I think you have the wrong clutch housing installed or the flywheel spacing from the block is wrong. When the switch was made to manual from auto there should have been something fabricated to shim the starter into the correct alignment with the new flywheel's ring gear the same as it used to align with the flexplate. Good luck with this one

Standard oil was put in the car when I bought it whereas it had always had BMW approved synthetic. Will this oil switch damage the engine/other


Yes, it could damaged your engine,drain and replace filter with what kind was on before,always use synthetic oil,I take my Toyota tundra to dealer to get oil change,and they scan the whole system for free and give me a print out of the results,if something is wrong,they will tell me and how much or I can fix my self.That's the best place to get oil change,hidden benefits.They told me once my license plate bulb was burnt out,they replaced for a dollar.

My bmw e30,325i box shape doesn't spark at all,i just discovered that the negative terminal wire from the coil is not connected,and i still dont know where it should be connected.now it looks like it...


the negative terminal of the battery SHOULD NOT BE connected in the ignition coil. the negative terminal of the ignition coil is connected to the condenser in your distributor.

1. make sure that your spark plug is working. try using other sparkplugs to check.
2. check if your high tension wires are working
3. if numbers 1 and 2 are ok, then just replace your iginition coil.
