Fluid and filter changed but hadn't been able to do interval reset till now.

Iím afraid to take mine. Whatís the stealer gonna charge you
Just had the subframe out of my convertible e30 and did a complete suspension refresh up front and an oil pan gasket. Easy jobs compared to working on E53's.

I've been coming up dry for an alignment... might have to take it to the dealer as well. I've tried Pep Boys, NTB, and Firestone. The e30 only has front toe adjustment... ONLY. But everyone is afraid to touch it for reasonable money. Here's how the conversation at NTB went;


Me, "Can you guys do a front end alignment on that old BMW?" Manager, "Yeah, but we can't do that until my BMW/Mercedes guy comes in tomorrow." Me, "Oh yeah, it's only got front toe adjustment at the tie rods... nothing else to adjust." Manager, "Oh no, BMW's are very complex and need to wait until my guy comes in tomorrow." Me, "Oh, okay, how much does that run?" Manager, "$129." Me, "Oh, the sign says $89 for a full alignment." Manager, "Yeah, but you have a BMW. All Mercedes/BMW are $129." Me, "Okay, thanks for the info."

What did you do to / for your E53 today??

@eodguy: you may just have a loose connection to your transfer case but in your sand environment I'm not too surprised you have worn out transfer case oil.

In case you missed it those errors are not about the crankcase oil.

Yeah, but I also changed filter and fluid in transmission along with transfer case when I came back from Bahrain. So far the only thing not changed fluid wise is gear oil in the differentials.

But I hope you're right about connection, because the way the wife looked at me when I came in.... I'm already sweating like a whore in church.

The shake you describe is almost certainly ball joint and exactly why I ordered mine. Soft braking from 50-45 mph gives you shimmy you feel at the steering wheel. 99% Chance ball joint.


Spot on. Thanks

Finally figured out how to turn down the auto volume response of the head unit. So annoying to me for the volume to change automatically.

Over the labor day week I installed a rear camera that fit into the license plate light socket, atsc tv tuner, and an updated oem timing chain tensioner.

The space for the tensioner was so snug, I bruised my thumb and the joint swelled up for the week!

Still it's amazing how much quieter the engine sounds for the first couple of days. Now it's almost back to normal sounding. Which isn't bad, just wasn't as whisper quiet as before.
