Question about 1992 BMW 5 Series

92 BMW 525i shudders at 45MPH+ while braking or driving on rough

My '92 BMW 525i shudders at 45MPH+ while either braking or going over rougher sections of road. The car does not shudder while under that speed nor do the brakes feel in any way unresponsive at any point. Braking is smooth and quick. I just bought the car a week ago and have driven it at 70MPH on the highway without any shudder, the highway was smooth and I did not brake when I tested it then. However, the majority of the time when I brake at 55MPH+ the steering wheel and car shudder pretty bad but they do not shudder all the time when at these speeds. If I brake somewhat hard or hit a rough part of the road at these speeds I get the shudder but can normally correct it by either slowing down for a bit or getting to smoother road. My tire tread is getting fairly low but is not low enough to cause this in my opinion. The handling of the car is very solid apart from this. Any thoughts?

What Gearbox should be in a 1991 BMW 525i E34


Hello,

The safest way for you to know which gearbox fits your car (second hand) you first have to go to a parts shop with your VIN and get the code and the model for your gearbox.

Don't just rely on car year and engine power.

Hope this helps

Location for fuel pump on 92 525i bmw


Typically, you will find the fuel pump for a BMW 525 located under an access panel in the trunk. Remove the contents of the trunk, remove the floor/spare tire cover and a metal access panel will be visible on the floor being held in by several small bolts. The panel is about 4"x6" in size. Remove the bolts, carefully pry up the panel (it has some sticky sealing material) and the fuel pump mounted on top of the gas tank will be visible with fuel lines entering/exiting it. This is where it was for my 1990 525i.

Driving my 92 525i bmw on freeway when it all broke loose my Power Steering and then all the lights on dash when on. Also the car over heated. What could have happen?


Serpentine belt broke. A serpentine belt drive runs everything: power steering, ac, alternator (electrical power), and the water pump (explains the overheating). I'd bet anything that your belt broke.
