SOURCE: Does a 1993 BMW 318i have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

SOURCE: replace rear turn signal bulb on 2007 H3 - driver side

1st::Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the light in.
2nd::Slide your hand behind the light and pull the light towards you. Make sure that you pull it straight, as if the h3 was driving away from you, so you dont break the two pins that are holding the light in...PULL ONE PIN AT A TIME!!!

Dont pull it to far away from the hummer as there are wires attached that need to stay attached.

3rd::turn the back of the bulb to unlock it from the lens...
4th:: slide the bulb out and remove thebulb by pulling it straight out.
5th::put the new bulb in, lock it back into the lens, then insert it back where you got it from,...

MAKE SURE you move the wires out of the way when you put the lens back in...they will get in the way and can be damaged.

SOURCE: Finding the PIN to pair My iphone with 2006 BMW 750i.

I have the same car. The dealership wanted to charge me $155 to go into the computer and give me the passkey.

One of the techs just told me how to find it myself:

Inside the trunk, on the left side behind the DVD player, there is a box that sits at a 45 degree angle. Right above that box, there is a box that is shaped like a VHS tape. Unscrew that box and on the other side you will see bluetooth PK: and your four digit number.

That saved me $155 dollars and now I can talk hands free through my car.

SOURCE: 07 BMW 750I HOW TO REMOVE OUTER DOOR HANDLE

To remove the outer handle, open the door and while looking at the edge of the door with it open, you should be looking at the side that the door latch lever is on, look near the top area and you should see a small black plastic oval piece. Remove that piece. Take a flash light and look inside the hole. There will be a brass lever inside with a small hole. Use a pick and insert in the brass slide. If you either push or pull the lever to or away, it will release the outer handle assembly. The assembly levers upwards when removing.

How to fix a timing chain rattle on a 85-94 Toyota 22R engine


Toyota 22R 1985-94 85- Celica, P.U., Four runner.

There are two basic different 20-21-22r engines, and three different timing chain setups. The early tall block 20-22r block used a dual row chain with steel backed rubber faced guides, the 83-84 22r used a single row chain with plastic guides and short step bolts, then came the final setup, a shorter block, thinner head, combustion chamber with a large squish area, nearly flat pistons, and pear shaped exhaust ports. It has a single row chain, with plastic guides with long step bolts on the left (drivers side) and short step bolts on the right holding the guides on. On this last 22R there is high incidence of guide failure, usually starting with the long straighter left guide breaking, allowing the chain to rattle against the timing cover in the area where the coolant passes through to the water pump, eventually wearing through and letting coolant into the crankcase. Upon inspection we find the chain is loose when installed, the tensioner is close to half way out on a new engine.

If we use a right side, curved guide and
short step bolts from an 83-84 and a prestretched timing chain, it goes together tight, the tensioner is fully retracted making the whole setup have less play, and less chance to rattle and break the left guide. I've never seen this setup fail, oil leaks from using sealant around the oil ports on the right side have been tough, but using the factory gasket on this side seems to work, also the felpro with printed seal in this area seem to work well.

This is critical if the block and head have been surfaced, making the chain even looser.

Hope this helps

Recently did engine overhaul but the timing chain gets loose after a few km drive and starts making noise nissan z24 single chain


the nissan z24 has a chain guard on either side of the chain
facing the chain the guide on the left is the chain guide and the one on the right is a guide as well it is a straight guide and when fitted should protrude slightly above the block face
it is held on the block by 2 bolts
there is also a small guide separate and above the adjuster bolted with one bolt in the head
the chain tensioner is below the lh guide and the bolts are tensioned to 53-89 inch pounds

Why after driving my 2006 528i bmw say about 30 to 40 min when I turn the car off and try to start the car up again it will not start. but if I wait about an half hour the car starts right up


I believe the 5 series has the same IVM module.

2006 BMW 750i - IVM module - Replaced on 5th January, 2015
Car would no longer recognize remote starter key and I could not start the car. Lights on in dash, but no noise, no starting.

Inittially thought one of my remotes were no longer good, then thought maybe it was because I had my iphone too close to the key..... None of my initial diagnostics were right, it was the IVM module. I often waited 15 minutes, then it started; then finally one day it wouldn't start at all.
Apparently the Integrated Voltage Module (IVM) has a relay in it that fails over time. The car began intermittently not recognizing the Remote (key), then failed completely. Replaced the IVM module and the car started immediatly and has started everytime since replacement. Part cost $127.US + tax at BMW dealer or $80. on line. Pretty cheap for what it has (9 connectors, a printed circuit control board, several relays and multiple fuses). Easy to replace and it took 1/2 hour to replace and is located under passenger side cabin filter (under the hood) on the 750i - there are nine (9) connectors to remove and re-install on this module. Mine was an original part Manufactured on 21 January, 2005. Tools needed: one Allen wrench and a # 10 socket. See YouTube for video.
Apparently Dealer will replace for close to $500. You can do it yourself.

Hope this helps!

Eninge knock with a known cam gear problems.


i had the same problem. had a knocking on the engine and let the vehicle sit until i had time to look for the problem. my unknowing mom took the car without permission and the car broke down on her. as it would turn out the upper timing guide rail broke off and damaged the cam gears and broke the upper timing chain along with damaging both the right and left lower chain guides, and the tensioner was also damaged. i would recommend that u inspect the lower chain to make sure that everything is good.
