    hi new here names mark from the uk

    quick rundown need to fix the problem ive taken a bmw 318is s reg and took the management loom and engine out of 325i L reg and fitted it into the 318 but heres the problem the s reg runs a chip key setup called ews which sends a message to the ecu to make it run but the 325 didnt have this feature so the message is getting sent but the ecu has no clue what its talking about hence it wont start i realy need to sort this as i want to smash it lol

    anyone know how to remove the ews or bypass it

    How was that for quick though???

    That thread of yours on the other was frustrating the hell out of me

    That's why I thought it would be better to invite you over.

    PS Welcome to the forum

    Excellent news mate

    Really glad that sorted it for you though abmwworld originally told me about this trick so I cant take all the credit .



    Hopefully we now have another life long member in our midst

    Thats well funny that all those auto electricians and 'top tuners' couldnt sort it
    Just put a tip in the box on the way out please

    ps// Dont go spreading that info around the web is all I ask.
    For one you had to work hard to find it out!!! and two its not good for BMW owners and the anti-theftability of their 'secure' cars!

    As to the sticking tappet.

    heres what I would do....firstly check all your spark plugs are in tight just in case as this is the noise they can make if not here

    But as you seem to know what your doing Im sure your right on the money with the sticking tappet...
    I would get the engine up to running temperature, drain the oil and use a wynns tappet cleaner if you can get hold of one...as here wynns

    or if not then just a good old oil change and refill with some quality semi synthetic (5w40?)

    I would bet that cures it or quietens it down....certainly so if it didnt do it before, the oil has probably congealed if the engine has stood and a flush would be a big help.

    Well recruited A20
