  1. E36
    I have an E36 320i with manufacturing date 28/97, the engine started to get rough while idling and it has erratic engine running. Upon checking I noticed that one ignition is not firing.

    Hi guys I have a 1991 E34 518i with the m40 engine that I have as a project car. It had serious vacuum leaks, so I took off the inlet entire manifold to replace the gaskets. While it was off I cleaned the idle control valve, tps, throttle body and the manifolds from oil and checked the o-rings...

    Hi I have a 2006 730D, I have recently had a jumping sensation coming from the engine. With a (only way I can describe it) sucking sound coming from the engine corresponding to the jumping motion. Not had anything coming up on the dash - so no fault codes. It happens randomly and when it is...

    Hello All, My recently bought 530d seems to have a lot of tiny things wrong with it that i am slowly working my way round, unfortunately a new one recently added itself to the list that has me slightly stumped. Last week I opened my boot (from the key) and the solenoid did its usual noise...

    Bought the car the other day to save it from being scrapped; it was sold as a non-runner with quite a lot of issues which I am going to sort. FIRST OF ALL: I need to get it running but while the key does turn and engine turn over, it just wont start. It feels healthy so I don't understand why...

    Help! I was unfortunate enough to be queuing in traffic last night when the local river burst its banks. The road quickly turned to a torrent and a number of us were forced to drive though it. The water level was roughly up to the bottom of my bonnet. I got most of the way through when the car...

    Hello everyone. My first post here. For some time I have this anoying few second noise coming from the engine when starting it up after longer period of time usually first thing in the morning. Looks to me as the timing chain needs attention. The lower tensioner has been replaced. Any ideas...

    Hi Guys, think I mentioned this a while ago, but much worse now. I swapped the DME's over and the intermittent firing fault stayed on bank 7-12. When it fails, none of the 7-12 cylinders fire, but after a couple of re-sets with the key, it will fire up. It now has a VERY strong smell of fuel...

    As per title. when idling pot number 4 is not firing. As soon as I hit the acc. pedal it joins in again. This only happens when the engine is warm. Fiddling with injector connections makes no difference. Any ideas?
