    1998 528i Auto breaking

    June 1998 R reg single vanos 528i automatic, breaking for obvious reasons. 95,000 miles and was a nice thing before something big and ugly ploughed into it. It won't be here for 2 weeks. It's an okayish spec car. The wheels I'm probably going to keep.

    It won't fit yours as you probably have the Becker with flat pins in the connector. This is a Philips with round pins.

    What goes here - see picture

    Plastic jacking pad?

    Oil level too high and keeps rising.

    A faulty glow plug relay will also prevent a regen.

    Er, righto....

    Could be a flaky injector overfuelling. I had this drama with a Saab and have yet to resolve it.

    Yup, this is what's happening - it needs an oil change ASAFP and a good 3000 rpm run to regenerate the DPF.

    Alternator issues

    Bosch only. So much stuff including Bremi MAFs are just garbage.

    Improvements

    All this tuning work, and an old 535d with a crafty remap hands you your arse on a silver plate. The old 3.0 is an okay engine and sort of tuneable. I have one in mine. It needs a better cam as the factory one is a bit tame. Same cam as the 3.5. A cam, head skim and proper ECU remap might get a shade over 200 bhp albeit with less useable torque than a stock 3.5. The E34/E32 3.0 has smaller ports and inlet valves than the 3.5. The first port of call is an ECU remap. As standard they are very tame (extremely lean) and were designed to run a catalytic converter. That's why they feel as flat as a fart.

    Sorry but I didn't take it off.

    BMW E39 523i - auto transmission question

    It would have had one wrong sized tyre fitted. The ABS sensors would detect one wheel going at a different speed to the others and relayed the info to the gearbox ECU.

    Sorry, but.....

    M535i Clutch Master Cylinder, do you recognise this

    This is the correct cylinder. The black one is made by FAG so it's not rubbish. It's just not right.

    E28 clutch master

    I sold mine for £20 a couple of days ago. The pedal box was revised on M30 cars in late 1986 and used an internal E30 style cylinder.

    They've just gone now, and E46's are starting to dry up.

    Any other cars that seem to have just disappeared?

    I rebuilt an R8 Gordini in 1988. I then bought it after it had been parked in a damp garage for several years, and sold it straight on.

    Petrols as well, especially the four cylinder junk. Scrapyards are brimming with them and they will die off pretty quickly. E87's as well.
