    E28 535i fuel injectors

    Tim’s what would the difference be between the 2 ? my current injectors are yellow

    Duncan good idea In all honesty think I’ll find a fresh set of replacement injectors what upgrade injectors are members using if any ? I don’t remember whether Sharky upgraded the injectors to mustang spec ill check injector part numbers and update soon I do remember Sharky had a nitrous kit installed and other gadgets

    Hi I’m in search for a good working throttle position sensor for a 1987 m535i many thanks

    It’s cool Duncan I’m just glad this forum group is still active and a lot of you knowledgeable old timers are still here Duncan I carried out more testing as you suggested and after more tinkering this is what I’ve found after further investigation and lots of tinkering around here are some findings and results Firstly I removed the x2 reference sensors in bell housing and used my phone to look inside. The reference pin is still intact and no signs of damage are visible. That eliminates the reference pin also eliminates the pulse sensors as I swapped both with my spare backups. I removed AFM ICV and the rubber boot which connects to throttle body. I then lifted the fuel rail from the inlet manifold and cranked engine and all injectors are spraying but 1 looked as if it was possibility over fuelling or leaking So with the fuel rail out I squirted some fuel into the holes and cranked up engine and engine started up for a few seconds and ran fine. I then fitted the fuel rail back into inlet manifold and cranked engine and bang it back fired So even with the AFM removed and icv the backfire is still present with fuel rail pushed into its home position But when removed the engine runs fine. So possibly a leaking injector which is gathering fuel in the inlet while the valve is closed and possibly ignites when the valve beside it opens Just a thought

     I’ve checked fuel pressure checked all leads for spark removed cap & arm cleaned inspected checked TDC compression tested all 6 cylinders swopped all electronics for my spare backups Afm icv Swapped both bell housing pulse reference sensors with spare brand new ones gone through all connections and wires looking for rat damage removed fuel rail to check whether injectors are firing swopped all relays in and out of fuse box with my back up spares swopped ecu with my back up spares x2 car drove fine before parked up for a week There’s something I thought I’d mention a noise from gearbox area like a tinging noise as if a spanner is tapped on the exhaust pipe when starting car from cold just 1 time ting sound like a tap on the exhaust pipe yhe flywheel was skimmed a month before this problem began. fitted new clutch kit with skimmed flywheel fitted a e34 starter motor while everything was stripped out and had access owned car since 2010 and never had such a problem I bought the car off a forum member on here named Sharky it’s a 87 royal blue metallic you probably remember me from when I bought a engine off you. Collected the engine in a blue Vauxhall zafira some years ago Engine is still sitting in my man cave

    Hi all I’ve gone through the no start guide and the only thing that comes to mind is the flywheel reference pin possibly fallen off or broken off. so will remove sensors in bell housing and have a look inside.

    Hi yes I removed plugs after some engine turning and all wet what ate the chances of the timing chain slipping ? seems like timings out but again could be something else

    Okay guys after some checking and cleaning still no luck as above I removed all spark plugs gave them a clean and brush and reinstalled. Removed distributor cap and cleaned removed rotar arm and cleaned all leads checked for spark ⚡️ and all are firing with a decent spark the fuel system is fitted with a fuel pressure gauge under the bonnet and that shows decent pressure at around I even fitted my spare pulse sensors in bell housing to eliminate those and still no start fitted my spare ecu but still no start It just back back fires through the throttle body and airflow meter with a hug bang and a puff of smoke. just wondering could there be a relay within the fuel timing and ignition timing that could have failed? so I have spark fuel and but everything seems to be firing in the wrong order
