Hi, 

I'm really hoping someone can help.

 

I have had issues with my e12 m535i not running correctly, it stutters when idling and misses sometimes when accelerating.

 

I initially thought it was a problem with the AFM, but having replaced that the issues remain.

 

After further research it led me to start looking at the distributor, thinking there could be a fault there.

 

When checking this, the middle input to the distributor seemed loose, and when inspecting the cable the end piece has completely broken.

 

Its obviously been bent by someone in the past, which made it weak and it has now broken.

 

I therefore need to replace either just the end piece if possible, or the whole cable.

 

Does anyone know where I could get these parts from?

 

I'm new to all of this so any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks

 

Pat

Hi Mick

Thanks for your response, much appreciated and very useful.

 

The piece that is broken is the connector at the end of the cable that connects into the distributor cap.

 

Based on the diagram the parts I'm looking at are 2, which is the wire which I have, 7 the suppression socket and circular connector which are both intact, and connect to the coil, so I'm thinking i just need number 6.

 

However, when I've searched the part it doesn't look like what was previously connected? 

 

If anyone has a picture from there own e12 m535i that would really help, as I'm not sure now if the previous part used was correct?

 

Thanks

 I should have a set of lead's and disi cap on the shelf, I will have a look for you.

 

 Also Joss has his apart at the moment, so he will be able to check

Thanks Tim

 

I have ordered the cable which connects the coil to the distributor so hoping that will help.

 

If you do have any leads and a cap please let me know as I may well be interested in them depending on what difference the cable makes.

 

I have noticed a bit of rusting on the rotor aswell, so will clean that up too to see if it helps.

 

The last resort would be to replace the distributor itself, but hoping to avoid that.

 

Jess, if you have any hints / tips / advice / pictures that you think would help that would be brilliant.

 

Many thanks

Hi, does anyone know where i can get the correct rotor arm part from please?

 

I have ordered a new distributor cap and going to replace the rotor as well, but the part number isn't clear as some websites seem to state different numbers?

 

Has anyone replaced their rotor arm recently?

 

Thanks

Thanks Joe, that's great and it was that part number I'd searched for.

 

What was confusing me is that on the list of part numbers, it shows

 

Rotor rev limiting 1211304909

And also rotor Non rev limiting 12111360306

 

I just wasnt sure which one.

 

Thanks again for your help

After fitting a new distributor cap and rotor, along with a new cable which links the ignition coil to the distributor, my car sadly wont start.

 

It sounds as normal when trying to turnover, but it just wont spark into action.

 

I've turned my attention to testing the ignition coil, and just wondered if anyone knows what the readings should be?

 

The primary resistance readings range from 1.2 to 2 ohms 

 

The secondary resistance is consistent at 5,190 ohms

 

I've tried to search for a new coil online with limited success, as was hoping to find further details.

 

Does anyone know if these readings look ok?

 

Thanks

Hi PatMo

I would suggest you open a new thread about your car or just create a thread with your question where you can ask questions and post about it.  This thread is about Collective-frictions car.

 

Your issue could be with the pulse transmitter of the electronic ignition. The pulse transmitter is in the distributor and controls the spark so intermittent problems or no start can be caused by it or its wiring.
