I changed the right side motor mount and after the repair, car will not crank. Battery is good. I can hot wire the car and it will run, however, it will not crank from the switch. The electronics Immobilizer control relay is not being energized.

Hi, the replacement cam shaft sensor I have got is a different diameter at the end to the old one, the old one is stepped.

The dealer said he fixed the engine idle problem but as I drove it off the the lot the same thing happened again. Is this normal after repairs?

I purchased a new AUC sensor to install in my ’07 750 Li. By all accounts, it is mounted to the upper fan shroud on the passenger’s side. I have spent the last 2 hours searching for it, and have removed all the components that I should need to in order to find it. It appears that it is suppose to be mounted in the area marked, but there is no sensor, no wire…nothing but the fan motor wiring (the dangling connector is for the mass air flow sensor). Does anyone have any ideas where this is located on the vehicle?? I have looked around the cabin filters/firewall as well and nothing.

Hi

I have a 2005 reg BMW 320d completed 133000 miles 6 speed manual gear box. I have already changed the clutch and the flywheel a year ago and still under warranty. I recently started having problem in putting the car to 1st gear in the morning and sometimes the 1st gear gets stiff and hard to come out as well. No issues with any other gears selecting. When the car is warm there are no issues in selecting the gears. And also I have tried when the engine is off and have no problem in selecting any gears.

Can you please advice what will be the problem as the dealer is saying its the gear box and i have spoken to one of the engineering company have deals with the reconditioning the gearboxes they said nothing wrong with the gear box its the clutch.

Regards
Dalbir

Hi , i am wondering if you can advise me. I have a e70 x5 3.0 Diesel. I upgraded rims exactly 1 year ago to 20″ staggered Vossen rims . Yesterday the Diff broke and i am in the process of trying to source a new diff .

My mechanic is suggesting that the cause of the diff (rear axle drive) failure is the wider Rims and tyres that i had put on. I am not sure since i see the sport package came with those same sized rims and tyress i used.

Do you agree that the wider rims and tyres caused the diff (rear axle drive) to fail ? I am worried as i dont want the same to happen again.

I will admit that since i upgraded , i normally get the traction light blinking at time when the road is slightly uneven when accelerating.

If you can advise me i will be very thankful.

Thanks
Khemy
