1992 BMW 525i shaking while idling and not fully engaging upon acceleration

1992 BMW 525i model, manual 5 speed. Car only has 131xxx miles on it. The car starts fine but idles rough and has a shaky sound. Check Engine light comes on periodically but turns off after driving a few minutes. When I accelerate the engine does not fully engage and it comes close to dying when I release the clutch. While driving at low speeds or while stopped, the car shakes and rides rough, like it is having trouble continuing. My dad drove it and suspected a misfire, but he is no mechanic. Any ideas?

I had the same issue with my 2000 528i. You more than likely need to have the Vanos seals replaced. BMW will tell you that the Vanos unit needs to be replaced but the problem is more than likely isolated to the OEM seals that shipped with the Vanos. This issue has been reported by several BMW owners. This issue has been thoroughly documented and reported to BMW in an effort to seek a corrective fix. Since BMW failed to address the problem, the guys that investigated the issue started their own company providing superior Vanos seals to the deficient OEM Vanos seals.

The company is Beisan Systems, LLC. I ordered their Vanos seal kit and had them installed at a local BMW performance shop for less than half of what BMW wanted to charge me for a Vanos replacement with the same faulty seals. Besian also provides step-by-step DIY instructions; if you have the time.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 523i shaking in the mornings

Strange, it sounds like you've got a dead spark plug, but that would be continuous, not only in the morning, the other explanation could be that the engine management is injecting too much fuel, flooding the cylinder, and wetting the spark plug, which would explain why you need to wait 5 mins for the fuel to evaporate. Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes to reset the EMS, if that doesn't help, get to a workshop and let them check the EMS with a computer, the electric choke may be sending the wrong signals to the EMS. Hope this helps!

Bmw transmission 525i transmission


The vibration is caused by worn driveshaft parts. The BMW driveshaft is flexible and has a rubber universal joint called a Guibo and a center support bearing that must be replaced when worn or old. The parts are about $100 (60 for the universal joint and about 35 for the support if you buy them from autopartswarehouse.com )and the labor is about $250 at a good independent repair shop.

We have a 1995 BMW 525i. I need to replace some


My bmw dealer said that the Mass Air Flow Sensor needed to be replaced. The car would not run. It will start, idle. upon excelleration it chokes and dies. The "check engine" light is on. I disconnected the MAS and the car runs fantastic. SOOOO, I ordered a MAS and installed it. Reconnected the unit and the same problem occured. Is there a fuse relay under the hood or back seat that I can replace?
Thanks

I am assuming your vehicle is an automatic

if so...can you get the vehicle to shift manually?

when was the last time the trans was flushed?

if you do not know, do this first before seeking assistance from a trans shop

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.


On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration


It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.
