BMW Exhaust Parts Mufflers & Catalytic Converters for BMW 5 Series E39 (1996

e39 540i exhaust manifold leak

I know they're Magnaflow's, I just don't know the exact part. As soon as the car started I heard a nasty grinding sounding coming from outside the car. Get the oil out of the inlet tract and see if it comes back? Here the first and third cylinders form one manifold and the second and fourth cylinders form the second manifold. A catalytic converter is still recommended but installed in place of the factory center resonator. However I still maintain the seal is good, the oil is coming from somewhere else. Some buy or lease a new car every two years, but neither my wife, Maire Anne, nor I have ever owned a new car. My apologies if you already know this but I would hate to see you cut out the wrong piece.

I had a friend with a volvo who had an exhaust leak that sounded like a rod knock it was loud so that made me think of an exhaust leak. Codes- 1- Misfire detected low fuel level 2-random multiple cylinder misfire detected 345-manufacturer control ignition system or misfire 67- manufacturer control fuel and air metering auxiliary emission controls 8-System too lean bank 1 9- System i have a m62tu 540i that has dual exhaust very similar to the m5. Others clearly shared my Leyland-Lucas experiences. It was a very cool vehicle—five-speed, sport package, black with a black interior, slightly hunkered-down, with a really nifty self-leveling rear suspension that would pump itself up if you threw a lot of weight in the back. It does not contain a catalytic converter so the shape and size of the tubing can be optimized for the M54 3.

My question is, has this happened to anyone else, and if so, what was required to fix it. I love it and my intake is actually louder than the exhaust when I get on it. Installation is the reverse of the removal steps. I checked the oil and water prior to your collection and there was definitely no signs of head gasket trouble and it drove great on your 260mile trip back home. Get the correct nuts, clean the rust of and put some anti- seize on the threads. This is to avoid weird ressonnance that occurs when one series of cylinders compresses as the other releases.

540i Exhaust Leak

I want to buy a 325 coupe E36. I know it is connected because i connected it myself after i noticed the hose had dried and fell apart. I have not done it myself but have read some posts where others have changed intake manifolds. Not sure why it happened all of a sudden. The spark plug recesses were full of oil and this oil would've migrated south into the combustion chamber when you removed the plugs. It is where the forward catalytic converter connects to the rest of the exhaust system. I'll remove the drivers side nut remnants as well and replace all four nuts.

I think these nuts were removed by the dealer over 8 years ago when I had the clutch release fork mechanism replaced. Clamp exhaust flange with vise-grips pulling it back together in order to expose full length of threaded insert. Even at a premium price Supersprint is an unbeatable exhaust system because every aspect is done to such a high level. Closer view of joint below : There is no woven anything in there. I would like to thank you guys for the responses as the threads got many. Funny that I just had the same thing happen with 103K miles.

Here is a pic of the stud with nut. So you changed rockergasket and it's leaking from rocker cover, this would imply you didn't do rockergasket right. Deleting resonators makes a small but noticeable increase in overall volume so it's recommended that this is done after changing or removing mufflers. Replacing the airbox with a tube and open element filter isnt going to get you anything but noise good noise to some but nonetheless. Guess that didn't quite work out as planned. I am currently exploring my options on buying a post-facelift E39 M5, ideally in good condition at or around 100k miles, with detailed service records. If you are looking to start your custom turbo exhaust build, the exhaust manifold flanges from Creations Motorsport are the best place to start.

Makes more sense than falling apart. I don't know why the threads near the flange look larger than the others. But those are her cars, not mine. This weld-in bung allows an O2 sensor to be screwed into your exhaust system. Other countries the cat is somewhere further down the exhaust system. I've seen it but not very often, but rarely could I get the threads off without damaging the stud so you may want to have replacement studs on hand should the removal not go well.

If that doesn't work, I'll probably take it to a shop and have it done using the method you recommended Will report back on how it goes. The head gasket is obviously below the exhaust manifolds so this seems unlikely. Will anything be different if I take it out Performance gain or loss Also I have some pats I need a price for and good brand names. I think these nuts were removed by the dealer over 8 years ago when I had the clutch release fork mechanism replaced. I even fit the front subframe of a 2002 in there to bring it to get welded. Here are a couple photos I took during the process: Clamping exhaust flange together to expose full length of threaded insert on stud.
