Changing The Power Steering Filter & Fluid On A BMW

Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY and How-To video, we'll show you how to change the power steering fluid and filter on a later model BMW or MINI. Follow along as we replace the reservoir/filter and flush the fluid on a 2001 330xi, The power steering fluid and filter are one of the most overlooked preventive maintenance areas on most BMWs and MINIs. (Think about it -- when did you ever changed the power steering fluid on any vehicle?) On BMWs, this system provides Boost not just for the steering but often for the power brakes and self-leveling suspensions, as well. Time and time again, we'll look at the power steering fluid in a BMW or MINI and it is filthy! (Running on old, degraded fluid will shorten the useful life of the steering rack/gearbox, brake Booster, fluid pump, etc.) The fluid should be bright, clear red or, depending on the application, just clean and clear One of the reasons this system gets overlooked is that there is no direct provision for changing the fluid; therefore the job is a bit more tedious. But it is not so tedious that it should be ignored. We recommend a biennial (every other year) or 50,000-mile fluid change for the power Boost system. Additionally, most systems have a fluid filter incorporated into the fluid reservoir. (A lot of mechanics do not even know that this filter exists!) Change the filter when changing the fluid. (This is also a great time to replace any leaking power steering hoses.) There are three different fluids used in BMWs and MINIs; the correct fluid is typically noted on a label on the reservoir cap. We can assist in determining the proper filter and fluid for your BMW or MINI.

Replace BMW Fuel Filter
http://www.AutoWerksofAmerica.com - Replacing a BMW fuel filter is easily done with a few simple tools and a little instruction. Some recommendations: Do this job when the fuel tank is nearly empty and use some kind of pan to catch the remaining fuel in the filter. Consider replacing some of the rubber hose and rusty hose clamps when you perform a BMW fuel filter change.





Part 1- Replacing a BMW 6-cylinder valve cover gasket
PART 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-TLgNCmTlY PART 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6MwYafETIA BLOG ARTICLE: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/vcg "Like" us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/BavarianAutosport "Follow" us on Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/BavAuto "Subscribe" to us on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/BavarianAuto Visit our online store - http://www.bavauto.com/ All of the items shown in these videos are available in our online store at http://www.bavauto.com/. Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this two part video series Otto will show you how to replace the valve cover gasket on the M50, M52, M52TU, M56, M54, S50, S52 and S54 6-cylinder BMW engines. These engines have been used in various 3, 5, X and Z models from the early '90s through the mid '00s. Note that while these procedures are shown on an E53 X5 (00-06) BMW with the M54 3.0 engine, they can also be applied to the E36, E46, E34, E39, E60, E85 and E86 3, 5, X and Z 6-cylinder models. Some will look slightly different or have slightly different hardware but, the basic points and procedures are the same. --- Part 1 - Valve cover removal steps: In this video we will remove the valve cover on a BMW 2002 3.0i X5. Part-2 covers the installation. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/VCG 1) Some models require that the cowl HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) air inlet tray be removed in order to allow full access to the engine valve cover. This E53 X5 does not require removal of the cowl tray. 2) Remove the engine trim cover. Pry out the two round trim plugs on the trim cover. Remove the two 10mm nuts or bolts. Lift the plastic trim cover off and set aside. NOTE: This earlier "coil on plug" model has the coils secured into place via studs and nuts. On these models, remove the two 10mm securing nuts and pry the metal harness clamp upward to release the harness plug. The coil can then be pulled up and removed. Later M54 engine used the later "pencil style" coils. These coils do not have any bolts or nuts securing them in place. They can just be pulled up and out. See the "pencil coil" replacement video at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/coils2/ 3) Release the securing clips and pull the harness plugs from the ignition coils. 4) Remove the nuts or bolts securing the coil frames to the valve cover and pull the coils up and out. See note above if you have the "pencil coils" that do not have nut or bolt securing hardware. 5) Unclip the coil plug harness assembly and set aside. Unclip the oxygen sensor harnesses and set aside. 6) Remove the valve cover securing nuts. Loosen and remove in an expanding spiral pattern, starting in the middle of the valve cover. 7) Gently remove the valve cover. Be very careful if applying any prying. this can easily crack the plastic valve covers. 8) Clean the cylinder head gasket mating surfaces with brake parts cleaner and a clean cloth. Now, click on to Part-2 and continue with the installation of the new valve cover gaskets and replacement of the valve cover assembly. --- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.





How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems. This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

Bavsound - Dynavin - BMW E46 3 Series Installation - Part 1/2
http://www.bavsound.com/ Purchase the Dynavin Install Toolkit here: http://www.bavariansoundwerks.com/product/414/361/BSW-Interior-Disassembly- Tool-Kit/ Part 1/2: This video walks you through the entire process of installing a Dynavin Head Unit / Navigation / Multimedia Device in your E46 3 Series BMW ('99-05). The process is fairly straightforward and should take even a novice approximately an hour or two from start to finish! Sorry we didn't film the relocation into the AC Controls slot. It's a direct fit on other cars and almost a direct fit on E46, but if you want it to be 100% factory you'll need a climate control trim piece available from the dealer. In this install we did not use the factory piece and it worked quit well. e46 is the only model that uses the OEM part and it's 51-16-7-001-408.
