BMW SERIES 3 E30 Distributor upragdes Are there any or a delete kit

Hey guys need a little help here on my distributor its starting to go bad I know it is got new plugs and the harnest isnt worn the inside shows some decae. With that said are there any aftermarket parts for it or can I delete it Ive heard you candelete the cap and you also would need to reprogram the ecu with it This is my project car daily driver now dont say Im dumb for thinking there is or isnt

You can replace your distributor parts for less than 30 bucks.... To convert to distributorless coil on plug would be very costly and unless you match a mean turbo or build the heck out of your motor it wouldnt pay off. AEM makes a ecu.. you have to cut and splice every wire coming in and out of your ecu. Ive done one on a civic back in my installer days.. not fun and not easy. The ecu itself I believe

street tune dyno tune again. After a year of tuning youll maybe have a good running car again. You are right it would be much simpler and easier to do but I wanted to see if kits were sold by any chance I want to keep the engine original and not put in a different block for the work but if it is I guess I might have to move up to a e36 if they run off of coils. Im not to familiar with all the m series

BMW SERIES 3 E30 Distributor cap protective cover

Has anyone heard of the distributor cap protective cover causing a short in the ignition I had my car in to the shop for some minor work and the mechanic took both parts of the protective cap off and threw them away. I was told the cap was removed on instructions from a bmw service bulletin.

Plastic is non-conductive (correct me if Im wrong). The cover will keep some of the road grime off the distributor and makes for a cleaner appearance. If you want to replace it Id check the local salvage yard.

BMW SERIES 3 E30 Distributor Part Number

Greetings All Inspection of the part number of the distributor housing for my 84 E30 318 reveals that it is 0237 005 012. This contradicts the number suggested by Bentley and realoem.com of 0237 002 080. I have tried realoem.com but the part number ihave quoted is actually the type number hence i cannot search with it. So what engine has this distributor come from Any suggestions appreciated. Cheers Slaphead

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Distributor Caps on 03 530I

Does my car have distributor Cap I just replaced all the spark plugs and ignition coils just thought about the distributor Caps When I google for the distributor all it shows just the Ignition Coils not the distributor Cap. P.

BMW SERIES 3 E36 BMW 318i distributor cap

Where is the distrbutor and how easy is it to change the cap Please be very descriptive. Please help. Thanks.

distributor CAP haha...oh my... We have electronic fuel injection and plasma coils...there is no distributor cap. P.S. Welcome To The Forum

Doesnt the M40 have a mechanical distributor I cant tell what 318i he has.

Oh wait I think it is a 1994 318i in his other thread. If that be so he would have an M42M43 which I dont think has a distributor cap.

I think it is beside the chrome plated multifluxdemodulator

BMW SERIES 3 E30 m10 distributor rotor

This may sound strange but my distributor rotor will not come off. There are no allen screws or bolts holding it on. Is this one of those I should just pry off When I pull it with my hand all that moves is the distributor shaft. Will it hurt anything to pry it up with a screw driver This seems like a stupid question but I dont want to screw it up.

Has anyone changed the rotor button in their distributor If so did it come right off Need some help. Thanks.

The button pulls straight up and off....mine does and its same year

BMW SERIES 3 E30 How to replace a distributor cap

I have a 1989 325i. I need to replace the distributor cap and rotor but its fighting me I bought a variety of 8 mm wrenches and sockets to help me get the 3 bolts loosened. Today I worked on it for over an hour and never could get the cap off Eventually I resorted to removing one of the coolant hoses and was then able to get all 3 bolts out. The cap was completely loose but wouldnt come off the distributor

Well if you have all three bolts loosened it should come off. Im not aware of the i cars having more than three bolts. You may need to tap the cap with a rubber mallet just not too hard. You may try getting a mirror and using it to see if the cap is snagging on something or if there is a mystery bolt somewhere.

you might have to remove the fan or the shroud but it is only three bolts and it should come right off with a small tap from a rubber mallet or a dead blow.

Not sure if a hammer would help. The cap acted like it would fall right off if I could just move it toward the front of the car enough to clear the rotor but something was in the way. I didnt have an inspection mirror but by touch alone it seemed like the coolant pipe was the culprit. Does that pipe run slightly in front of the cap on the 325i

This picture is not a picture of my engine bay but it may help. The hoses shouldnt get in the way very much when removing the cap. If they are usually they have enough play or give to not be a problem. The clutch fan will give a little bit if it is in the way normally you wouldnt have to remove the fan. In case you dont know if you removed the hoses you will need to bleed the coolant system. You could use a small household type mirror maybe a flashlight to see whats in the way.

