Hello — BMW E38 forum

Hello

My friend has an e38(v12) 1995. The car is not responding to the remote control key !

And the security indicator on dashboard doesn't flash at any cases .

And also we tried to reprogram the key (press and hold unlock button and three time the lock). , still no respond !

The remote key indicator is flashing .what is responsible for the key control inside the car? A receiver or sth?

Can i use injector cleaner in my 335

%d comments
  • Think vincent is saying yes....it fixes evedything and works perfect

  • Fuels are super clean these days. Better of focusing on what protects your harder working expensive engine components. Additives like this (German quality for a German car) are great addition, I've read up about them for years and used them and driven every car hard and they never fail. Oil companies and manufactures don't invest super protection into everyday oils because performance is a tiny market compared to the everyday driver who doesn't give a shit. http://www.liqui-moly.com.au/products/mos2-frictio n-reducer-2781/

    http://motorex.com.au/what-is-mos2/

    You don't have to but for under $20 bucks per oil change....fingers crossed never had any issues with my engines in 20 years.

  • I used injectors cleaner before and didn't notice any difference when they are going bad u need to replace them nothing work

07 e92 N54 manual trans and Dinan Stage 2 tune I feel like it has too much... — BMW forum 135i 335i 535i 550i

07 e92 N54/manual trans and Dinan Stage 2 tune. I feel like it has too much turbo lag and not enough power. I've gone WOT and had the CEL come on then go away upon restart. Looking for more HP through a tune. Tempted to try DCI's but that's about all I want to do for mods. I don't have a local BMW dealer but want the Dinan tune off of there so I can go MHD or JB4. I don't want to stack tunes but if the MHD overwrites the Dinan I would go that route. It has the OEM oil cooler also. Thanks!

%d comments
  • JB4 is great too, especially if u want to run meth. Most of those guys get an MHD Backend flash as well.

  • Either way you go, you are in good hands.

  • I don't plan on methanol. I need to research the MHD but have downloaded the app and understand I need a cable and to pay for the tune I want. Anything else I should know? I have a couple OBD to USB cables already.. Maybe one of those will work.

My 09 335 is about to turn 80k miles and I'd like to do as much preventative maintenance as possible. I've already replaced waterpump/t-stat, plugs and coils all within the last 15k miles. I also plan on walnut blasting the valves myself within the coming weeks. What are some other things I'm missing besides these gaskets: valve cover, throttle body, intake mani, oil filter housing, oil pan, and RB PCV? Any help is appreciated!

%d comments
  • Thanks, Mark. I also read to replace the hose at the same time!

  • Oil pan is not preventative. When you do that youll probably want to do more than just the gasket.

  • Jordan can you elaborate?

Quick question I got an 02 BMW 330i it over heated and then died while my girlfriend was driving it, wouldn't start after it cooled down but it cranks like it wants to, does anyone know possible issues?

%d comments
  • Check it and if that's the problem, fix it or tow it to a shop and have them do it. In my case, my tensioner seized and snapped the belt. My car red lined(over heated) in a matter of what felt like seconds. Mine is an 02 330i auto trans as well. Fixed the belt. Good as new.

  • Thanks I'll definitely look into that because that sounds like what she was describing!

  • I didn't try to start it again and you shouldn't either. These engines are near bullet proof but can still be done in. The mechanic that worked on my car said the computer has a safety mechanism that will shut the car down when it gets too hot.

  • If you have an airbag steering wheel then there are 2 x T30 screws at the back of the wheel. One each side. That releases the airbag and connectors for it. Remove wires from it (only with battery OFF!!), then set aside. Then there is a single 16mm in the center for the wheel itself

Dear BMW — BMW i3

Dear BMW..

Don't get me wrong.. I love my i3.. but seriously the telemetry system at best is "somewhat" flawed, at worst it plainly sucks.

Yesterday I drove back to the city. I reset the trip-counter when I unplugged the car in Lake Arrowhead, I proceeded to do a slow climb to BigBear, had dinner (*unfortunately Stillwells restaurant is best in the snow tourist season). after dinner I did a slow climb to the ridge and then proceeded to re-coup charge on the way down the 18 to the 210... drafted a couple big-rigs on the way down the 210 to Hollywood.. and pulled off in SilverLake with 10% left on the charge.

HERE is the problem. Total range according to the odometer 126.7 miles since I unplugged the car. the REX was not used, *I DID start the rex in Silverlake to make it back to Hollywood.

But on my iRemote I get this BS. Distance last trip 102, thats about right from BigBear, electric distance driven 26 miles.. WTF.?

Thats simply so completely mind-numbingly WRONG.

Fun fact checks, here is the car in BigBear, a shot of the dash at the TOP of the ridge leaving BigBear, before I re-gen on the downhill.. and again in SilverLake, I could not have driven almost 90 miles without some re-gen.. but its been 126miles since I charged the car.. BMW whats not registering right?

  • George Fotopoulos - I have the display set to show charge/discharge numerically and believe me, it's showing 60kwhr/100km charging when I brake. (I am in New Zealand, so pardon the units - the point remains though.)

  • Good point, Philip Adamson. I see the same on my display. Conclusion: it regens during braking.

  • Thanks Mary!

  • ecufast chip,335i cooler+gfb dump valve, sorunsuz sıkıntısız.

  • Eğer güç arttırımı istiyorsanız, chip veya box ne derseniz diyin bunun yanında intercoolerı değiştirmekte fayda var. Araçların motorları en son dayanıklılık testlerinden geçip son haliyle kullanıcıya sunuluyor. Çip gibi herhangi bir güç değişimi motorun güç dengesini bozarak motorda hasarlara yol açar. Bu bir ay da sürebilir bir yıl da. Motorlarda soğutma çok önemli heleki aşırı beslemeli bir motorsa

I have a question, I am wanting to put some Dinan mid pipes on my 2011 M3, but Dinan no longer makes the Stage 2 tune that would eliminate the emissions warning. Is there a way to turn off the warning light with out effecting my current Dinan stage 1 tune or the cars overall performance? I have contacted my BMW service department and they could not answer my question nor could Dinan.

%d comments
  • Totally awesome thank you

  • Call Dinan as they can possibly help you out with a update on the tune. Lamda spacers are a hit or miss. Some get them to work and some dont.

  • you can get a tune from a different company to solve thay problem.
