    Hi Guys, Recently bought a 2006 bmw 335i with 63,000 miles the day i got it i heard the wastegate rattle ( on start up and on deceleration) and confirmed it was indeed the actuator by turning on the engine and applying pressure to the actuator. There is a good bit of play in it, so armed with...

    Hi Guys, So I have an issue with the actuators on my 335i turbos. The garage has taken the turbo's off my car as I requested them. The actuator seems a bit loose but nothing more, but I've been told that the arms and bushes on both turbos prevent the wastegates from closing. I've rang up a few...

    I purchased my 335i in February this year, and soon noticed that on cold startup the turbos were rattling away. As the car had FBSH and extended warranty, I decided to take it to BMW, pay the excess and they replaced both the turbos. However, after completing just under 2k miles, there is a new...

    Yesterday I took the liberty of replacing my thermostat, whilst doing this I cleaned out the egr valve and inlet manifold opening, after what I thought was a good job well done I started up the vehicle and took it for a drive thinking that removing the crap would make it drive better.... But no...

    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...

    Hi all, hope you guys had a good Christmas and a Happy New Year. Just a quick query, hope somebody in the know can give me an answer. Seems my wastegate or the Vanes on the turbo, whatever this car has, I am unsure, are staying open to around 2000rpm then closing. Under medium to full load...

    I need some information regaring actuator wastegate adjustment for bmw 320D M47 engine 136 hp. I think that the ex owner modified that 10mm nut from actuator and now, sometimes i can feel a limp mode because too much pressure, and sometimes a little turbo lag. Has anybody idea how many whirls...

  20. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Last year the car developed a problem: it was down on power and sruggled to cruise at even low speeds, now needing more gas - I had a new turbo installed (recon) as it needed one but the problem persisted. Eventually it was tracked down to the pipe coming off the actuator: it had collapsed. The...
