Re: 635CSi hesitates

OK, let assume your right that the engine rpm is ok when hesitating but yet the ign lights come on. That would lead me to think it certainly isn't fuel, which means a momentary ign circuit hiccup. Checking what could be that hiccup would be tough, because it's momentary meaning you can't test anythi...

Re: 635CSi hesitates

The battery light will come on when the engine idle drops (hesitates)
because the alternator is not spinning fast enough to feed the circuits.

I wish I could help, but an intermittent problem like that is very difficult to diagnose.

Re: All good things must come to an end...

Geez Brian what could I say that's not already been said. The one thing I would like to add is the friendships that developed with Big Coupers. Here's a post from back in 2011 and we're still having our get together every fall thanks to BigCoupe. Second post. http://bigcoupe.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php...

Re: miller performance

Just happens that I have A Miller MAF for sale with my 059 ecu reconditioned just for PM with 28 pin chip (not the war chip). I went with a stand alone after my engine rebuild. The MAF worked great before the rebuild. Here is my post (#5) some years back when my opinion was asked. https://www.bimmer...

They have been absent for quite a while now.
Are you looking to buy a MAF or is there a question you need answered?

"I can pay through wire transfer or paypal."

Once I see wire transfer that raises a red flag.

Flock or not to Flock

I finally took care of the cluster problem most of us face. I used a flocking kit and it worked great. IMG_1716.JPG I wire brushed the cluster, then sprayed with carb cleaner. Had to thin out the paint about 25% in the sprayer https://www.homedepot.com/p/Preval-Sprayer-2-Pack-0225/203826736?MERCH=RE...

Re: M635 smog repair

With due respect your asking companies who make performance parts about being smog compliant? Your right, your only hope is to find an older BMW guy who knows this older technology. Most techs nowadays weren't even born when these cars were manufactured. Maybe one of these shops can help. https://ww...

Re: M30 overhaul or swap

I would rebuild instead of swapping. Fresh engine compared to a similar one with same HP and condition you already have Good engine builders usually don't R&R the engine. You could find a shop to pull the engine, have a builder to his thing and have the shop install. I would not have a general tech ...

Re: Servicing of very low usage 635s

plip1953,

How do you measure "degree of water absorption"?
I'd like to use this method.

I think it's better to have a full tank, you won't get much condensation buildup
to rust the tank.
