Various Sensor Locations Required

Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:28 pm

Folks I got a DTUK box for my 2012 30d. I found a YouTube installation guide for a 330d and 530d (same engine) but the orientation appears to be different.

Can anyone show me where the rail pressure, boost pressure and camshaft sensors are on my engine please?!

Thanks in advance!

Also have a look at newtis.info (BMW Service Manual).

Cheers, forgot about it. However, none of the above names are coming up when I search!

Is the rail pressure sensor something here?

What else would the boost pressure valve be called?

Is number 10 the camshaft sensor?

Ideally I’d just like a photo of the engine with the 3 sensors circled :rofl:

I had another look at the video. Is it just the air duct that is in a different place on this engine?

I assume the common rail sensor is still going to be the same and under the foam under the engine cover, but are the boost sensor and camshaft sensor both at the back of the X5 engine too? If its just the duct that is different then thats all that has thrown me.

#3 is the pressure sensor

https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpa ... Id=13_1281

#10 is the cam sensor

As for the boost sensor that will be in the back, top or on the side of the intake manifold.

Right, well there’s no way the F30 and E70 engines are identical!!

Is the circled sensor the cam sensor?

Would number 13 be the boost sensor?

#13 is your pressure sensor as for the circled one its looks to be in the position a cam sensor would be....what are the last 7 digits of your VIN?

Called into my specialist on the way home and he pointed them out! Sorted now.

Cheers for assistance.
