Repairing curbed:scraped alloy wheels on BMWs and MINIs

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- "Aw, #$%&!!!" You just scraped one of your wheels on a curb. We know exactly how you feel. That's why in 2009, on one of our trips to Germany, we were excited to discover a new wheel repair kit. It claimed to let you repair scraped or gouged BMW and MINI silver alloy wheels all by yourself, with excellent results. We were a bit skeptical, but with replacement wheels costing anywhere from $300--600 apiece, if this kit worked 75% as well as was claimed, it could save BMW and MINI owners a ton of dough. We brought a kit home with us and gave it to one of our Advisors to test. He was very impressed, saying, "From 5 feet away my roommates could not tell where the repair was done. Even after I pointed out where the damage had been, it was still difficult to notice." We published his findings in the Spring 2010 issue of Fast Times.- http://blog.bavauto.com/2543 Since then, thousands of BMW and MINI owners have repaired their wheels using this kit, saving each of them hundreds of dollars. (One kit can do several wheels.) Yet we've also heard from a number of BMW and MINI owners who say that, before they commit to repairing their wheels, they'd like to see exactly what's involved. So we asked Bavarian Otto to make one of his famous DIY videos showing how to use this kit. Watch the video, see how simple the process is, then order the kit by calling 800.535.2002 or shopping in our online store at BavAuto.com. -------- 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.

Flushing & Replacing Engine Coolant in a BMW/MINI

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- The coolant flush is not especially difficult, but it does require more than simply removing the radiator drain plug. In this video we will demonstrate a coolant flush and change on a typical BMW with a later model 6-cylinder engine. The procedures shown can be applied to most BMW and MINI models. In our example (2002 E53 X5 3.0i), we'll show the specific steps to properly drain and flush the system, then fill and bleed with new 50/50 mix of distilled water and coolant. Watch the video and see the parts and tools used, below. For further assistance, please contact our agents at 800-535-2002 or visit our online store at bavauto.com. The Bentley repair manuals will cover model specific points, torque values and fill quantities. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional references. Our BMW and MINI cooling systems have the thankless task of dissipating the heat generated by our engines (and automatic transmissions), keeping them at an optimal operating temperature; not too hot, not too cool. In addition, the cooling system must keep corrosion and sediment from attacking the metal, plastic and rubber parts of the systems. Like the engine's lubrication system (oiling), the cooling system must function mile after mile and hour after hour for hundreds of thousands of miles and thousands of hours. Faults within either of these systems will typically result in catastrophic failure and potentially terminal engine damage. With these thoughts in mind, we can begin to understand why regular maintenance of the engine's cooling system is just as (or more) important as the other regular maintenance tasks that we perform on our BMWs and MINIs. We recommend a coolant flush every two to three years if using the BMW/MINI coolant and distilled water (more often if other coolant or "tap" water is used). While the base Ethylene Glycol (EG) Antifreeze/Coolant (basically) holds its antifreeze properties for a very long time, the additives for corrosion protection, lubrication, etc, do not. The recommended 2-year interval is due to the Silicate anti-corrosion additives that are "used up" and begin to drop out of solution after about two years of service. When this happens, silicate build-up can happen within the radiator, heater core and engine passages. When adding coolant, between flushes, always add the same coolant as the original fill. While adding a common green, orange, yellow or other, coolant (which have differing additive packages and base pH) will not immediately destroy your engine or cooling system, it will reduce the effectiveness of both the base and the added coolants. This will, at least, greatly reduce the service life or, at worst, start a corrosive cycle. We mix the coolant with the distilled water in a 50/50 ratio. Using distilled water for your 50/50 mix is not specifically required, but in doing so, your coolant mixture will be much more stable and far less corrosive in the long term. This is due to the absence of the minerals and impurities that are removed in the distillation process. These impurities encourage electrolytic corrosion to the engine block, cylinder head, hoses and gaskets, damaging these parts and causing failures and need for repairs.

What Happens When You Don't Change Your Oil Part 1
This is part 1 of what happens when you do not change your oil. This car is only 3 years old and has 135k miles on it.





Crankcase Vent Valve Issue, BMW 2004 E46
Burning the oil out after cleaning the spark plugs. Time to change the oil separator. BMW sells a kit to replace their defective valve/separator design. Update: No problems after CCV replacement Background: CCV fails, allowing oil into the engine cylinders and coating the spark plugs, causing the engine to flood and not start. To be sure this is your issue, pull a plug and see if its covered in oil, if so pull them all and clean them with de-greaser. I made the video to see what would happen on the first start since the cylinders were coated in oil still. Just to be clear, this smoke only happened for a few minutes after I cleaned and replaced the oil covered spark plugs. After that, the car was back to running clean even with the bad CCV. The reason to replace the CCV valve is so you don't have the oil flood again.
