1986 BMW 325se

Showing 3 out of 7 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From Talis on 1986 BMW 325se

I just got a 1986 bmw 35se and i was told by the person who gave it to me that he drove it during the winter and it just stopped running at a friends house, i went out and bought a battery and tried to start it, it goes to turn over and sounds like it wants to fire... yet it doesn't im wondering if there is any common problem they had or if not what is the probable things that would cause that?

Response From Talis

ok i feel like a newb asking this but one of the problems i was told it could be is the coil, yet i have no idea where it is on that car, can anyone tell me perhaps what a 1986 bmw coil would look like? its a geourgous car with 300000 miles on it but i would like it to work... also what size socket do you usually need for spark plugs? i have 0 tools and have to buy some another problem posed was gas... where whould the fule filter be located?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I'm not a Beamer head but I think 1986 was using a distributor and if you follow the middle wire it goes to the coil. If not a distributor set up it would be coil packs and I wouldn't know for that car if so. Good luck, T

Response From carjunky

I did a little reverse engineering on this one and looked for your car in the replacement parts catalog (up top) section of this site here's what I found.


BMW 325es Ignition Coil

So I'm going to assume that if they sell a part for it then the car has it.

As with knowing if this is the problem its hard to say but makes sense, could be a bad connection, or something may need replacement.... you might want to pick up a repair manual if you plan on keeping the car so that you could also see how to repair the car.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Some more info would help. How long has this car not run? It could just be flooded and some spark plugs will NOT air dry.

Check for spark,

Check for a fuel problem. -- Spraying some starter fluid in it may make it kick but put the air cleaner back together as if it flashes at you it can cause a bad hair day!

If that works you need to check fuel pressure and problably should replace the plugs but don't mess up with the plug wires and leave them out for hours to dry out the engine.

Only guessing right now with a keyboard. T

Response From Talis

well it has been in operable since last winter... and when i get around to it i will try those things, but this is more of a modern american question... does anyone know what size botls i will ne to replace my 1990 ford f-150's clutch it was removed and the bolts lost last summer, also do you think its safe to just use it now even thou thetranny has been open to the elements for so long? its just been hanging under my truck without a clutch in it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

OK - let's see what we can do here:

Trans is probably ok.

Check for severe rust on flywheel and if nasty get it machined.

Toss out the old pressure plate and throw-out bearin with good stuff.

Put a smear of high temp grease in pilot bushing

Get the bolts from Ford as I can't tell you the length or strenth they need to be and that's too important.

You didn't ask but don't let the trans hang on the clutch disc till you have a bolt or two tightened up or it can warp the clutch. It may work but the only fix is another new one.

Good time to check out U-joints and make sure trans is filled with proper oil/gear oil when level and back in.

If driveshaft has been out all this time consider trying to clean up the end that seals in at the rear of trans and a new seal.

Good luck - here to help, T

NEED HELP CHOOSING A CAR

Question From afgballer4life on NEED HELP CHOOSING A CAR

hi i am looking to buy a car for about 4-5k that will last me... I don't know if i should go for a BMW 3-Series or A 01-05 Civic
Im 19 and Ive been through 3 cars which have cost me alot of repairs
first car was a 1999 civic which had blown head gasket and transmission problems
2001 acura TL which transmission had to be replaced
and what i am driving now a 2000 civic si which i pay $450 monthly for insurance and which had its head gasket replaced twice and clutch which cost me about 2k in less than a year
i am a student so i don't have a huge budget so i need some advice on a car that will last me and be reliable and and ive been through many japanese cars
What do you guys think i should go
I am thinking about a 3 series BMW but i am scared of the parts and maintenaince expenses.... usually ive had a problem every 3 months with my car thats cost me atleast 300 dollars
Are BMW's that much more expensive to repair..and are the parts much more to expensive....
I found a 2002 BMW 320i 5 speed with 230 000 kms for 5k should i go for it
please helpppppp is really appreciated

Response From Discretesignals

Don't think you should buy the BMW. Parts are more expensive and so is the cost of repair.

What is wrong with the vehicle your driving now? If you looking for an investment, cars aren't the place for that unless you own something rare and desirable. No car, no matter what it is, isn't prone to having problems. Your better off sticking to the Honda you have. If you maintain and respect it, it will go for a long long time. Besides you'll need to money to pay off your college loan if you have one.

Response From afgballer4life

the car i have is a mess and i have some money and i wanna move up to another car
but i wanna know if E46 BMW 3 series models are reliable and are they much much more expensive for parts and repairs than hondas

OH GAWD!!!!! HERE WE GO AGAIN


Response From nickwarner

At 19 you've already blasted apart head gaskets, transmissions and clutches of everything you've touched and with the rate you're talking about insurance you've definately rcked up your share of tickets and maybe accidents. To put it in perspective, my insurance is $70 a month with 4 OWI, 3 driving after revocation AND taking 5 sheriff deputies on a high speed chase 5 years ago resulting in a high speed wreck of my truck. You beat the living hell out of everything you own and while you may be footing the bill on this next car at least in part the only way you got the other ones was from the Bank of Mom and Dad. Wish my parents were so giving. Now in your quest for the next car to drag race down the street trying to reenact The Fast and the Furious you are thinking of a sport exotic that costs a damn nice chunk of change new and will fall apart under your driving. It'll be a great lawn ornament.

