Answers and questions: bmw series 5 camshaft system
I have a 1988 325is and I was wondering about putting a performance camshaft
in it. Does anyone know if this would increase the power by very much Im guessing it would have pretty cool sound to it but if I wanted a bunch of noise and no power I would have just installed a performance exhaust system
. My mechanic has worked at a bmw
dealership for 20 years and he told me that I would never be able to
2001 525i Sport Wagon 43k miles Code for Exhaust camshaft

Seriously I like to know these things. I just replaced mine this morning after the ol P0369. My guess is that it senses the oil temperature and makes adjustments to something How far out is this What does position have to do with anything BTW I removed the radiator fan to make room for my clumsy hands. The screw is a 5mm allen head not a Torx bit for anyone who cares to DIY. Im relieved to say that
It does just what it sounds like it does - measures the position of the exhaust camshaft . The camshaft itself will have a little magnet on it that the sensor picks up on each rotation. First all cars with electronicdistributorless ignition systems have CRANKshaft position sensors (our car also has one of these). This measures where the crank is and with that information tells the ECU when to fire
Hello all This is my first time using this forum and i was wondering if anybody can help me out with this problem. I recently took my car to bmw
to have a diagnostic test on why check engine light came on. It came out with camshaft
sensor fault fault code 0041 catalytic converter fault fault code 00EA and also control-module reset fault code 0033. The problem with the car was it kept cutting off sometime
So i took it to autozone to get a diagnostic test and turns out the camshaft sensor is still giving fault problems. Do the system reset itself after i installed the new sensor or do i have to bring it in to bmw to set the check engine light
Hello All I replaced my entire coolant system

Id also start with camshaft position sensor. But first Id make sure all these things are plugged in and the contacts not soaked in coolant or otherwise fouled. Clear the codes and see what comes back. The coil pack can be swapped with another to see if the code moves with it indicating it is in fact the problem.

Hi Guys Got a biggie question for you My 2004 530i is just now topping 130000 and it has been a love affair from the start - now though I begin recalling the cooling system
blowups I experienced with my 98 M3. As you all know we needed to replace most cooling sytem components as early as 50000 miles and certainly by 100K. How about the E60 Same issues I currently have no symptoms at all but it is my
system on these cars anyways I know a coolant recharge has been recommended on my 08 535 w 35k miles but so far as I know they havent recommended replacing any parts. When to start replacing parts Thats the question I would like answered. If a component gives you some kind of warning before failing then its OK to wait until the warning. From personal experience from the E46 world (1999-2005 3 series)
I recently had a mechanic replace the secondary air pump air valve electric control valve and rubber hose (total cost of 1050) because a P0491 and P0492 Check Engine code appeared. After the mechanic cleared the codes the car ran for 1 day before the Engine light and same codes (P0491 and P0492) returned There is nothing else to replace. Anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this code problem
Several weeks ago the OBD reader displayed three codes P0344 - camshaft Position Sensor P0491 and P0492 which are related to the secondary air system. Shortly after reading the codes the car would not start. My son replaced the OEM pulse generatorcamshaft position sensor and was able to get the car running. The codes were erased and have not returned. Is there a direct relationship between the earlier diagnostic codes (P0491 and P0492) and replacing the camshaft position sensor (P0344)
Hi everyone Got back from a ski trip and the car has trouble maintaining idle at cold start. The car was home and wasnt running for several days (its cold here in Chicago). By the way its behaving looks like its a camshaft
sensor failure. I had one of them go around 80K and now I have 130K on the car. But here is the problem. Bentley E46 manual that I bought last October is MISSING PAGES And guess

Hi guys I tackled the CCV system
today in about 6 hours with many breaks in between to watch the WGC match play and grab bites to eat. I would say that I worked about 3-4 hours to complete the job not including the time it took to prepare and clean up my work area. This was for a first-timer with some moderate mechanical skills. I used Fudmans 16 step guide along with BavAutos 3-part youtube videos
But the idle is not a problem. It holds steady at around 750. I only noticed once or twice that it dipped below that number coming to a stop but quickly adjusted itself back to the normal range. I attribute this to the computer adjusting itself to the new CCV and a DISA that may be working properly. The old DISA definitely had a broken flap so it should have been useless at idle (flap not closing but

