    535D Suspected Small Turbo Problem

    Continuing on this issue/thread... my vacuum pump had gone completely after i tried to diagnose the leak. New one had been ordered and i will also replace all vac hoses this time round for silicone ones. Before the pump went kaput i did scan the car for errors and noticed the following two using INPA, 4530 and 3F82. Any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    535D Suspected Small Turbo Problem

    Thanks. I will double check tomorrow but i was en route to Sco when it happened (lost low down boost) and i noticed an oil leak when in that area of where the pic was taken. Now i have done ~800 mile round trip and situation had not worsen albeit i will need to dig tomorrow to check what the issue is. I have ordered set of 10m 3.5mm silicon vacuum pipes plus i'd like to replace other 'vulnerable components'. Now you mentioned boost pipe and intercooler connector etc. While other were talking about red pipe. Will anyone be kind to sum them up so that i can order the lot to at least replace the 'easy' elements with a hope it will cure the problem? Many thanks. Ps. Hope it's not low power turbo!

    535D Suspected Small Turbo Problem

    I doubt my comment will help with resolution but i noticed the same on my car too this morning... i do not have any adverse noise/s (or at least i haven't noticed) but i have a leak on the following, just below vacuum pump. Any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any suggestions where to get this done in/around west London? And what sort of price i should expect to pay? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    535d - front suspension

    It only leaves me with shocks or coils. Just to expand... i was doing 50-60mph and had to brake abruptly which caused quite a bit of unpleasant feeling where i felt that car was swerving left/right before it came to a halt. I took it to to a mechanic once again and they cannot see anything?! This is driving me crazy... tyres are new, suspensions is allegedly okay, tracking had been done, no knocks/bangs or squeeks,car drives as it should... yet still quite wobbly at highish speeds.

    535d - front suspension

    I did alignment when i changed the tyres back in May... currently on a set of Toyo Proxes (can't say that i'm overly pleased but they are relatively quiet and good when wet). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    535d - front suspension

    A/b's were replaced before i got the car. So that leaves me with bushes and tie rods i guess? Shocks seem fine to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    535d - front suspension

    I feel that my front feels slightly off an dtad wobbly at times... especially felt on uneven roads and under heavy braking. I took it couple places for thorough inspection nut none came with any findings!? I know it's not right and before i start looking for part and front suspension bits i was wondering if you have any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    BMW E60 535D BLACK SMOKE - SOLVED!

    Have it scanned. Diesel cleaner to start with. DPF may be a culprit here but here is one silly q - your exhaust tips, are they clean (i doubt) or covered in black? Have you noticed oil levels changing? And what's the mileage? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    E60 545i

    I agree... and to add, - juddery idle, signs of smoke, oil residues... simply walk away unless you fancy a winter job with a £££ against it. On the drive side of things... immense. And talking of wolf in sheeps clothes, i just got something that is as fun to drive with some more up to date gadgets on onboard, Audi S6 with naturally aspirated V10. Good luck!

    Oil Service Prices on a 530d - £80-£175

    Don't go cheap on your vehicle... after all it's premium brand and therefore it should be maintained 'appropriately'. If finances are an issue, buy an oil from a reputable manufacturer and take it to a local indy... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2004 E60 530d wont rev past 2.5-3k !

    I'd suggest to check vacuum hoses first (relatively easy) followed by replacement of both thermostats...even before that, have you done the scan? Any errors? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
