SOURCE: 96 bmw 740il misfire

This is a pretty common problem. I would change your valve cover gaskets. They run around ~ 50 bucks. If they are bad it will leak oil into spark plug well and cause a misfire. Very known on the 740.. Also if tune was not anytime not too long ago id change spark plugs while you at it. Then clear the computer and if you still get misfire on 8 try changing the ignition coil which is right about the cylinder with cylinder ignition coil 5. clear the computer. if you get random misfire and misfire cyclinder 5 after then its your ignition coil. parts store runs around 100 bucks

SOURCE: 2001 BMW 740iL is sputtering when I accelarate and shaky when idl

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.

SOURCE: I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL.

Depends how competent you are here and what sort of tools you have.You will also need to replace oil filter if you wish to replace oil within the engine.The oil has to be drained from underneath the engine and allow it to sit for few hours while draining as this will ensure all the deposits at the bottom comes off.

How do I reset my alarm on my 1999 316i bmw ( e36 ) ?


Wow this I recently delt with, there is a weird way to reset what bmw calls the lockdown mode or something like that, you use the key in the passeger door in a certain way. find a shop with michell1 or call the dealer and they should be able to tell you. but this is only if you particular car has entered this manuel lockdown mode. I found this strange as the bmw i was dealing with according to mitchell1 actually manually takes the door lock linkage apart in the lock assembly so that the alarm computer must be reset for the locks to function even manually!!

I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL. How do I do this? Do I need special tools?


Changing oil in the BMW 740iL is no different than other cars. If you are not comfortable with this find a trusted German Automotive mechanic to do it for you.
You will need a large socket to remove the oil filter housing cover. The BMW tool is expensive. You can use large channel lock pliers with a smooth jaw or place a small strip of cardboard (like cereal box) over the teeth on regular pliers so you don't damage the cover.

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
