    Hi All, I'm about to replace the valve stem seals on the N62. I found two brands for the TOOLS : 1) AGA - link (well known, seen on many diy) 2) Kommen tools (link) Seems like they have almost same components. I'll probably go with AGA, but by curiosity : Has anyone used the Kommen...

    hi there, Not a mechanic, Can anyone shed some light into this F20 116i radiator valve? what is its purpose? is it a return line? I've seen F20 radiators with and without such valve, I'm pretty sure it's not the oil coolant line and also it's not for the intecooler, it being an Air to Air type...

    Hey guys, I have a new issue with the my x5 35d 2009, I have the check engine light come on with the code p0087. Sometimes it puts me into limp mode without really being in it because I can still rev up to 4000rpm, and some other times, it gives a "bang" and the car shuts down drastically. I...

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...

    I have an unused Fumoto F-109N oil drain valve and the extension needed for an e60 oil pan. Found out when I changed the oil that my bolt is pointing straight down, which is 535xi specific I guess. (pics I found online showed pointing down at more of an angle at the end of the pan). Anyway...

    Hey all, My '09 328i heater isn't working. I believe part of the heater core is blocked or the heater control valve is bad. I have some heat on the passengers side but luke warm air on the drivers side. Whenever the A/C is started a slight vibration is felt, and a blast of warm air usually fogs...
