    Finally got round to repairing the oil filter housing oil leak with a new gasket. After removing the charge hose from the intercooler to the throttle body I found the rubber gaskets need replacing. Cannot find a supply on evil bay in the UK or on google.

  4. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi, The batteries in my E31 are dead... my own fault for not starting the car over the last year (it sits under a cover and I'm very lazy). Alas the MOT is now due so I'd like to take it to get tested and start using it again over the Summer. I have a simple Draper 4A wall charger that I've...

    I’m getting nervous about the Ulez in london. My 6 was registered in 82 so that means I’ll fall short by about 5 months before it reaches the 40 year classic car exemption. Can I register as a classic now.

    The car has been standing for several months and battery is totally dead.

    So basically live INPA details showing desired and actual values show that Charge Air pressure is low even at Idle. The desired value is about 1000 and the actual is more like 800 and it is idling like that. I understand that MAP sensor is responsible for measuring this in Inlet manifold and...

    From the mains (a 12v car battery charger of course), connected to the + point (not the battery but the jump point) under the bonnet, and then the negative to the bodywork/chasis, and leave it overnight? I've charged car batteries without disconnecting and removing from the car before with...

As expected, when I got in the car the battery was dead flat so I charged it and used the car a few times over the next couple of days without any issues. But after not using the...

    Just finished swapping in the inlet blanks, put it all back together. Started it, everything ok. Got 100 metres down the road and absolutely no power. Felt like the car was breathing through a straw. The fault code is 3f25 charge air tube monitoring. Can anyone shed some light as I'm in Kent...
