Re: Gearbox swap.

The TCU (transmission computer) that goes with the newer unit. They aren't cross-compatible from what I've heard and seen.

It's done. They won't attempt to restart construction on that nest. They may try creating a new one close to that same spot.

Re: Engine running woes

Your observation that it seems to be running lean once again points to vacuum leak(s). Doing a smoke test to find it/them will eliminate that as a cause, but I believe you'll find the problem is just that, a vacuum leak. I've seen it too many times on my own and other's vehicles to believe it's anyt...

Re: What Kind of Power Steering Fluid Do You Use?

I'll add one thing....pump the pedal with the ENGINE OFF until the pedal goes hard, then fill the reservoir. You are discharging the brake bomb by doing that. The level will drop once the engine is started, but don't worry about that. It is correctly filled. My documentation shows anything Dexron II...

Re: Crazy prices AUTOart models

I recently bought an AUTOart E36 M3 that was a dealer's display model. The eBay seller thought the original box was sufficient protection to ship it from Great Britain to Alabama. :evil: It arrived with both mirrors knocked off, the left taillight missing, and the diffuser also missing.

Re: E24 Relays

85 and 86 are the coil power connections, 30 is the 12v supply and 87 is the feed to the pump. 12v across 85 to 86 will pull in the solenoid, closing the circuit from 30 to 87, powering the fuel pump.

Re: Replacement battery pack for cordless power tool

It wasn't a cordless tool, but we had (and they presumably still have) a Ryobi 3/8" variable speed reversible drill at the machine shop where I worked for almost 26 years. It was used when we got it (boss bought out a machine shop) and we used, and I mean USED THE HECK OUT OF that drill for 26 years...

Welcome to Bigcoupe.com and the insanity that is E24 ownership, Mike! Are you getting injector pulses and spark? Whenever I hear of no power to the fuel pump relay I immediately think of a failed crank sensor. You'll lose all three if the crank (position) sensor dies. You have two sensors in the bel...

Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #386

1850kg= 4070 lbs, which I believe is the maximum gross weight.

950kg=2090 lbs front axle load

980kg= 2156 lbs rear axle load

I cannot explain how the max gross weight is less than the total of each axle load.
