  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    My BMW was the first ever BMW I've ever had, and on the very first day, I accidentally hit my coffee cup and a bunch of coffee spilt on the centre console, and as a consequence, the PDC button is sticky, usually when I push it down, it doesn't come back up for a long while - what's the best way...

    Hi all! Still loving my 630i I picked up in June. She's going in for her ATF change today... Just one tiny detail IS bothering me though. It's these small bits of clear stick-on plastic that I presume are supposed to protect the rear wheel arches. Both sides/pieces are peeling off somewhat, and...

    A bit weired this 1 but here goes. When I put the car in reverse and go to move, I get an instantaneous release feel. Just like a sticking caliper when it let's go. It does the exact same when I go from reverse in to first. I know the brakes are fine as I feel the car move under it's own weight...

    Hi all, For the last few weeks I’ve been having a bit of trouble putting the car into 2nd gear. The other gears work fine (inc reverse). Not all the time, just intermittently. When it happens, I usually end up having to put it into another gear first and then into 2nd (with the clutch...

    Here waths happening (sometimes): It only happens with a hot engine, from time to time: The temperature meter goes in red, the handbrake led turns yellow, the car cranks but won't start. My first idea was a bad temperature sensor, so I replaced the temperature sensor, tought it was ok but a...

    Hi if the paper on exhaust test only shows air intake on cold engine but not when hot is that just sticky lifters and not a bad exhaust valve? Also is anyone here able to confirm if pressure test was OK it rules out bad exhaust valve?

    Wondering if anyone can help me. I've got a 2011 3 series saloon. 84k on the clock. Just had it services. They changed the gear box oils and ever since the gear box is very stiff and sometimes refuses to engage in 1st or 2nd. The longer i drive it it gets slightly more free but not much. Any...

    Hi guys, I wanted to pick your brains about a problem i'm having with my engine and it's lack of power 1 in every 15 journeys or so, it's very random so hard to approximate. I've narrowed it down to the turbo wastegate actuator, I believe it is sticking open and not allowing the turbo to do...

    Got my 2008 320d from auction a couple of months ago, 90k on clock, history unknown but did an oil service and its been running well over 1500 miles. Gears seemed fine initially but a few times when stop/ start kicks in at the lights it's taken me 3 attempts to get it into first. Even in...

    I've noticed that my steering wheel is very squeaky, even if it's small turns whilst driving. Whilst it happens mainly when I cold start the car, and improves as it heats up, it still occurs even when driving normally at regular temp... is there anything i can do to stop the squeaking? Also...

    I have just bought a 2000 330ci, a great car but not without some issues. When I bought the car it was lacking power and kept stalling. I plugged in my OBD scanner (generic) and it brought up the code for the Inlet cam sensor. I replaced this and it transformed the car, all power was returned...

    Hey guys just changed front discs & pads today. No problems with braking, had just been told by a trusted mechanic that it was time when I took the car for a service. Started with the o/s/f, was fairly straight forward. Then moved on to the n/s/f, which was a different story... I had to...

    Hi So - have a bit of an ongoing issue: acceleration ok from standing, but less so from, say 30mph. I can floor it and will pick up OK, but if I then take foot off, and floor it again, not a lot happens. The revs drop normally when i take my foot off, but it's like the pedal is sticky, taking...

    Hi All When I bought my E36 compact, the remote central locking did not work from the button on the key or fob (guessing flat battery) so I always used the key in the drivers door to lock and unlock the car without any problems. I've noticed since the ice a few days ago that the door locks...

    It's a small problem but I now feel I need to address my sticky door rubber problem . When I try to open the driver side door I often find that the glass is stuck to the seal. I have "gummi pfledged" many times and even tried silicon grease but it still seems to stick a lot. I have noticed some...
