Fanx ! Lads !

At Last ma sounds are blasting once again and I'm equipped with a new key just incase !!!!!

The web page was scary as i don't like to give out bank and password details so of to the local dealer once again was the only answer, but thanks for the info all the same as I was able to download the correct way to input the code -- which as they say is music to my ears, 8-) :y ;D

Hi peps,
After fixing ma headlights and generally messing around with the electrical system, Imagine ma delight to find ma juke box in safe mode ! Pls control yersel - laughing too much hurts !

Does any one know a way of sorting it ?????

Perhaps maybe a replacement HU that would still allow the display on the dash to function !!!
OOOOH by the way, money at the moment is to tight to mention, so value for money has got to be the order of the day.

Omega General Help / Quik Quiz !
« on: 06 May 2009, 22:18:24 »

Being the lazy Sod that I am - I know someone here can answer my question !

While trying to order a new Cam Belt and tensioner for my tractor I came across various listings online and could not for the life of me remember what the engine code was to order the parts,

My Miggy was born in the year 1997 with the BMW 2.5TD Heart,

My question is does anybody know what this engine code would be for ordering parts ???

Bonus points for anyone who can suggest a reasonable site for ordering a new starter motor for her !

Thankx to everyone who posted !!!  :y :y :y

My miggy is back up and motoring   :)  Missed ma miggy so much  :(

Dragging my tools out the garage and my heels too I was delighted to find that the complete plastic impeller had broken off the water pump shaft !
Water pump from the local autoparts cost £38
Smile on my face when we went out and played in the rain tonight - pricless  ;D ;D ;D

LOL ! " Whip it out ! "  :y

With a little bit of luck when it does come oot the fins will be awol !

The water pipe the runs along the drivers side rocker cover is a metal pipe that t's off to the bottom of the header bottle via a rubber hose ?? Cannie find this HBV !  :'(

What of the missing fins from the water pump ?? Are they easily retrived from the block or is a fishing expedition ? Time will tell eh ??  :-/

Will try and post the pics I have of the circ pump !  :y

Tonight I was able to have a good look for this heater bypass valve and didnt find one, either it has been removed - or this model which is a 97 wasn't fitted with one - more likely I'm losing the plot altogether   :o

The mysterious selonid valve thingy turned out to be a water circ pump of sorts which was under the header bottle - doeasn't appear to be working with either the heater running on full blast ( which didnt really get warmer than a breath ) or the AC on.

The car was running for a good 30 mins and during which the revs were held at 3K and the header bottle topped off and watched for escaping exhaust gases. The car was held at 3K for a good 10mins after which the temp began to rise above 90 on the gauage. Didn't notice any difference in the level or any bubbles !

As the temp rose the water started to seep over the edge of the header bottle, it then slowly began to bubble and get warmer as the steam began to rise - the kettle was ready  :y

Hopefully this indicates that the water is being boiled off in the block and the head is ok ???

Would love to know what this pump is and where the best place to shop for it and a water pump ??? - Ebay ??? Unable to post pic of pump !

Would also appreciate any advise or pointers from somebody who has done a water pump on a td , other than get somebody else to do it   ;D  ;D

Once again I have to take my hat off to all who have tried to help me resolve this overheating issue ! Fanx !!  :y

I have taken a good look around the engine and didn't find what I was looking for ! -- the old peepers aint what they useed to be !!  8-)

After having a good looky looky around where the water pipes go through the bulkhead - I even tried to follow the pipework back to locate said valve - having no luck I did manage to locate what appears to be some selonid operated valve ???

Will get one of the kids to show me how to upload a photo of this asap so hopefully somebody can tell me i'm trippin and to looky looky behind the head or whatever  ::)

Will keep looking for this valve thou and --- no you can get a manual for this engine, Haynes dont cover it on a BMW diesel either !

THE BOY !  Do hope your wrong ! But from what I've seen on the site so far - u could be right again !

Thankx for the pointers gents !!
As a trip to the local halfords for a workshop manual has proved fruitless I will need a little more help identifing the heater bypass valve and where it can be found lurking.
Is the valve easy to remove and test ???

Now that I think about it ! The heater in the car never was the warmest ! Could this have been an indication of something that I missed !!

Got ma mind on my miggy and my miggy on my mind !!   :-/

Ok Read this and tell me I'm wrong !!! The engine is the "bullet proof" 2-5td BMW unit that has performed perfectly even though most of the miles I have covered thus far have been side ways or over the legal limit I think, but wouldn't recommend to law following citizens, so in short the dog does hunt !!
  After a recent qwik trip to Sunny Aberdeen the COOLENT LEVEL warning was displayed on the way home, (nothing new there eh ?) around 10 mins later the temp shot up and I nursed the car to the garage refilled the header bottle which took very little water ? and made my way home.
Checking the car over the next day I found that the oil and water were in the places they should be but still after running for an hour or so the car began to over heat again !
I cut the centre out of the thermostat which made no difference even though it wasn't opening fully when it was tested !
The fan is viscous and turns as it should !
Suggestions so far have included air locks, a cracked head that is letting exhaust gases into the water system and a knackered engine.
Admittedly when you pull the overflow pipe from the header tank and hold the revs steady - water will fire out the bottle ? It does suggest that the pump is doing something but I fear not enough ?
Any suggestions and how to fix are welcome along with possible suppliers of said parts !

Well done lads, sorted the lights !! Fank ####! The range and brightness are superb, don't know what some people are talkin about !! Perhaps they also need to go and pull the lights oot and check for bad connections.

Hello again Hello ! Just thought I'd let you know !
My Xenon Bulbs don't work right, one is oot ! awh shoot !
Maybe I should have got that Beemer !
Instead a got this bulb at the dealership  -   it came with a free reamer !  

Yeah I know don't give up the day job !

My green 97 2.5td has developed a puzzling problem ! The ns HID stopped working and after checking the fuses I was forced to give the nice man behind the counter (who should have been wearing a mask) £144 plus vat for a replacement bulb ! ooooch ! After carefully fitting it - ensuring that the bulb was not touched etc etc it made not one dam bit of difference. The usual lunch room know it all f all has suggested that it may be the driver unit ?????

Has anyone had any similar probs or experience of this ?? And what the hell and where is this driver unit ???

Please Help - Driving around with the side lights and fog lights is pissing me off not to mention any other drivers.

Newbie Welcome Area / Hello peps!

Yes ! Yes ! Yes as you will have gathered by now I'm a Newbie! With two left thumbs who doesn't have a clue what he's doing. Although I did manage to find this site and let me tell you the future does look :y
Please help if you can !
Just recently the ns headlight stopped working so the first port of call was the fuse's, which revealled nothing. The second was an expensive trip to the local Dealership for the purchase of a xenon bulb at yes ! Some of you will Know £144 + vat ! Ouch !!! And would you adam and eve it after three days wait for the bulb, a frantic 1Hr by torchlight last night I'm still blind in the one eye !!! I was very careful not to even shake the bulb as it was replaced let alone let anything touch it, at that price it does make you pay attention to what you are doing! Would love to hear any similar type of problems and how they were rectified or if you have any pointers etc ????
