BMW X5 E53 Common Issues: BMTroubleU

Common issues to look for under a bmw x5 e53, includes a look at the automatic gearbox plug sleeve seal removal and replacement, castor bushes, cv boots, and charge hose seals. PLEASE NOTE I NO LONGER DO REQUESTS AS I DONT WORK FOR BMW ANY MORE BUT IM STILL HAPPY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. Transcript- G'day guys, welcome back to BMTroubleU. Recently we did a part on resetting E53 service lights. I thought I'd get you in underneath the car today and check out a few other things ive found with this particular car. This is the gearbox, ive had the pan off obviously. You can see all the mechatronic bits and bobs in there. Now the reason ive got the pan off is because a reoccuring theme amongst all these mechatronic gearboxes- that includes E90's, 1 series, 5 series, a whole lot in the BMW range, is the plug sleeve seal up here (0:36) alright, that always leaks (very regularly leaks ok). So ive got it out today. Now the reason ive got the pan off is to get that out the white tab here, usually in this same area on alll gearboxes, just gotta pull that down before you can take that plug sleeve seal out. Ive got the new one here (0:58). Youve gotta have that little locator down the bottom, thats on this model. Im pretty sure thats how it is on the other ones as well, just down the bottom there. Just make sure you note that when you get it out, make sure its down the bottom there. Its got a corresponding locator on the plug just here (1:20). If you can see that. Now a couple of other things while we're under this E53 to look for on your car...just get my flathead. I always look at castor bushes on E53's- always. They're a heavy car and they like to fong out these castor bushes. These are the castor bushes (1:38). Youve got your tie-rods (1:41), your swaybars (1:43) and camber bushes (1:45), they never... hardly ever go. I've barely ever seen any of them bugger up, but these castor bushes.... these ones in particular are fine. If you can see that (1:57) thats fine, theres no splitting in that. Check up the top as well, I cant quite get my camera in there but check top and bottom. These ones are fine, but when they go you'll get brake shudder, you will get a big noise.... especially say youre on a flat surface, just put it in drive, let the brake off and get it up to whatever top speed it is at idle and then just jab on the brakes. And as soon as you jab on the brakes you'll hear the whole body just go BOOM and you'll go 'Oh, yea castor bushes' no problems. No need to get underneath it (most times) order them straight up. You can order just these bushes and press them in with any press youve got in the workshop, or if youre a home fella you can take these out its not too hard... down the end here (2:41) you might need a separator tool, alright. Take the arm out, the complete arm and take it down to where ever they have a press and they'll press them in for you. Other issues you get on these E53's obviously cause its four wheel drive its got front CV shafts. CV boots pretty regularly, i mean we havent had many of them recently, but i have done quite a few of those E53 cv boots. Alright, finally i havent got the belly covering off but turbo oil (you can see a leak there (3:22), that might even be one there) from the charge hoses right through the front bumper here in the Intercooler regularly go the seals in them. Ive been told they blow a bit of oil as per normal so dont about it worry too much. If you get bad leaks check your pcv obviously and your turbo seals, see if theyre blown or not. Thats all i can think about at the present moment, if you have any other questions or comments please feel free and we'll check you on the next update.

ECS Tuning: BMW Automatic Transmission Service DIY
Automatic Service Kits Available At: http://www.ecstuning.com/?utm_source=Youtube Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced, the automatic transmission fluid will break down, causing the valve body and filter to become contaminated with deposits and sludge. This will lead to poor shifting, slipping, and ultimately transmission replacement. This tutorial is provided as a courtesy by ECS Tuning. Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable operation of all motor vehicles as well as the personal safety of those performing the repairs. Standard safety procedures and precautions (including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or improper service which could damage the vehicle or compromise its safety.

BMW X5 4.8is--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com An in-depth look at the BMW X5 4.8is, the original high-performance luxury sport utility. Courtesy of Midwest Auto Collection. Presented by Chris Moran. The 2005 BMW X5 4.8is is one of those vehicles. It rolls on 20s, has a bored-out V8 and a stiffened suspension holding it all up. On paper it's yet another argument that Americans will buy anything with a BMW badge on it, but on the road it's more fun than any SUV has a right to be. Displacing the Competition BMW borrowed a page from the Big Three school of high performance by upping the power of the X5 through increased displacement. The bump from 4.4 to 4.8 liters delivers 40 more horsepower and 26 additional pound-feet of torque for totals of 355 and 350, respectively. BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system works with a recalibrated six-speed automatic and a final drive ratio that's actually taller (3.9 vs. 4.1) than in the 4.4i to get the power to the ground. Throttle tip-in is ultraquick, with the slightest nudge of the pedal resulting in a thump from the Exhaust and a not-so-subtle leap forward. Lay into it a little harder and the 4.8 smoothes out and slows up as wind resistance and gravity begin to take their toll on the tall 2.5-ton vehicle. Its 0-to-60-mph time of 7 seconds and quarter-mile pass of 15.3 seconds make it one fast SUV, but both numbers are slower than those of any serious sport sedan in this BMW's $70K price range. Convincing Us One Corner at a Time Getting an SUV to go fast in a straight line is easy. Controlling one around a fast corner is the hard part. The standard X5 is good in this regard, but the 4.8is is better thanks to a sport-tuned air suspension; monster Michelin Diamari tires, sized 275/40 up front and 315/35 in back; and speed-sensitive variable assist steering (the standard system varies according to engine speed). With all four wheels getting power, ripping through turns requires nothing more than pitching it in, allowing it to take a set and then hammering the throttle down to pull it around. The steering is as precise as that of any BMW sedan, body roll is moderate and the massive tires cling like a high school girlfriend. The X5 4.8is clocked 62.3 mph through the slalom, a slightly higher speed than the Mercedes-Benz CLS500 sedan we ran the same day. The brakes are touchy, but the big 14-inch rotors stopped the 4.8 from 60 in just 116.1 feet, shorter than the CLS by a foot. Looking and Feeling the Part SUVs are purposeful, but rarely pretty. The X5 looks athletic and the 4.8is more so. In addition to big wheels and tires that give it a tough stance, the 4.8 gets titanium-colored grille work, shadowline window trim, extended side sills and a revised rear fascia highlighted by a pair of shadow chrome Exhaust tips. The 4.8is not only looks better, it feels and sounds better, too. Standard upgrades to the interior include eight-way sport seats, a nearly full-length sunroof and a thicker three-spoke steering wheel. There's no iDrive to make things complicated, and the cabin design has the simplicity that made 20th-century BMWs feel just right. The Alcantara-trimmed seats hold you in snugly without reminding you of every double cheeseburger you downed in the last six months. And speaking of meaty, the extra-thick steering wheel does as much to make the 4.8 feel sporty as any other upgrade on the spec chart. Cargo space is still meager, the CD changer is hard to get to and there's no third-row seat, but if those things are really that important to you, this is not your SUV.
