Hi everyone, I have just joined your "clan" and am looking forward to chatting with everybody. I live in South Africa on the Kwa Zulu Natal coast. I recently purchased a immaculate e28 518I AT (M10) motor. This car has been sitting in a garage for nearly 5 years. I replaced the battery and drove it home after which I serviced it. The car goes wonderfully except for the pinging I can't get rid of. I use 95 octane unleaded fuel. Can someone help or give advise? Thanx in advance.
Thanx for the response. No knock sensors on this model, plug gaps are 100%.
I will try a lower octane. Do you know the correct way of checking ignition timing with a stroboscopic timing light. The front crank pulley has one mark only (TDC) how do I get the timing adjusted to X degrees BTDC without marks on the pulley? I think it must be about 25 to 30 degrees BTDC.
