  4. Increased emissions code.

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Misfiring is the first sign that divisions of multiple system under DME do not pass the tolerance and plausibility set by the factory when this engine was manufactured by BMW. What you need to tackle is to first narrow down which system is/are off the spec, determine if the problem is electrical...
  5. Oil Help

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I don't want to ignite another oil discussion like who is wrong or right. Each engine, after many serviceable heat cycles, have tangent off the factory tolerance between moving metals. 5w-30 was the break-in engine oil when it was first manufactured from Germany for tight specifications in...

  7. Last of V10

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion This is probably the reason why we are in love with this car. Even if the car needs so many hands for care and sometimes gets nut expensive, whenever I pull out the beast for a trip, she always present me the biggest smile on my face...

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    Digging the old thread I want to continue our conversation of how each of us in the forum is taking different actions to maintain their 1) vanos (by now, every s85 on the road will have been serviced or refreshed. I want to know how we can prolong their life) 2) SMG (To be honest, I preferred...
  9. How to test idle control valve, throttle actuators with ISTA?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    dan, see my reply to the related post you made earlier. I left you a comment the test usually does not mean anything significant. it does not tell you whether the actual idle actuator is bad or not. since you have a code, I believe the test anyway would recognize the problem with the idle actuator.
  10. Bank 1 idle control valve prone to error, or something more sinister?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    first off, a tag on the connector does not mean the production date of that idle actuator. In fact, connector and idle actuator are sold seperately, either the previous owner was lazy, just exchange the wiring of the actuator just for you to think that idle actuator is recently replaced. what I...

    what's the mileage on this car? if you past the 60,000 miles mark on you dash, should be a problem with fuel filter. when you do, our car has been driven with a fuel pump from bmw for at least 10 years. the electric pump must need some refreshments. Do yourself a favor and swap them both. Fuel...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    anyone who want to report the issue should describe the symptom in detail. what is the mileage on this car?, and the year of the car manufactured?, does the clutch has ever been replaced before? was there any leak found like a puddle beneath the car? have you ever changed your hydraulic fluids...
