Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read this in advance:
Well, I purchased a 1995 740i about a year ago, and the car is great, however I am approaching 92,000 miles. I read a list of TSBs for the car and there are over 200 of them so I got a bit freaked, mainly over number 219.
*Engine - Degradation of Idle Quality By High Sulfur Fuel*
A friend had told me that this was a tsb that was released some time back, and that it will eat the block in this car over time, he said it was something due to the block being made i europe and that the gas over here was too rough on it. Lately the engine has been idiling rough and I am afraid it might be due to this, so my questions are the following:
1. is this something I should be worried about? I know BMW did not make a recall on this as far as I know, but they did fix the blocks up until the year 2000 (or so I was told)
2. What would I be looking at to fix this? Labor and all, or is it even worth paying for?
3. If it is worth fixing or not a huge issue, is there any reccomendations that you could give for proper maintenence with my car having 92k miles.
Thanks for all the help,
