  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I'm a bit confused over the torque settings for the valve/rocker cover for my 320d N47 -09. There seems to be 13 of one part number and 4 with a different number. The 4 ones I suspect is under the clamp to the injectors. I wounder if they all have the same torque including the 4 ones. The screws...

    Hi all, I'm fitting a replacement exhaust camshaft to a badly behaved 2004 318i N42 engine, but cant find any torque settings for the eight nuts securing the exhaust cam bearing caps. If anyone has these torque settings I would be very grateful as I don't want to balls...

    Hi all, This is my first post on this forum.. hello! I recently purchased a e61 535d in carbon black. When test driving the car drove like a dream. The other day it started misbehaving! To cut a long story short it has been put down to the torque converter and some bushes within the box...

    I have read quite a few posts about TC failures - juddering - speeding up and slowing down, which has got me worried!! Most of the posts have been in respect of 535D's - is the problem limited to them, or can it afflict the 530D's as well? The 535D is clearly a bit of a beast, and chucks out a...

    Hey all. I know this has been mentioned amongst other threads however I've seen a fair variation in torque spec for the oil filter housing (3x bolts)... I've seen between 22nm and 32nm! Also, I'm yet to see any torque spec for the 3 small bolts that hold the vacuum pump to the head. I changed...

    So I've had my e46 320cd M sport for just over 6 months / 12k miles and I think it's brilliant, except from the engine. I love the look of it, the way it handles, the comfort on long journeys and the general feel (feels like a tank compared to my old e36). I've done the usual bits to try and...
