Question about 2000 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

97 BMW 528i

What are the most problems you hear about this model. I about to purchase one and its from my mechanic Ive known for 5-6 years now.
He's telling me its in mint condition runs smooth no problems no leaks etc. Ive seen it and drove it ..it rides nice. Its not so smooth as it has winter tires on it at the moment. Other than that its nice. Just wondering your input into this model.
Thanks, J

He should have all the service receipts, ask for them. A friend had expensive problems with his transmission. Remember, he wants to sell it to you rather than you want to buy it from him. Keep the power on your side and don't be afraid to offer a really low price. You'll hear one of two answers: yes or no. Its not the last beemer anyway.

What is the meaning and solution of code P1188 on a bmw 528i of 2000?


P1188 is a fault on the pre-cat o2 sensors (reading out of scale)

Most common problem is an air leak into the engine (failed gasket or vacuum hose) or faulty air flow meter. I would not replace the o2 sensors until the other things have been checked first (10 years as a mechanic I have only ever replaced 2).

Check your engine for sucking noises, broken vacuum lines, etc. otherwise a mechanic will need to read the live data from the Air flow meter. Bosch AFM unit should hit around 500 on that model at full throttle.

What should i look for when buying a 97 bmw 528i. Im about to purchase one off of my machanic ive been going to over 6yrs. He siad its in excelent condition and theres nothing wrong with it. it look mint...


Take the car for a test drive, around town, and on the freeway. Notice how well and when it shifts, listen for any unusual noises and rattles when hitting bumps. Have the car put on a lift and check the underneath side for any wets spots of pssoble leaks. If possible, remove the wheels and check the brakes and struts.

I have a 97 528i BMW recently Ive been having problems starting it . When I turn the key it will try to start but wont actually turn over. I have a new battery so Im thinkin its the starter maybe??


It is most likely the immobiliser rather than starter if it does try to start, is it automatic or manual gearbox? If automatic, than try to take the negative cable of the battery and leave for 15-20 minutes without connection, than switch lights on before reconnecting the negative, this resets the computer so it might help. If it is manual, try a push start if the car starts and runs than it is the starter problem, if not than it will be immobiliser problem.