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Spare fuses on distributor case

The manual claims that spare fuses and fuse forceps are stored on the distributor casing - I seem to have found the distributor near the passenger compartment on the drivers side but theres no fuses or forceps in the cover - anyone know where I can find these

BMW SERIES 5 E34 No Distributor So what tells it to fire

No distributor So what tells it to fire What is telling the spark plugs to fire since the e34 doesnt have a distributor I have two wet plugs and it is missing one or two times while idling. I unpluged each ignition coil one at a time to see if I could figure out which cylinder was missing but only one plug made a difference when I disconnected it. Thanks for any suggestions.

BMW SERIES 5 E34 distributor timing

i just rebuilt my m30b35 n id like to know how to time my distributor i know i have to put the 1st cylinder up but on wich pin ive to put the magneto

Im not sure what you mean by timing the distributor If you bought a stock distributor cap it has the cylinder numbers molded right into the plastic at the bottom of the insulating posts (where the wires plug into). The wire coming from the coil (your magneto) plugs into the central post shown in the picture below

BMW SERIES 5 E34 Distributor Cap

What are the symptoms of a bad distributor cap When driving my car it seems maybe the cylinders arent firing correctly or maybe some arent firing at all. Also it idles irregularly one minute it idles smoothly next minute its idling rough. The differece can really be felt when driving. The engine is also shaking alot. Mechanic told me to replace the distibutor cap and spark plug wires but the wires

Only two things are likely to cause the symptoms you describe fuel or ignition problems. Assuming your Fuel Pump is operating normally and your Fuel Filter (or fuel line) is not clogged then it is probably ignition. I think in a previous post you mentioned that you have already replaced the plugs so the next in line (literally & figuratively) is the Plug Wires and the distributor Cap & Rotor. If the

BMW SERIES 5 E34 Cracked distributor cap source of vacum leak

My 1992 535 e34 M30 has a cracked distributor cap and is worn inside from the rotor. Real bad. Can this cause my misfiring and rough rough idle issue I was also wondering if having a cracked cap could be a source for a vacum leak

Definitely could cause rough running or mis-fires especially if the rotor is worn badly. You can also get tracking from the carbon brush deposits. I dont see how it could cause a vacuum leak though.

Lots of tracking infact there were carbon deposits everywhere. It looks like something broke off or came loose the rotor wore a pattern in the plastic case of the cap. I have a replacement on the way so hopefully it will be running smooth again.

Be sure to replace both the Cap & Rotor. If the rotor was touching the cap then you had better check the Rotor Shaft to make sure there is no excessive play in the bearings. Unless the cap became loose or the rotor broke apart they should never actually touch.

BMW SERIES 3 E30 Distributor Cap Question

Routine Oil change and I happen to find this (see attachment). I never noticed any difference to the engine or rpm Why Was the contact point not affected because it was still attatched Note that the hose and contact point were perfectly aligned before I moved it. It was a slight crack that got my attention. My main question is Before I go out and buy a bosch cap is there any other better possiblities Any other brand that I need to be aware of Input greatly appreciated.

youd only ever notice a slight miss at idle. youd be amazed at how a small crack can but sometimes doesnt effect the spark. this is why we cant fully understand electricity. im sure there are many brands of dizzy caps but bosch is fine

Bosch is the OEM and will work the best you should also replace the rotor wiresand plugs as theyve probably been in there along time to look like yours.

BMW SERIES 3 E30 distributor cap

wont come off...the 3 3mm allen bolts will not loosen the allen wrench bends the allan socket tries to tear apart the inside of the bolts. any tips on how to get this off. my car is outside in pieces( there is a solid metal radiator hose was infront of the cap...so we had to losen it and to get to it we had to remove the other hoses) and its getting dark so any ideas are good.

Soak those bad boys on wd-40 for a day tapping every so often to set up a vibration then use HEAT Yes heat. Get a propane torch and gently heat around the area that the allen bolts are into... if that does not work. (I hate it when THAT happens)