Ok cars been running a little rough. Starting hard a little when its cold Im getting throttle lag on acceleration and it feels a little like its not quite in the right gear sometimes. I ran a Peake ODB-II scan and came back with a code for a intake camshaft
position sensor. I got an Ekon aftermarket sensor from Pelican Parts and put it in about 3 weeks ago. The symptoms immediately seemed to go away
I bit the bullet and replaced the Ekon CPS with an OEM bmw sensor a couple of days ago. I havent plugged the Peake back in to see if the code cleared but the engine is performing much better. Im not going to haggle with PP about returning the old one it was 50 and thats a cheap lesson on when not to use aftermarket parts. Ive already replaced my VANOS seals with a set from Beisan systems...so Im good there. Thanks. Cameron
Well today was a good Monday. I go outside to start my 99 540i and it sounds like Fred Sanfords truck. It is running real rough and knocking. Almost sounds like the exhaust is gone. Anyway I used the Peake Code Reader and I got a couple of faults. The 1st fault was camshaft
Vanos Control Cyl 1-4 and then I got two faults for knock sensors Knock Sensor Cyl 1-2 & Knock Sensor Cyl5-6. I cleared the faults
sent me to oemparts.com and i got this for the 998-1298 540i The 540i does not really have a vanos unit as you have noticed. It uses a gear with some type of enclosed pinion to change the cam timing. Its not the same type of system that the single vanos 6cyl cars use and is not easily replaced or repaired. Here is a photo of the system 1 in the picture is the vanos part... httpwww.realoem.combmwshowparts...65&hg11&fg25
Hello Has anybody in this forum tried to adjust the Dual Vanos system
without the factory or aftermarket VANOS tool set The TDC tool and the compressed air vanos tool are cheap enouh for most people but the double vanos tool set is 450 I was just curious as to whether anyone figured a way around it kinda like they did with getting around the camshaft
removal procedure without special tooling.
Hi guys Last night i replaced the intake side camshaft
position sensor. After the replacement the code cleared. Today while driving I got two codes one for exchaust camshaft
position sensor and another for intake. My question is is it common to second sensor fail right after the first one and why the code for intake side appeared again. Is the posibillity that the new sensor got damaged during replacement Thanks For any advice....
Have you replaced the Vanos seals in the engine. The Besian systems write up for camshaft sensor codes can be because of failing Vanos seals. Check their website for further details.
You think that could be the problem Did it happen to anyone here. I read the Besian systems DIY and first they recommend changing the sensors to eliminate that problem if it does not help it is a 100% vanos seals.
The seals control valve timing--the sensors react what the proper timing should be--if the timing is off then the sensors will not give proper info to the ignition system. Thats what I suspect your problem is. This is something that needs to be changed in all of these vehicles. Once you tear into the job and see just how bad these seals have become hard a plastersized you will wonder how the car ran
A buddy of mine told me that he put M3 Cams in his 2001 530i. I know this can be done with an M5254 2.8L but on a 3.0 Can anyone out there clarify this

