General X5 Forum (E53) / Range 620
« on: July 13, 2018, 03:50:51 PM »
Never noticed before but my tank range won't go over 620.
Just filled up mid run and it showed 615 miles.
Drove off down duel and then onto motorway steady speed and it went to 620 after the first 5/6 miles then it has stayed at 620 for the last 95 miles.
Is 620 the max the readout can display.
Anybody else get this.
Car is a diesel 2002 e53.

Problems / Oil leak
« on: June 04, 2018, 02:39:26 PM »
My e53 3.0d Auto 2002 has just developed an oil leak.
Can't see where from but it drips on the right hand side when you are facing the car from the front.
Anybody got any idea what the common place to look would be.
Any tips welcome.
Thanks for looking.

General X5 Forum (E53) / Big favour if possible
« on: May 03, 2018, 09:28:15 AM »
On the way to the airport I stopped and could hear a ticking noise.
On looking I could see the serpentine belt starting to shred but it got us to our daughters where I was leaving the car thank god.
What I am after is the part number so I can order one toe delivered to my daughters so I can fit it for the return journey home.
My problem is the internet here in Egypt is cr@p and trying to search realoem is a no go.
Could somebody get me the number and possibly a pic of how it goes as it goes up down round and round lol.
Car is e53 3.0 diesel 2002 automatic.
Big thanks in advance.

Problems / Injector leak off pipe
« on: April 13, 2018, 08:36:31 AM »
I had a small leak on one of the injector leak off pipes so i ordered some new pipe.
Went to change it today and the new pipe leaks as well.
It is 3/8 pipe a standard size i thought but it was weeping where it pushes onto the injector.
All i had to do the job now was some silicone pipe thick stuff but a nice fit and no leaks.
My question is.
Is this silicone vac pipe ok to use on the injectors ?.
Anybody got a link to some normal pipe slightly smaller than 3/8 if that is possible.

General X5 Forum (E53) / Cluster swap mileage wrong
« on: April 11, 2018, 08:09:41 PM »
I have changed the cluster in my car.
And with some info off the net and PA-Soft 1.4 i have got rid of the tamper dot by changing the vin but i can't correct the mileage.
I need to add a few K to the new cluster 9751km to be exact.
Any help on this would be very welcome.
Old cluster.

New cluster.

Not a lot in it but would just like it the same.
Just noticed that the old cluster is showing all lit up pixels that is a first i think lol that is the reason i changed it and new cluster was only £35 delivered.

« on: April 01, 2018, 03:22:34 PM »
Anybody got a bluetooth dongle that is working on a 2002 3.0d or older.
If you have got one and it works a link or make/model would be good.

General X5 Forum (E53) / Reverse Camera to Aftermarket Head Unit
« on: March 08, 2018, 08:48:25 AM »
I have changed my aftermarket unit to one of the Android type.
Problem i have is the new unit needs a 12v input from reverse lights.
Being disabled i am limited to how much crawling about i can do.
My question is can i get a 12v from the PDC button up front i don't think the unit needs any power as such just a signal to say reverse is selected.
Thanks in advance.

Problems / Low Idle
« on: October 31, 2017, 12:45:55 PM »
Any body know a way if possible to increase the tick over on a 3.0d
When i first start my car the revs go to around 850 then drop to around 600/625 after 5 to 10 seconds.
After a run when the engine is hot and i come to a stop in traffic then it drops to 500 and i see the red oil light flicker unless i take it out of drive then the revs go up to around 550.
Oil was changed less than 3k ago and with good oil and man filter.
Any ideas.
