    I have a manual e60 ...

    Was a big manual fan for years, will never have an auto is what I said, then I tried one, a big V8 with a lazy auto box... Went back to manual for a couple of cars after that and hated it... Auto all the way now, traffic is getting worse, auto is the future. These new auto boxes are great, got a 535d, only option is Auto for this anyway but this engine and gearbox is a match made in heaven, changes down much quicker than I ever could and I don't need to worry about rev matching. Will never have a manual again.

    Fault Code Advice

    2A2B would point to the crankcase breather I believe, check it's not blocked and the pipes are not split. 29F1 is something to do with the fuel pressure, maybe worth checking sensor out. 29F5 and P0430 are to do with emissions I think, but not 100% on that. A connection to INPA would be better than check these.

    Help! 530D misfire on FIRST start-up.

    Took me about an hour to change them all, simple enough. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Just a thought, check all your vacuum lines, if any are split this can cause it... You will need to remove manifold but pull each pipe off, the ends tend to split. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    E61 535d doing my head in.

    Well a little update. Starter motor changed. IBS reconnected Car fires up in seconds now Bit I still have the rough idle for a few seconds and smoke for a few seconds until I drive. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Smoking blue/grey

    Probably your rocker cover gasket. Pretty simple to change and about £50 for parts. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Smoking blue/grey

    It could be but normally this would just burn off in the exhaust. Unburnt diesel would be white smoke with maybe a light blue tint. Unless it's black smoke, this can also be unburnt diesel but due to lack of air usually due to blocked air filter etc. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Needs plugging in really to be sure, you got access to inpa? Could be as simple as a faulty maf. Where abouts are you? Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Smoking blue/grey

    Have you lost any power? Sounds more like a boost leak than a turbo seal with it being grey smoke. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Help! 530D misfire on FIRST start-up.

    Problem is it could be 100 different things, Don't pay for a diagnostic, join the Facebook group for E60, someone near you will have the software, If your near Manchester I can read the codes... Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

    Help! 530D misfire on FIRST start-up.

    I would say it needs plugging in to read any fault codes, there is clearly a fault there so this should show up.