Hi all First things first. A BIG thanks to you all for the content and DIY in this forum Am new to bmw
and have come in via a second hand machine so all the hints and tips for DIY in here has been really fantastic to read and am sure will come in handy. I hope to contribute over time as my machine needs work. So I took a 2002 530i for a test drive last month and was greatly impressed with the way it
It might not be a bad idea to replace the camshaft Position Sensor(s). One of them (intake I believe it is) requires much of the same disassembly as what youll do with the seals. One word of advice is to only use genuine bmw CPS as other aftermarket brands are unreliable.
Hi guys hate to post a problem as my first post but cant seem to find an answer anywhere. So I have a 1995 525iT automatic with 133k on the clock. It runs pretty well except about a month ago it started to develop this hesitation and stuttering with any more than 30% throttle from off-idle up to 3k rpm. There are no codes and I checked the MAF when unplugged the car idles a bit more rough but otherwise
models have a valve on fuel rail to confirm adequate pressure.......my 94 540 does not so dont feel bad if yours doesnt either. Fuel filters are like 15 at Oriely and fairly easy to change but expect a gasoline bath if you dont have jack stands (ive done this on the ground after pulling up on a curve). My car has two filters in parallel to one another ive never seen this on any car.....two in series
I replaced both of the upstream oxygen sensors (bosch brand) and replaced my camshaft
position sensor (duralast brand) Im not a fan of duralast but my plate sticker in Chicago was expired and needed to fix it asap as I failed the emission test.. I took it for a test drive and at the red light as I stopped the car begun to shake a lot. I released the break a bit to see if it would stop if the car was
OK so here are the monitor test that this thing could not complete (Inc for incomplete) 1. Catalyst Mon. 2. Evap system Mon. 3. Sec Air system Mon. 4. Oxygen Sensor Mon. 5. Oxygen Sensor Hrt.

P0141 oxygen sensor heater circuit bank 1 sensor 2 3. P0161
Good news 2.0 The shaking finally came to an end. And the car now runs like a beast again 0-60 in 7 secs Replace both new emission relays for new ones replaced the faulty coil for a new bosch coil bought the two downstream o2 sensors they should be in my mailbox soon. I spent quite some cash on all this stuff and tools I bought. So my girlfriend was like oh couldnt you just have taken it to a mechanic
I was wondering if anyone makes performance camshaft
s for the E39 540i. I have looked high and low and can only seem to find performance engine parts for the 6 cylinder engines. I love the performance of my 540i just looking for more power. I dont want to jump into a SC but 30 - 50 HP from cams would be nice. Is the ECU capable of learning or would it need a custom tune (if I could find camshaft

The light comes back on at the seconde start up... What else could it be.. I might have a bad sensor.. please help.. anyone..
May be Vanos related --check out Besain systems website for more info
Okay Ive got two problems. One.. Car alarm is going off all the time armed or disarmed. My neighbors are starting to hate me. Two Check engine light just came on Im at 102k Miles. I went to AutoZone and borrowed their code reader. This is what I get P0343 camshaft
Posistion Sensor A - Bank 1 Circut High Input. I called the parts dept they said there are two sets of sensors (left and right) Im thinking
Well. I went to the stealership and bought a Crank Posistion Sensor. It was 80 bucks after using my friends dealership discount. I asked them which side was Bank A (Rail 1) and the dealership said that was Passenger side of the motor. I changed it. It was extreemly easy. I reset my cluseter the error hasnt came back. BTW the New Crank sensor looks different than the old sensor. The old sensors diameter
just picked up a 96 328is for a steal it has a 125.000 but the cps is geting worse i plan on doing it this weekend crazy thing is there is 2 codes for it yes ive done my reserch ... it was serviced under recall in 98 any info would be great

