After our world class adventure of NEFR, we reset. Everything was back together and fresh. Actual Motul gear oil 300 75w90 was flushed into the trans instead of mystery goop and ATF. The underbody protection was fixed up. The front end, back together and straight with new BIG Hella 4000s. Shift Linkage and bushings are put together with real bolts and clips instead of safety wire. New radiator cooling fan. Tighten all the bolts. The throw out bearing rattles like crazy due to not being put in correctly at NEFR, but works. And still a crappy sounding exhaust leak. But everything is solid and ready.

The BMW E90 family of 3-series cars among others came with an all new line of engines, beginning with N rather than the previous M and S model designations. The 6 cylinder power plants have a few design features to make them more efficient in terms of power, fuel consumption, and emissions. However, like most modern engines, there is a pretty glaring trouble point, the water pump. These BMW's utilize an electric water pump to allow computer controlling of coolant flow, rather than an engine speed dependent pump that saps drive power to run.E90 electric water pumps tend to have a relatively short life span, and if yours fails you will end up on the side of the road at best, with the threat of engine damage if the driver doesn't take notice of an overheating engine at worst. There are three kits for these cars:BMW Engine Water Pump And Thermostat Kit N51 N52 N52N ...Read More

This August I had the wonderful chance to return to the area where I grew up and be reminded of a strange, yet wonderful, childhood memory. eEuroparts.com was sponsoring the track events of the biennial Mercedes-Benz Club of America event known as StarFest, and I was elated. Not only were the multiple events being held in the last green valley, meaning I had a chance to visit the area I was raised, but I also got deep into an event focused on Mercedes-Benz and meet a wonderful new community. It was especially personal this year since I recently purchased a Mercedes of my own W204 C300 this year. The brand behind the 3-point star represents something different to each person and as a new owner my definition was still being created. Class, style, and elegance are three words that I chose for my definition, each represented by one spoke of the star. After spending ...Read More

The BMW X5 was one of the more prolific vehicles to come out of BMW in the last few decades, proving to the world that the smalltruck SUV thing was going mainstream in the European luxury sector. Previously dominated by Range Rover, and with waters tested by the Mercedes ML a few years previously, the E53 BMW X5 offered a comfortable interior, all wheel drive, and a high ground clearance. A lot of these new SUV's made it to America about 252,000, and because they are getting on in years we are finding some issues that seem to be common in the BMW X5, specifically with the transmission. Some questionable designs were implemented, leaving weak points in mission critical areas. These issues can lead to your BMW X5 hard shifting, banging, and having problems with limp mode and the transmission holding gears.Deferred Oil ChangesThese complicated transmissions require ...Read More
