. It would run for a little while and then stutter and have little to no power, then kick back on, changed both fuel pumps and...

    Hello fellow members! I'm taking a dive here and will attempt to remove the heads (or whole engine) in order to give hard working engine a new lease on life (it's the least I can do for her after 295K hard working miles without a major hiccup). How did she managed you might ask??? The answer is...

    1998 740iL with 211,000 miles. Got this car for my sons first car. We are having a great time working on rebuilding it for his first car. We have currently stripped the engine down to the block and cylinder heads and are acquiring a vast array of parts to recondition the engine, cooling...

    I get a ticking noise sometimes when i accelerate. The ticking isn't constant, sometimes during acceleration i here it when i go above 2500rpm, then a plume of smoke comes out the exhaust and the ticking goes away. Its kinda hard to pin point whats causing it. When i have the car parked i here a...

    Been having trouble with my 2001 330i 135,000 miles. Problem started with an apparent oil leak (white smoke in exhaust during ignition only, would occur once in a while only). No problems or loss of power. Mechanic tried cleaning out the engine, and ran a compression test - checked out fine...