On my 97 528I I replaced the head and set the camshaft
using the tools required. Its still throwing a code for the Vanos being retarded. Does anyone know how to set the Vanos correctly
hi im new to the website and my check engine came up i ran the code and it was a intake camshaft
position sensor so i orderd the camshaft
position sensor from www.rockauto.com.i want to know is that a reliable website and will the part work how its supposed to aslong as it is installed right has anyone orderd parts from that website and should i be worried that part from rock auto is not good enough Thank you i have a 2001 bmw
525i with 80000 btw
The CPS is one of those parts that really should be OEM. Do a search here for peoples experiences. Aftermarket CPS either dont work properly or fail rapidly. I have used RockAuto for many parts for my Civic and Explorer but NEVER for my e39. Great selection and pricing. When it come to your e39 stick with OEM branded parts on the critical systems.
Hey fest Their is this guy who is selling cams from a 95 s50 m3 and i want to buy them but not sure what im looking at. Im talking in the means of what do i need to operate them i talked to chad about them he says i need a turner chip but i already have a dinan chip.. i need the turner because the car wont know what to do with the cams does anybody have any knowledge what so ever about the cams let me know Thanks guys Revive the fest
If I have it right the M3 cams arent agressive cams but it might have a bit more lift than your standard cams. As I understand it the thing comes in with the dual vanos system which has a 36deg adjustment where your single vanos only have something like 18deg.( I stand to be corrected on this) I have heard that 272deg cams works very nice so maybe if you can find you such a set it will work better for you its also not too agressive so you can use it in your daily drive.
I just came across this interesting little trick for diagnosing blocked CCV in the Volvo forum With the oil cap sealed engine on stick a balloon over the dipstick tube and see if it inflates. If it inflates you need to service the PCV system
. ...Lee I think he meant with the dipstick removed so the balloon goes over the dipstick housing. No balloon no problem get an old dish washing glove cut a finger off and tie it with rubber band. httpwww.matthewsvolvosite.comfor...hpf1&t28322
The crankcase valve cover dipstick tube are all connected by wide open space. Remember the oil on the camshaft has to drain back down to the sump. According to the TIS the vacuum should be between 3-6 of WATER no Hg (mercury) which is the measurement used on a typical vacuum gauge. 3-6 of H2O is not very much. The goal of the CCV as others have stated is to maintain a slight vacuum under all conditions.
2001 330ci. The SES is on once again (after replacing the camshaft
position sensor a month ago). The car ran for about 3 weeks wo the SES on then last week it came back. Its throwing 3 codes P0171 - Bank 1 too lean P0174 - Bank 2 too lean P0313 - Misfire detected low fuel level (Assuming this is bc of the first two) Anyone have any ideas The most I got out of the search was maybe the MAF but wouldnt
The increased emissions warning along with the SES light came on on my 04 545i today. I took the car to AutoZone and they read the codes which showed p0348 camshaft
position sensor - bank 2. Anyone had this occur on their 545i. I had it on my E39 528i and the car ran like crap at times so I replaced the exhaust and the intake ones with success. Any ideas on the 545i Car seems to run fine. Thanks.
Thanks but I dont think that is the answer to the issue here. I dont use regular gas. I use Shell 93 and havent used anything else since I got the car which has been from 61000 to the current 70000 miles. I usually go to the same gas stations but sometimes switch it up Always Shell 93 though. I did however perform your recommendation. I added a fuel system cleaner and performed quite a bit of highway
Whats Up everybody..I need some help today I did a fluid check on my car and I noticed that there was oil in the coolant tank..I checked the oil and it was fine no sign of coolant in there also I have noticed the past 2 or 3 days when I first start my car up after the oil pressure bulids up the car starts to let out white smoke out the tail pipe. I know that theses are signs of a blown head gasket but can there be anything else possible that can be causing this to happen
Since im gonna have to take the head out i mine as whell build it whats a good cam to get. And is there a big differnce between the zhp cam and the Schrick camshaft
Quote Originally Posted by EuroTunner04 Since im gonna have to take the head out i mine as whell build it whats a good cam to get. And is there a big differnce between the zhp cam and the Schrick camshaft I answered this in your OTHER cam thread....
I am having the P1519 code on my 2000 540i6. Ive had both camshaft
position sensors changed recently and the code comes back everytime . The tech who replaced the sensors told me that the solenoids could be bad and that camshaft
might be way out of time due to bad solenoid valve. Ive priced the solenoid valve and I need to know now if anyone has heard of putting the camshaft
back in sequence manually
Poolman thanks for the response. 2000 540i DIDNT have VANOS seals Does that mean that my single VANOS system would not be as large issue like the I6 Mark Im gonna have my tech look at the chain guides next weekend. Thanks for your input.
Im not sure but thniking that the Vanos on the V8 is more complicated than the i6 cars--never worked on the V8 engine so I dont have a clue about that part--but have talked with Rajaie at Besian systems at length about the V8 Vanos problem--as to date he doesnt have a fix for your problem as he did for our 6 cylinder engines.
