    Hello, Dave. My 325 E is firing only the #1 and #6 plugs. Have replaced plugs, cables, rotor and cap, ignition coil, computer, ignition relay and tested the resistance on the crank sensor. No idea what could be causing this. Could you shed some light?

    Do you know which of the fuel injection pressure testers that PP sells will work on my 73 1.7L DJET?

    Hello Dave,
    My '89 M3 E30 key won't turn past the 1st click. I have the whole assembly removed and I can' get the bobby pin into that hole about 1.5" deep, but I can't get the tumbler to come out. A locksmith suggested that perhaps I need to key to get to the second position before the bobby pin will be able to push the internal sping to get it out. Any suggestions?

    Dave, I mounted my Piloti Driving Lights and keep blowing the fuse!
    1) Do the lights need to be grounded to the chassis like the originals were? [Original lights appear to be grounded to the chassis through the mount as there is only a black hot wire coming out of the light housing]
    2) The gillotine style fuse that accompanies the driving lights is a 15A, the one plugged into my fuse panel was an ZF8A. Should I put in a BIGGER fuse?
    Thank you, Dave

    I am going to start replacing of the head gasket on my 98 528i. I was looking at the gas lines connecting to the metal piping / fuel rail near the fire wall. There is a metal washer-like at the hose/pipe connection. Can you tell me how to disconnect these?
    Thank you for your help.

    You can coil the wire up inside a deep-well 13mm socket.

    You can also grind a corner off of an extension, to leave room for the wire.

    The threads in the head are very delicate. Some people say to get the head warm because the aluminum expands more than the steel sensor, while others say that hot aluminum is weaker than cold. At the very least, spray it with a penetrating oil like Kroyl or PB Blaster. (WD-40 is not a penetrating oil.)
