    Bmw e61 m54b25 long crank problem

    Seems like a timing issue to me. All the symptoms fit.

    Running Temperature / Thermostat Issue?

    true, however i expect it to do at least 30mpg in traffic as a 530d lci. 23-25mpg is 6-cylinder petrol territory.

    Running Temperature / Thermostat Issue?

    to be honest i have not driven too many miles yet, however I do expect that at least I meet was is quoted on the car specs. But yes you are right, doing the actual calculation is probably the most accurate way. I have a couple of parts to change and then will see.

    Running Temperature / Thermostat Issue?

    Hello; by resetting I mean deleting the transmission and engine adaptations. So mine tend to hold the gears too much in traffic, which is a killer to the mpg here. I will definitely do it for the transmission. A bit scared to touch the engine. I got to know from here. You need the INPA or ISTA-D software to do it.

    I wish mine will return 35mpg...would be great. @GoNz0 - do you think that if the engine adaptations are reset, it will improve?

    Yes I think its inbuilt into the tcu since from pictures i saw there is the imei number on it. Actually it is a built in mobile phone.

    @Deviant - do you pay for subscription for the sos to work? and do you have bmw online and bmw assist working on your car? by paying the yearly fee?

    Bloody SOS call malfunction...

    thank you @Deviant Interesting that you coded it out and still works when you press the button. I will start step by step but at the moment it is not the priority as i have bigger annoying problems to sort first. But eventually i will turn to it as well. ...it is more a pride thing...when a BMW hater gets in the car...the first thing they say would be...Ahhh you have an ERROR!! anyways....i always say that my subscription is expired and I am not willing to pay it ..might be the case i dont know.

    Bloody SOS call malfunction...

    Hello @Deviant Thanks for replying. So basically i have everything working fine including Bluetooth. CD changer i dont know cos i never used it - i will check it out. When i press the SOS button it also tries to connect and shows on the iDrive..etc...but of course it does not do the call. I think you can code it out with NCS Expert? Do you know which module it is for the SOS and location? maybe cable is faulty.
