Is there anything in particular I should be looking for or asking the seller about? Give the dealership a little push and shove and they will replace all of them. Pure stage 2s coming soon. It definitely did when I was looking for my 135i…but the substantial difference in tune-ability between the N54 and N55 is what brought me back. Some of the pumps have been reported to die all at once, with some even failing while driving at freeway speeds, causing the engine to die abruptly very dangerous. And my warranty is up. Today we started the car and moved it in our driveway.
Thank you for the comment, Sdub. Advertisements on this site are placed and controlled by outside advertising networks. Sorry for the bad news. This is a fantastic question. Due to the damage to the head, the injector located in cylinder 5 continues to loose the O-ring.
Dealers will replace the electric auxiliary water pump and will be notified next month. I was traveling on the interstate going 75mph when my car lost all power, shut off and left me without power and stranded due to a fuel pump. But I promise most of the others are. What if we lived 100 miles from the dealership? They indicated the injectors were under recall however my car had already had the recall completed. These replacement modules contain an air bag inflator that may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to lower absolute humidity, temperature and temperature cycling. To date we have spent more than 5% of our contract lease miles doing nothing but driving to and from the dealership for warranty repairs quality and reliability failures.
Read on and we will cover each N54 problem. The leak dripped onto the serpentine belt. Took it to Supremepower and Andrew fixed it up right. Also new coil pack and spark plugs. Thanks again for the help. The most common benefits are increased throttle response, smoother idling, and overall smoother and improved performance.

The vehicle is at the dealership at the time of the complaint waiting for repairs. Additionally, the fuel pump may stop working, possibly causing an engine stall and increase the risk of a crash. These vehicles may have had a driver-side air bag module installed as replacement equipment such as after a vehicle crash necessitating replacement of the original air bag, or as a remedy part for a prior recall. Lost power and luckily were able to move over to the shoulder with no incident. In June of 2013 I began to have issues with the fuel system. This is replacement is usually 15+ hours of labor. Most have been replaced under warranty and are guranteed to 120K miles.
In some cases premium fuels have more detergent than regular or mid-grade fuels. I do not feel that I should have to keep paying for a problem that is not resolved. Does someone need to die? Along with your engine fan, the water pump and radiator are important parts of your cooling system. You could smell gas in the car and see puddles of gas when they lifted the back seat of the car. It's driven the same as our other cars, including my 540i sport and our previous 330xi. It is estimated that only a small percentage of vehicles will actually develop a problem.
Only thing left on the list is for the turbos to go. This is a fantastic question. The covers are plastic, and therefore are affected more by the increased heat created by turbocharged engines. After about ten minutes the flashers go off and the car is able to drive again. With no warning, the engine malfunction light goes on and I get a message to slow the car down. Problem has occurred three times over the past fife years, and occurs without warning while engine is running. Dealers will rework the front passenger seat sensor mat so that external force application to the seat does not cause a crack to the mat.
In most case-scenarios those repairs should hold up for at least 60,000 miles. But it had already stopped. Loose wires may cause the connector to melt, leading to a fuel leak. The affected vehicles have in-tank fuel pumps that may have insufficiently crimped wire contacts. So we drove the car slowly to the house 3 miles away.
You can guess which is more expensive! I consistently use mid-grade fuel 89, or Plus , usually from Exxon or 7-Eleven Chevron? The fuel pump could also stop working, and if that happens, the engine could stall. My 135i is a 2008 10 years old already! In this case, running higher levels of boost psi on your turbochargers will likely increase your chances of Wastegate failure. Over time this could result in contamination of the brake booster. A failure at highway speed that would cause the car to stall is a dangerous condition. That made me feel a little better. The failure mileage was 9,900.
Bmw will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and secure the battery bolt cable connection as necessary, free of charge. Due to insufficient lubrication, the vacuum pump that supplies brake power assistance may fail. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on a separate occasion and the computerized system software was updated. Apparently the fuel pump recall was not all of the problem as this same engine malfunction still occurs and the car still behaves the same as before the fuel pump recall. For a car of this caliber it is not acceptable. My wife had a leak for a while and kept driving and adding oil. Took the car to the dealer the very next day.
