    Misfire mystery

    Update. I know I was getting an error code on my car. The error code was relating to a misfire on cycling der 7 & 8. Further investigation showed me that both Injectors were faulty, so I need to find suitable replacements. Thanks
  4. Hi there.... I checked my injectors and found that two Injectors were not working So, my question is the original injectors are by Bosch - 770 0280 150 778 can I use Bosch 0280 155 823 8njectors as an upgrade? Thanks

    Misfire mystery

    Thank you, I will check the sensor a, the connectors etc. Please note, that the car was working 100% fine until I removed the intake manifold and cleaned the injectors. So, I may have not cleaned the two injectors which are causing the issue, or I may not have plugged the cables in correctly etc... So, I will have a check list to work through and sort out this issue. Thanks

    Not yet, but I will get one. What I do have is a blue tooth device connected to the 20 pin connector that gives me basic information, fault codes, revs etc.... Thanks

    Misfire mystery

    I think it could be a connector issue. But I will check the o2 sensor too. If it was the o2 sensor would my misfire just remain to 3 and 4 coils or would it be across the 8 cylinders etc...? Thanks

    Hi, the spark plugs Sr e all good and I gave checked them. The coils too are good, they have been checked. The suspect coils are on another bmw and all is working fine. I will be checking for vacuum leaks etc..... As for compression..... I doubt if there is any issues on the compression. The car was working fine until I removed the intake manifold... once again, there could be a possibility of there being a vacuum leak.... Will check it out in the next few days Thanks

    Misfire mystery

    Hi, can anyone help me with this issue I am having on my car. I checked the error codes and I can up with this... P0300 - RANDOM MISFIRE P0303 - CYCLINDER 3 MISFIRE P0130 - O2 SENSOR CIRCUIT (BANK 1, SENSOR1) P0304 - CYCLINDER 4 MISFIRE So, I removed ignition coil 3 and 4 replacing them with working units. I started the car and it sounded ok but, still the error code popped up. The engine was still misfiring and the drive was lacking power, nothing brilliant. (PREVIOUSLY.... A FEW MONTHS AGO I REMOVED THE INJECTORS AND CLEANED THEM, REPLACED SEALS ETC. ) Could there be an issue with injectors 3 & 4 causing a misfire? If anyone can assist me solve this matter I would really appreciate it. Thank you Car ... BMW 540i automatic, saloon. Thanks

    E39 540i not starting .... HELP PLZ

    Hi Dan.. So, today my job was to finish off my car, ready youvthe MOT. I started the engine and let it run for about 5 mins. It acted normal no issues. I checked the fault codes and then cleared them. After thst I rechecked the codes, the codes were gone. Which was good. I amnhopi g that the codes don't return, but let's see.... The only issue that I have now is that the idling is slightly rough. I feel that I may have made a mistake when I removed the injectors. Though the injectors were cleaned I don't think I did that correctly. So, i think they may need to be recleaned and tested under pressure to clear out any crap inside. Tomorrow's task is to bleed the brakes..... the joys lol Thanks Dan, have a fab weekend
