Question about BMW Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

BMW E90 LCI, after a long distance trip the engine started making a noise. Had the head fixed, then the car was not picking up RPMs, had the computer box changed to the original, car worked fine

After long distance trip the car switched off and wouldn't start. Change fuel pump and the fuel pressure gauge. Which then started but when you hit the gas it would switch off. I changed 2 Vanos gears assuming it was the timing and now the engine has no compression. I have no idea what is going on. Please help

Noise could be timing chain tattle due to tensioner failure, fault now sounds like valve timing wrong after changing vanos, there is special tools to set them up, also check the valvetronic servo motor. Scanning for fault codes will also be very useful

You can't reset the limp home mode, you must take it to the dealer and find out why the computer control is asking for limp to be engaged.

Bmw 2007 e90 320I auto sedan gearbox makes terrible noise and; gets worse uphill


The first thing you need to check is for water contamination in the gearbox oil, if none try filling it with the correct procedure and reset adaptations, if there is water in the gearbox do not bother repairing it at a huge cost, they seldom get it right. Rather look for a good secondhand box that is the same make, the most common is the ZF6HP19

White smoke coming out of my 2005 bmw 320i e90, it mostly happens like a big cloud when on hills and only little on flat surfaces, mechanics can't seem to diagnose it nor I dunno if their being oblivious...


This could be two problems occuring, 1. Head Gasket leaking intermitantly (ie) Replace Head Gasket & skim head. 2. Replace the oil separation Valve or also known as Crank Case ventilation Valve.
This valve opens & closes, can be glued shut with carbon build up. Then when engine comes under load & elevated the oil from crank vent pipe can't escape but events in burning of as white smoke.

There is a ticking noise from standard vw golf engine,


It would not hurt to check it but the loss of oil and the loss of coolant are worrying. I would have a compression test done to check the head gasket and head. The tick may be compression gas escaping at the gasket. That would also account for coolant loss. Have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks. Towing a trailer ( I guess that it had a bit in it) over a long distance at speed ( probably 60 mph or better) places strain on a good engine but if the engine is on par or below then faults appear

Battery drained completely BMW E90 2005 model


Connect your old battery with another battery from another car (WHILE KEEPING ALL CABLES CONNECTED ON BOTH CARS) just user a bridge cable otherwise you'll need. a code to reactivate your BMW again. Try now to start your BMW engine. Now go to the nearest battery dealer to change the battery WHILE KEEPING YOUR ENGINE ON, otherwise you'll need a code to activate your BMW again :)

Good Luck!
