Another part of trying to sort the idle is to replace the idle control valve, which has been a bit suspect from the beginning.
In my quest to smooth out my idle issue, I wanted to remove and check the DME and VNC units.
Ah yes, that time again. It’s not my M3 if it doesn’t involve rebuilding the Vanos at some point.
Well, the time has come. I’m keeping the BMW for the foreseeable future, so the only logical next step was to drop some dead weight, and pull out the subs.
Its been a while, for two main reasons, but I’m still here, and for now, so is the BMW.
Well this is a familiar job, the old brake light switch failure.
One last thing I needed to fix, so that the car would reliably start, was the ignition barrel. Sometimes it would free spin, and wouldn’t start the car.
Progress on the BMW is slow. Unfortunately I fix one thing, and in the process find something else that is broken and needs more parts ordered.
Don’t worry guys, this is the last post today; Just playing catch up. I had my suspicions that the aux fan wasn’t working, and I wanted make sure before it caused issues.
