The E39 and E38 with the M62 engine can have issues with the timing chain guides. The plastic on the guides that the chain runs on, becomes brittle with age. In the case of the vehicle in these pictures, the plastic on the upper guide was completely gone when we got it apart. You can see the difference between the old and new guide. Also if you look closely you see the chain resting on the guide with no plastic at all. This can cause serious noise issues, and if not attended to, can also be detrimental to the engine.
This is a Brake Booster & Master Cylinder out of a E39 530. This master cylinder had been leaking brake fluid for a while. The brake fluid leaked into the brake booster, causing the booster to start to rust on the inside. Symptoms of a leaking master cylinder are a very soft brake pedal, that travels to the floor. A brake booster going bad can cause a very stiff brake pedal. This vehicle had a strange combination of both.
We recently started performing Carbon or Walnut Blasting. This is a process used on Direct Injected vehicles to clean the carbon build up off of the intake valves. Carbon build up can lead to rough idle, misfire and poor performance issues. This customer commented that his vehicle felt as it did when it was brand new.
This 2001 BMW 3 series has some sludge in the motor, this is not as bad as other cars I have seen. Change your oil more frequently and you might not have these problems!
This 2005 BMW 530i had a small coolant leak for awhile, and the customer finally brought it in for us to inspect. We found that it was leaking from the seam.
