  • Maybe your crank sensor or too your speed sensor(same part numbers X 2!) are starting to act up. These start to break up as soon as their resistance starts to go up more than their specified parameters. Usually these breakdown during the Summer time as the hotter weather fatigues them by increasing the resistance(heat). Give that a try. It could be many things but start there as a...

  • If you do have very large hands and to boot thick fingers I would think best to remove the intake plenium. It was a little difficult for me on my own 83 528e as I too have large hands but thin enough fingers. I do not know how similar the fuel rail with your car and my car are as it stands. Loosen the extremes of the fuel rail and lift up straight at different portions of the fuel...

  • Can you use a small modified Allen wrench where you can hook on to the broken piece stuck inside? Modified in the sense of grinding away the end on the Allen wrench but not all where you still have an "L" shape but no longer as exaggerated at the small end. This might work but you need to figure out which is the smallest Allen wrench you can fit into that hole. Sincerely, Joel T...

  • Look at the incoming hose that is at the firewall that connects the hard steel line to the fuel rail. This hose is a small flex hose but with age becomes brittle with heat. Are the bolts that secure your fuel rail tight enough but not too tight either? Maybe one of the fuel injector o-rings is bad? Sincerely, Joel T.

  • Hi to all members, According to the testing information that I have received for these sensors I have the following. The harness on the sensor side has three wires, a yellow, black, and blue. The YELLOW/BLACK wires on the sensor side are to have anywhere from 860-1,060 ohms. The BLUE/YELLOW and too again, the BLUE/BLACK wires should be testing out at 100,000 ohms. When I probe the...

  • Keep it simple and look at this way. You want to have enough torque on your rims that it holds onto the flange. Too much torque at 100 ft.lb. and you are going to get yourself in a bind when you want to take off that rim later on in an emergency. Too little, I would say at around 50 ft.lb. and sooner or later something is going to start backing up that either you end up in a wreck...

  • Dear group members, On my 1983 528e I am getting 6 volts from the 3 wired harness leading up to the throttle position switch. 6 volts from the middle wire out to either of the two wires next to it. I am under the impression that the input voltage should be 12 volts. Can anyone help me out on this subject? And yes, I have been having drivability problems with this car as I do not...

  • Hi, The only thing I can say is a German spark plug with a German car. I have not used anything else so I really can not say that it will not work as you have a part number that matches with your setup. However, it has come to my minor experience that for example on a Japanese car a Nippo-Denso and NGK plug so I would suggest a Beru or a Bosch plug for your car. It does not have to...
