  1. Hi my 520d Lci egr went faulty few days ago as the valve at the bottom siezed, the rod could not move at all, so got a new egr and fitted it worked ok for 2 days but now same fault codes and loss of power 40e9 postion control fault 4c9e egr plausibility This time the vacuum rod at the bottom is ok and moves Freely by hand, I checked the vacuum hose going to the top works fine but the vacuum hose that goes to the valve at the bottom only seems to have suction when on cold start, (maybe normal ?) any advise please thanks

    Coolant level too low e61 520D

    Also I have noticed the heating in the car is not at hot, on max warm and max speed it still is not that hot like it used to be the pipes holding pressure all the time even after 48hrs when you open expansion lid there like a release of pressure

    Do you think the block can be cracked too ?

    Coolant level too low e61 520D

    I ran it again with new water pump coolant and same issue water goes down after drive no overheating just the radiator pipes are rock solid, when cold when you run engine with the expansion lid off there is one bubbles coming and it pushes coolant out the bottle every 10 secs

    Coolant level too low e61 520D

    The leak seems like it’s coming from the expansion tank lid, the pipes get rock solid and you can hear the water on the bottle. The temp gets to 90 degrees took the water pump off and looks ok too, the head gasket along with chain rockers etc were done 50k ago I did notice recently white condensation type smoke from the exhaust but not always but the outside temp was like 15 degrees and never used to get this type of condensation unless really cold in the -

    Coolant level too low e61 520D

    It’s not as slow now, filled up to max and went just below minimum in 60 miles the coolant was red which was the colour of the dried coolant marks around the water pump and some water hoses. So I put yellow leak die in but no new leak / dried coolant marks appear which would be yellow (colour of the die)

    Coolant level too low e61 520D

    I checked coolant tank and it seems ok. Took the covers off but did not notice any leaks. Some of the pipes including the water pump had dried coolant but nothing like a big new leak Took out the water pump and looks ok, only thing is now the egr got stuck yesterday, not sure if it’s related to the water loss

    The Lci had the better gearbox, if it has had all the main things which go wrong changed then if the price is right then maybe worth a risk. Just check things like dpf suspension if it’s been changed and with oem parts

  13. Hi my e61 520D has started showing low coolant every 2-300 miles. The coolant goes just below the min and the light comes on. i top it up with coolant but again after about 2-300 miles it goes down. I can’t see any visible leaks anywhere. There is one signs of hard dried coolant around some of the pipes but there no leaks, I put some dye in there to see if the pipes have any leak but can’t see anything but haven’t stripped the covers etc off yet.
  14. You can raise and lower the air suspension in inpa. You can also set and remove transport mode. I done this a few months ago.
