    The transmission in my E34 has started behaving oddly when slowing down - basically pausing in neutral for a second or two before selecting first gear. Exactly as described on a post on another forum: Whenever I brake medium to hard and come to stop, there's a delay before transmission will...

    After diagnosing a non-working afm, I picked up a used Pierburg afm from a large scrap yard (a proper one, not a bunch of gypsies), same part number and even same year (just a few months apart). Installed it, cleared the fault code using a Autel MaxiDiag scantool and test drove... fine at first...

    As above really guys. Car was ok now it has the problem. I'm reading mixed reports: Vanos? Maf? Camshaft sensor? So a buddy of mine has an obd2 reader. What should I expect, or anyone any experience. Also, is there a throttle cable for my car or is it a sensor at the pedal? Thanks in advance.