Civics have a very solid track record of being reliable and trouble free but with you behind the wheel I can think of no vehicle at any price that will stand up to your abuse. If you want your transportation to be reliable, become amish and get a horse. At least it will have the good sense to ignore you when you get the next dumb idea. Might even buck you off and knock that silver spoon loose.

Treat your vehicle like you treat a good woman. If you treat it well and respect it it'll be a great ride for years to come without too much drama. Beat the crap out of it and you won't have it anymore.

Response From Tom Greenleaf


i really wanna buy a BMW but i just want it to last and not break my wallet

Do you think it's a coincidence that B.M.W. could be a cute acronym for Break My Wallet? Stay with mainstream cars and have it checked out pre-purchase. Forget sport packages and toys that aren't there to get from point A to point B with the least hassles. You are paying more for just insurance than it costs me for all expenses on two vehicles for EVERY expense to own them. What gives with that? Ask now what that insurance cost alone will be for a BMW vs a Honda. BMW IMO is for people who have the budget and don't have to worry about that for a whimsical car. Leave those for later when price is not object, T

Response From Discretesignals

Ok...I'll give you an estimate on clutch replacement for a 3 series.

Here in the states it's over a $1000. With the mileage on the one your looking at clutch replacement could be soon if it hasn't been done already. The plastic coolant system parts and hose couplers are prone to cracking. They also tend to leak oil from the oil pan and they have problems with the crankcase ventilation systems along with vacuum leak issues when they get up in age. If you are absolutely bent on getting one, have your mechanic check it over before you consider buying it to see what your getting into.

Response From adau

Thanks a lot for your help. To give you more background, I live in Dominican Republic, where a good mechanic is almost impossible to find....
And I don't know anything about transmissions...
And my little Chevy a really rare model. ( OSE19-D on the title, it says comfort on the door ).

If I managed to get a transmission of one of the car models listed, it should fit my car? Any problem I might run into? Any other piece I will need to replace?
Thanks again.

Response From gsferraro

Hello,
2 things to start with to check are bellhousing, different engines sizes, the bellhousing will be a different shape also, the wiring harnesses are different, bmw has only one harness where an isuzu has 2 harnesses. Gary

Response From adau

Can I replace the transmission from another car model, or does it have to come from the exact same car?

Response From gsferraro

If you can find one from the same car, thats good, if not research will have to be done to make sure the other model will fit,these transmissions are used in a variety of different cars. You can get anything earlier than 2000, In the year 2000 the hydraulics changed. Gary

Hello,
The 4L30E transmissions are used in early BMW(1999 and down) they are used in honda pilots and honda passports(mid 90's) and isuzu troppers(mid 90's) i checked some gm cars cant find any the use this trans(cant even think of any) bellhousings are probably all different, and the bellhousing is part of the pump. What model chevy do you have? Gary

Question From Phils69 on Trans question

The 99 BMW 323i I recently bought had the transmission light 3 times now. Paid a shop today to pull the tranny code and it was the P0740 converter lock up clutch slipping. They said need new tranny or torque converter. It's a GM A5s360r I'm pretty sure, I'll check the next time I'm under there. The Trans shifts fine to me and I've had 2 go on me before so I know what it feels like. I researched and it looks like the following could fix the problem but wanted input to see if I'm going in the right direction. Any thoughts? Tranny has 155k on it.

Change fluid and filter
Change FCC solenoid
Replace torque converter

Response From nickwarner

Changing the fluid and filter won't fix mechanical damage. I doubt a new solenoid will either. Your torque convertor clutch is slipping when the ECM commands it to lock, which is the only time it kicks in and does anything anyhow. If you replace the torque convertor that means you pulled the transmission out already to get to it. But the failing clutch in it has put pieces of itself into your entire transmission and the short term fix of a torque convertor will probably result in a bad tranny plus a new torque convertor full of bad trans parts so it would have to be changed yet again.

Response From Phils69

Thanks for the reply Nick. The car is shifting fine and the light has been coming on maybe 1 time in every 100 miles. Bought this for my sons first car so trying to make it reliable though. Think I should not worry about the fluid change and just drive it until it dies? Guess I should start looking for a tranny.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

A beamer for your son's first car?! No problem - people can do that but the car is a PITA and expect expensive problems,

Response From Phils69

Believe me it's not that nice of a car just wanted something safe and was looking in the 3500 price range and this was definetly a better deal than the others I looked at. You are right as far as maint repair labor goes. I do my own wrenching or otherwise I would not have touched it. The guy got one over on me with the tranny though as The car shifts fine. The parts for these cars are reasonable as long as you buy them online and not from the stealer (dealer). I've already replaced the cooling system which was the weak link on these cars and rebuilt the suspension. Now looks like I gotta find a tranny

LOL..... and yet you are here with a problem that you can't deal with on a car that none of us would have gotten involved with, given a choice.


The only thing worse than working on a BMW is working on a BMW that is a hacked up, abused mess.

Response From Phils69

Rebuilding the transmission internals is one thing I won't do. I was here looking for some advise not to get smacked down on the type of car I'm having an issue with. Thanks for the help from Nick who is the only person who gave a knowledge response. Hammer - if that's the response from a Moderator on this site I'm out of here. Please cancel my account.

We can't cancel accounts here. Perhaps owner can but can't reach him. Sorry for your dismay. Just let it blow away if you wish and choice to not see anymore notices should appear for you.

All volunteers here and if that isn't good enough it's fine with me but it's YOUR choice,
