    528i won't start

    Hi Captain, I'm in Southport, can we do a deal?

    Late BMW F10 530i / D or Audi A6?

    Current 3 series are probably not far of the E39 size wise. The F10 looks on the money, but I agree it is a big old thing.

    I would say a Lexus or Mazer for reliability, my uncle had a Lexus and said it would outdrive his Merc 350se, having been a lifelong Mercedes fan. Audi make a good fwd car, but the dash, and steering wheel remind me of a 1980's Atari video game. I would be going for another F10, unless you are desperate for a change, has your 525 been reliable?

    Is that the same car Duncan? Just shows you can polish pounds into a car, I agree m20 is ok for an old bus, a bit lethargic by today's standards. The 530, 535, m30's, or the later 525 multivalve, m50? were a much better drive.

    Car started today!! tickover/idle is dog rough, and it won't rev, thinking maybe its the AFM, anyway to be sure its the AFM, before taking the plunge.

    It is a manual transmission, with working cruise control, yes fuel will flow into a can if the fuel return pipe is disconnected

    Checking the pins on the ecu, and what each pin does, will be above my pergrade, will check for injector earth, and not aware of a cold start one under the manifold, a cs injector if there is one will surely take it's fuel feed from the main injector fuel rail.

    Still no joy folks, it will start up then die about 5 seconds later, every time, giving rise to Duncan's theory that it is priming, then cutting out once the primed fuel is spent. Is there a cold start injector on these, 1986 528i, I can only see 6 injectors on it, it would be unlikely for all 6 to fail at once, so maybe none of them are receiving a "run" signal? Things I have done, 1, bridged the pump, injector relay, 2, run a wire to the coil from the battery, 3, drained and replenished with fresh fuel, 4, checked that fuel is getting to the injection rail, yes, 5, blocked off fuel return pipe, in case there is a fuel delivery pressure fault. I feel it could be the injectors are not firing, once it has fired up, and ignition key released. Help.

    Dodgy door: Replace or respray?

    If replacing one with a door the same colour then hopefully the glass will also be a match.

    E39 5HP19 transmission faults

    Do you know the history of the transmission, ie has someone opened it up, and messed with it before you got the car. For instance, you could be looking at 4 clutch bands, when there should be five, if there is a big gap in the clutch pack.

    Dodgy door: Replace or respray?

    Drivers door, respray, any other door replace, all doors except the drivers are a doddle to replace, 4 nuts, hinge pin, and electrical connector, and that's it. With the drivers you are looking at swapping the lock, and probably various electric modules.

    E39 M5 on Collecting Cars.

    £6k to £80k is going some, well done. E28's have taken a jump upwards price wise of late, all models, and still going upwards.
