  1. S85 throttle actuator and top end refresh

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    My '07 M6 with 90k miles is going into 'limp mode' with code '01146' on my cheap reader. I think one of my throttle actuators is bad. I'm wondering if I should do a top end 'refresh' like what should be done with non-M models? On my M54's I would replace valve cover gaskets, spark plugs...
  2. Oil leak through exhaust manifold?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    After removing the front subframe for my rod bearing job, I noticed pretty distinct signs of oil weeping from the studs of the exhaust port of cylinder # 1 on the passenger side of the vehicle. A lot of the oil in the surrounding area is from a previous leak through the oil cooler that didn't...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion

  10. 2006 M5 Rattle at Idle

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hello everyone, I just bought a beautiful M5 which is now my project. When I start it up, it makes a loud rattle only at idle and stays like that whether warm or cold. After I rev it just to about 1500 rpm, it's completely normal. It drives real smooth but if I push it to redline, it throws an...

  13. Vanos Solenoid Issues? P1532 and P0025

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hey all, I did some work on my 2000 M5's Vanos solenoids (bank 2) a few days ago— I replaced the o-rings since the old ones were causing the Vanos to leak oil profusely. Once I replaced the o-rings, the oil leaks stopped. However, I suddenly lost some power and the engine started running a...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    So my 06 went into our nearest BMW shop because I was starting to hear what I was thinking was the vanos noise. They verify the car is showing a code for vanos low pressure as well as dtml pump. (Estimate at that time to do the work 6ish) We were neck deep in putting an addition on our house...
