Newbie, bought a 95 740 iL with a couple problems
Thought I would drop in and say hi.
I just bought a 95 740iL, absolutely beautiful car.
It has a couple issues but sense I run a tire/repair shop I think I can deal with them ok.
Needs a tie rod assy and control arm on the right front and some front brake rotors.
Now for the real issue.
It has a rough idle. I've replaced the BOSCH +4 plugs with NGK's, ran some injector cleaner through it and SeaFoamed it as well (3 times).
While it idles a bit better it's still not good.
I stuck a vac gauge on it and it has erratic vac at idle which tells me the valves are not seating properly.
So....... I have a new (to me) 98k mile engine being delivered in the AM.
I would rather not swap engines as I tend to get REALLY carried away, Timing chains, valve cover gaskets, pan gaskets, water pump. etc etc.. I just tend to go nuts.
Last time I did this I ended up completely refreshing the damn "Good used engine" before I even had the old one out.
Any suggestions before I pull the engine?
