  1. The MINI Board
    Hi, I have a 2007 Mini Cooper S, N14 engine with turbo. I apologize in advance for the long post, this is my first post ever lol. I was driving down the road around 40mph, heard a slapping noise, the check engine light came on and it started getting hot. I immediately pulled over and turned the...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Hi everyone, I picked up a used 335xi with 89k miles on it less than a year ago. After about 6 months after I purchased it and drove about 15k miles on it, it started to start up and run rough in the mornings and then smooth out after it warmed up. I brought it to my mechanic who changed the...

    So it all started after a pull 10 months ago. My serpentine belt ripped and went inside the crank seal. We all know the deal when this happens. I got all the pieces out BESIDES the ones stuck in the oil pick up tube (I forgot.) A few months after, I would notice my car would go into limp mode at...
  4. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi all, My 1997 BMW 750il V12 started making a top end clacking noise.The car seemed to run and idle OK, other than the noise and I drove it for about 2-3 months like this. I finally took it apart this weekend and found two rocker arms were no longer lined up with the valve stems...

    I noticed in intake ports 1,5,8 only one valve has carbon deposits the other valve next to it is clean. The rest of the ports are clean. I am not experiencing smoke out of the exhaust so it can't be bad valve seals. Hopefully. Could it be that injector is not spraying correctly? Im just throwing...
  6. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi, I just completed my 2008 BMW 120i M-sport cylinder head job DIY to get rid of white smoke and oil burning issue. Car is running smooth and great. Dealer quoted AU$5k but I DIY'ed to do the repair in just over AU$1.5k including all the parts. I am happy to share my experience and knowledge if...

    Hi! I know that a new thread about ticking noises seems odd due to the high numbers of other threads on bimmerfest that has already been solved, but I HAVE done plenty of research before coming to the conslusion to start a new thread about the matter, trust me. So please hear me out on this...
  8. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Alright then, like I said in my M52 swap thread I'll post a thread containing just the images of my old engine (M50B20); which I completely disassembled just out of curiosity. well, here is the thread: Hopefully it isn't a complete was of space, there must be someone interested in this kind of...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    There was a thread here somewhere quite a while ago where the user posted pictures of his car's valves when he had everything apart at some 100,000+mi service. He noted that he used exclusively Shell V-Power gas. The valves were insanely clean and were enough to convince me to use name brand...

    Hello All, I have recently moved to Philadelphia PA I am looking to service my engine in my 2000 740i. Is there anyone in my area that has adjusted the valves. I am looking to learn how to do this myself. Anyone out there willing to teach? I am also looking for a local club to get together with...

    Hi! My 99 525 TDS makes alot of noise on idle ( low load) I suspect it might be the injector pump timing or the hydraulic valves knocking but it seems unlickley :dunno: Is there an easy way to adjust the pump timing? my guesses is that the timing is adavnced from when the pump gaskets was...
  12. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Just bought myself a BMW 1985 323i, 4 door, that had been neglected. A quick rub back of the paint, and hopefully some engine fixes, will bring it back to life. An engine from the wreckers is cheap, hence buying the car, i got quotes before buying the car, because they mentioned that the...
