I have just brought a e34 530i and it has a oil leak which looks like its coming from the head gasket, is this comon on the 530i? Also i was wondering if it has asc and if so how can i turn it on/off, i cant find a asc button. Is the e34 530i any good?
p.s im new to this forum and BMWs.
Dunno if you've had this fixed or not as it's been a while. But I would suggest that it would be the tappet/rocker/cam cover gaskets rather than the headgasket...
Not an expensive or hard job to do these gaskets. This would be the first step, then wash it all down and re-inspect after driving for a bit.
Ok thanks. Ive been looking for a 4L m60 engine for a while now and the cheapest i could find in WA was 3500 minus ecu. Where did you buy your engine?
I will look into it, hopefully i will have a engine before the end of the year Im only 18 so am half way through an apprenticeship as a machanic. Ive done a fair few engine swaps ( mostly deisels) and my old man seems to know a bit about cars. From what ive read i can swap in a 4L and use the same wiring harness but change the ecu. Im looking for a 6 speed box as well.
Have you had your car at the motorplex before?
