    V8 curiosity

    Never too old for a manual... I I'm 50 and I have a 6 speed in my E39, and I couldn't imagine driving it any other way lol... The only thing I don't like about my M62 V8 is it has ALL the leaks lol...

    I broke it again

    All up it wasn't that hard... Put the rear end up on stands and for $4 per side for new high tensile 12x1.5x100mm with washers and lock nuts, and a couple of hours work I was back on the road to go get the CV boot replaced. That boot replacement wasn't cheap but it had to be done and at least I didn't have to fight with that axle nut and retorque it again.

    I broke it again

    I thought it was the guibo when it started... When I put the car up I noticed this. Seems a bolt and I parted ways.. Circumstances unknown because it's long gone, but there doesn't appear to be any damage consistent with being loose for any period.

    Generally as a rule of thumb, we would replace aged shocks as a pair, but if it's counterpart is not that old and the replaced shock has failed due to damage and not wear and tear then it's perfectly fine to consider only replacing a single unit. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder

    Well that was an easy fix!

    Or look here newtis.info Plug your VIN in and browse to the section you want. It's not terribly user friendly, but you'll get the hang of it. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder

    Would you sell your e39 for an e38??

    Very nice Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder

    Help, no luck with the trifecta of abs/dsc

    Also check what the charging voltage is at the battery... Low alternator performance has been known to cause these kinds of failures Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  13. I've never had an issue jumping from either set of terminals. However there is a procedure to follow especially using non suppressed cables. In OPs case it was another issue altogether, which makes me think he has a transfer pump problem. Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  14. Check to see if one of your terminals is loose... It wouldn't be the first time. I've seen a jump start knock loose a clamp that had come undone a touch and was only holding tight by force of habit Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
  15. Did you use your battery or the jump posts under the bonnet for the power source? Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder
