The $1 BMW X5 Engine Was Hiding A NASTY Surprise *More Check Engine Lights*

Muaj më parë

2003 BMW X5 for $1,500 and spent a ton of time getting it all sorted out to sell it to a subscriber for $1. Basically everything that goes bad on these things has been replaced but that pesky check engine light came back anyway. Today we're chasing down secondary air and DISA valve issues... but when it came to the DISA valve I never expected what I found.

Secondary Air Valve:

Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make ALpost videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

I know it's a bit too late but: if you remove the bulkhead shroud, the centre section comes out with just the two nuts, the one holding on the positive terminal & the one the other side. The rest clips in. Makes access to the rear of the engine much easier.

I worked for an interior manufacturer on that Beemer. I think chances are good that I watched the instrument panel being made and a few of the other pieces like the center console and all door panels.

I had a 2004 X5 3.0i that would eat up secondary air pumps every two years. I loved that SUV, but it had all kinds of gremlins. It sure was nice that it had a six speed manual gearbox.

JR you mentioned something about getting a motorcycle lift. Check out Big Blue Motorcycle lift/ North America. It can lift up to 1650 Lbs. I think it would be cool to start watching you work on some motorcycles.

Dang BMW's just stick some tape over that engine light and keep driving it. Otherwise you'll see no end of it

Is the DSC trifecta on? DSC, ABS, and "BRAKE" illuminated. Just a steering angle sensor/yaw sensor calibration because of voltage interruption? Or does it need an ABS module rebuild... like pretty much every e53 and e39 eventually needs? Enjoy the content (especially BMW), keep it coming, I'll keep watching.

For hard to see areas use mechanic mirror. My favorite though was the mirror I yanked off a junk toyota pickup. Just tack welded a s hook to it to hang behind things.

If you look at the tuning on the disa valve it opens at 3800-4800, you actually lose power up top with it open. Not sure why, I’d assume that it lowers the velocity of the air at maximum flow.

I had the same code with my 2002 BMW 530i. Same engine, it turned out to be that vacuum line u couldn’t take off at 3:34, it was slightly cracked creating a vacuum leak that affected the secondary air pump.

Hopefully the new owner will be smart enough to drive it directly to CarMax or some place and unload it before the next check engine light comes on. Get whatever money he can out of it and put it toward something reliable.

You personally are brilliant, as are Hoovie, The Wizard, The Ninja and you all make marvelous programmes but this one highlighted why The Wizard won't touch a modern BMW ! They are a MOUNTAIN of expensive repairs waiting to catch out second hand punters and just because you have the skill to make working on them look like a doddle, you MUST know that they are eventually going to DESTROY people's bank accounts and marriages and mental health ! Do carry on though !
