    Hello, Our BMW X5 (2003) recently lost power and started billowing white smoke from exhaust. The AA diagnosed issue with Turbo.

    Hello all, A couple of weeks ago I (drunk on ebay) bought a 2008 320d with apparent head gasket failure. Went to have a look at the car and it was pressurising the coolant but otherwise fine so took it home. As the EGR cooler could feasibly create the same symptoms (and is a common failure)...

    My brand new 2 series has developed a disgusting crack after a tiny stone chip today. My insurance claim has put me onto auto glass who are replacing the screen this week. My concern is, as I have the connected drive system will a new windscreen disrupt this? Also will the glass provided by auto...

    Had the E61 525 for about six months now and ever since buying it seems to emit quite a lot of white vapour from the exhaust. When cold it'll do it in all conditions but when it gets hot it's usually just a bit of a wisp of vapour when sat in traffic. It also seems to blow vapour onto the rear...

So my question is am I...

    HI guys & gals, New to the 5 series ownership and was wondering if anyone could shed a little light on what I think is a cracked manifold? I have a 530D that has a distinctive smell of fumes on idle out side the car but not inside and when driving cold the car sounds a little tappy/knocky...

    I've been noticing my usually smooth oil burner starting to get less and less smooth over the last few weeks :frown In the service history, the exhaust manifold was replaced around 2009, but I suspect it may have cracked again, is this likely? Under acceleration, and at idle, it sounds a...

    It would seem that my exhaust manifold has cracked in a couple of places - AGAIN!! A new manifold was fitted a short time before I bought the car two years ago, it has done 40,000 since it was fitted. I have seen posts in various places about them cracking before, but I had rather thought that...

    Hi guys, Im thinking to purchase an e36 but the issue with it is that the valve cover has completely cracked. The owner of it currently says that he changed the crankshaft sensor, and then as soon as he turned it after, it blew. I found it really odd and don't know what you guys would suggest...
