SOURCE: how do i adjust the rich/lean fuel mixture cracked intake

You can't do it with out a tech 2 scanner, so your going to have to go back to the Mechanic to have it reprogrammed. As long as it's running rich, your going to have bad fuel economy and will not pass the emission test when you have to have it done. Good luck and glad to know you got your car running almost 100%

Just a thought, behind the front bumper are the securing hardware. Bumper needs to be removed so you can access the fasteners.

Where is the starter located on a 03 325i BMW?


Tucked snugley beneath the intake manifold on the driver side (US) of the engine. I have not yet replaced one on an e46. Bosch starters on small engines generally last a couple hundred thousand miles.
Based on the way it looks and my experience with the previous generation of 3-series BMWs, replacing it will be a real PITA. If you pay a dealer to do it, be ready for a bill on the order of $1000. If you pay an independent shop, I would guess you will pay around $700. If you do it yourself, be ready to remove and replace your intake manifold, which is no small task on an e46.
The starter itself is about $250 new or $150 remanufactured.

How to replace an intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy


Hello,

Here is a detailed summary on the procedure of how to replace the intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy;
REMOVING THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD(PLENUM)
STEP 1 Disconnect Battery (may not be absolutely necessary, but a good practice to avoid shorting a positive wire to ground).


STEP 2 Remove serpentine belt.

STEP 3 Drain the coolant.

STEP 4 Remove air cleaner ducting and disconnect wires.

STEP 5 Disconnect throttle linkage and bracket.

STEP 6 Disconnect cruise control cable.

STEP 7 Remove brake booster vacuum hose at manifold.

STEP 8 Remove PCV hose.

STEP 9 Remove ignition coil and bracket.

STEP 1O Remove purge solenoid and bracket.

STEP 11 Relieve fuel pressure at test port.

STEP 12 Remove fuel lines and bracket.

STEP 13 Remove upper intake manifold.

REMOVING THE LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD
STEP 1 Remove the distributor and label the spark plug wires.

STEP 2 Remove heater hoses and bypass hose.

STEP 3 Remove upper radiator hose.


STEP 4 Remove EGR valve?

STEP 5 Remove sensors and bracket on right side.

STEP 6 Remove EGR tube, clamp and bolt.

STEP 7 Remove PCV valve (and replace).

STEP 8 Unbolt A/C compressor and move it aside.

STEP 9 Loosen compressor bracket and slide forward, but do not remove it.

STEP 10 Remove alternator bracket bolt (or remove alternator and set aside)

STEP 11 Unplug all vacuum lines from intake manifold.


STEP 12 Unplug all electrical connectors from manifold.

STEP 13 Take note of the intake manifold bolts and mark the location of the bolts.


STEP 14 Remove intake manifold bolts, and manifold.

STEP 15 Clean mating surfaces

THE MAIN INSTALLATION
STEP1 Set the new gaskets in place and apply silicone to flat areas on front and rear of engine block.

STEP2 Apply thread locking compound to manifold bolts.

STEP 3 Install the manifold and tighten bolts to 35 ft-lbs, in proper sequence.

STEP4 Install the distributor.

STEP5 Install the upper intake manifold.



The remaining installation procedures are basically the reverse of removal.


Have a nice day.

How do i adjust the idle? its running at 800rpm right now and dies if my foot is off the gas for too long


I don't think there is any adjustment for idle.
Sugestion:
Take idle control valve out and clean it with carb cleaner (you'll see black staff inside on turning door,you may spray a little bit of WD40 on the door after you clean it but blow it with compressed air after) also clean throttle body inside ,around flap and edges of the flap. Over the years , oil fumes create deposite of kind of gum substence which clogging up the idle valve and clearance between flap and throttle body , reducing amount of air coming through and bringing idle down.
For this job I usually take throttle body out , make sure to plug water hoses going to the T/B preventing coolant loss. Take extra care removing T/B , there is a gasket between T/B and intake manifold ,you'll have to reuse it , so try not to brake it as it will be stuck on either T/B or intake manifold or on both , use raisor blade to separate it on one side.

Tuned-Port Injection problem


If foreign matter is inside the intake manifold the intake manifold must be removed to clear out all debre or damage to the intake valves and pistons will occur, use a strong vacuum and a long magnet to extract any debree from the intake ports after removing the intake manifold, and then blow out all passages on the intake manifold itself with compressed air to remove debre before reinstalling the intake manifold, make sure you drain the coolant before removing the intake manifold also before attempting this job it is a good idea to purchase a Haynes repair manual to walk you through the procedure.

Your EGR Valve is clogged and has to be changed. I have tried removing, cleaning and replacing it, this only lasts from one hour to one week.

The fault code 'P3103 V157 - Intake Manifold Flap' comes up on the diagnostics, and if you look in your fuse box (next to the battery) you will see a blown 10amp fuse. This is a sure sign that your EGR (or Intake Manifold Flap) is stuck.

This unit costs about £235 - £250.
Good luck mate
