e39 4.6 is on a distinguished road
4.6is engine replacement time

Greetings everyone, i'm new to the e53, but not new to the m62b46.

I picked this project up for $2000, not running 4.6is timing guide failure,

It supposedly had the trans rebuilt 1000 miles before engine failure.



I got it home put oil in it and tried to start it, What a noise that put out!! , no throttle response, flashing engine light and stalling. I got the usual p0011, plus many misfire codes.

It looks to me like bent valves, I'm slightly disappointed.

The good news is I have 2, 4.6 engines sitting in my garage

This will be another fun project for me!

yes (2), 4.6, (1) 4.5L eaton m112 supercharged (in use now), and (2) 4.4's and now a 3rd 4.6, 6 motors All for 2 cars I might have too many motors, or is it not enough cars

The x5 4.6is is a 2002, around 134k on it



I'll be buying a set of trim for my e39 from you someday
