Catalytic Converter Install

Labor for installing Cat was $125.00. Took some time. Would've been $150.00. I'm friends with the guys who run this shop and they are my go-to, highly trusted, mechanics. Been going there as long as...

'87 535i Won't Pass Smog Test; NO Level Too High

Plugs are new the last couple years. Valve cover gasket is very secure. Don't know about O2 sensor, but my mechanic said that high NO is likely caused by bad Cat. Don't think you can buy used Cats?...

Thanks. Sounds tough to remove the panel? Wouldn't know where to begin. I have all the tools, but an Instruction Guide of some kind would be helpful.

Not a single reply here. I posted this a month ago. I finally used an Allen wrench to close the roof all the way, to protect from rain.

How do I remove the power steering pressure hose from a '87 BMW 535i?

Gotcha. Thank you. I think I'll try this myself. How many quarts of fluid does the '87 535i hold? What type of specific fluid (brand, type, etc...) do you recommend, or should I just save the old and...

'87 535i Battery Will Not Stay Charged!

I believe it's a dead draw somewhere. The battery is only 4 months old and still under warranty. That's not it. I took it in for a charge, and the guy said it charged fully in about 10 mins! The car...
