    E34 520i won't kick down

    Tim Pollock has a 520i auto in for breaking. Might be worth changing the box over for a known good one. Also worth testing the alternator output as a low voltage does throw the transmission error. It should be 14.0v to 14.3 volts with the engine running at 2k revs.

    E34 520i won't kick down

    As Whisky Chaser says, I wonder if it is stuck in Sports mode given the high rev point change. Being able to select any gear without pressing the button is dangerous, that lock is, I assume, a safety feature to prevent accidental/incorrect gear selection. I would take the gear handle off, if the white rod is missing or broken, or is not attached to the handle, it needs sorting with either a replacement rod or handle. If you have the skills it is also worth replacing the capacitors in the cluster and separate auto cluster module so you can at least see what is going on.

    E34 540 - left bank not firing

    I think it's time to check al the rubber hoses, check the air intake hose between the TB and air filter for cracks (item 2), clean the idle control valve or replace it, http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/540i-M60/R-M/apr1994/browse/fuel_preparation_system/mass_air_flow_sensor/ When did the PCV last get changed? Item 3. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E34-Sedan/Europe/540i-M60/R-M/apr1994/browse/engine/intake_manifold_system/ That will defintiely cause poor idle. Re the oxygen sensors, did you use Bosch or some other aftermarket parts?

    Rather nice looking E34

    I would go by condition and given the driver's seat looks mint, it's loks a well looked after car with all maintenance done rather than a rotten, unmaintained pile of poo. Plenty of life left in that one. Odometer easy to sort out, can't understand why he hasn't to be honest, Window trim also easy to sort.

    E34 Anthracite cloth seats

    Carl, re reat tailgate spoiler, I think you arre best off getting a new one. Unless you get one off a garage queen, any 2nd hand one is also going to be rotten, or close to rotten.

    The official BMW 5, E34 540i Touring thread.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have scrapped the one I bought but it was a total rust bucket. I know the only techno violet 540i 6sp touing was exported to Poland, exports obviously don't appear in the figures.
