NOTE: NOTE: Whenever a torque strut bolt(s) is loosened, this procedure must be performed. Upper and lower torque struts need to be adjusted together to assure proper engine positioning and engine mount loading. To prevent minimal upward lifting of engine, floor jack must be positioned as shown. See Fig. 1 . 1. Remove pencil strut. See Fig. 2 . Loosen upper and lower torque strut attaching bolt at suspension crossmember and shock tower bracket. Engine position may now be adjusted by positioning a suitable floor jack on the forward edge of transmission bellhousing. See Fig. 1 . 2. With engine supported, remove upper and lower torque struts attachment bolt(s) at shock tower bracket and suspension crossmember. See Fig. 3 . Verify that torque struts are free to move within shock tower bracket and crossmember. Reinstall torque strut bolt(s), but DO NOT tighten. 3. Carefully apply upward force, allowing upper engine to rotate rearward until distance between center of rearmost attaching stud on engine mount bracket (point “A”) and center of hole for washer hose clip on shock tower bracket (point “B”) is 4.7″ (119 mm). See Fig. 4 . CAUTION: Engine must be held in position with jack until both upper and lower torque strut bolts are tightened. 4. With engine held at proper position, tighten both upper and lower torque strut bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Install pencil strut, and tighten nuts to specification. Remove floor jack.

DESCRIPTION Some vehicles may experience a body vibration when driving approximately 55mph. This symptom is due to the characteristics of the No. 3 & No. 4 engine mounts. Modified No. 3 & No. 4 engine mounts have been established for service only. Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure. REPAIR PROCEDURE IMPORTANT NOTE: • This repair should only be performed if all tires and rims are confirmed to be in balance and all suspension components are in proper working condition. • Notify customers that use of the modified mounts will reduce vibration at cruising speed but may increase vibration at idle. NOTE: Because idle vibration may increase, it is highly recommended to continue using mass production mounts for all other service concerns. 1. Verify concern. 2. Replace the No. 3 & 4 engine mounts with service parts according to the appropriate Workshop Manual section 01-10 ENGINE REMOVAL/INSTALLATION. 3. Center the new engine mounts as outlined in ENGINE MOUNT CENTERING PROCEDURE. 4. Verify repair. ENGINE MOUNT CENTERING PROCEDURE No. 1, No. 3 and No. 4 Engine Mount Adjustment 1. Warm up the engine. 2. Raise and support vehicle on a hoist. 3. Remove engine under cover. 4. Lower the vehicle until the front tires lightly touch the ground. 5. Secure the engine and transaxle using an engine jack and attachment as instructed in No.3 Engine Mount And No.4 Engine Mount Rubber Installation Note in appropriate Workshop Manual, section 01-10 MECHANICAL. 6. Remove two bolts from No. 3 engine mount bracket. REMOVE THE BOLTS 7. Lift engine using jack until No.3 engine mount is lifted slightly from vehicle body. NOTE: • Do not raise engine too much or A/C pipe damage may occur. 8. Move the engine mount rubber or engine until installation hole on the vehicle body aligns with hole in the engine mount bracket. ENGINE MOUNT BRACKET 1532c SHOWN BEFORE ALIGNING THE HOLES SHOWN AFTER ALIGNING THE HOLES 9. Lower the jack and tighten bolts on No. 3 engine mount bracket. Tightening torque: 55.0-77.3 ft-lbf (74.5-04.9 N.m) NOTE: 10. With engine supported as described in STEP 5, remove four (4) nuts and two (2) bolts from No. 4 engine mount top plate. Remove top plate. NOTE: 11. Lift engine again using jack until No.4 engine mount is lifted slightly from vehicle body. NOTE: 12. With top plate of No. 4 engine mount removed, move engine mount bottom plate or engine until all four (4) installation studs on the vehicle align with the engine mount holes. • Do not allow the engine mount bracket to be misaligned. • To access the mount, remove battery box. • Do not raise engine too much or A/C pipe damage may occur. ALIGN THE 4 STUDS IN THE PLATE HOLES 13. Place top plate back on and tighten No. 4 engine mount bracket nuts and bolts to torque indicated. Tightening torque: A.32.5-45.0 ft-lbf (44.0-61.0 N.m) B.61.1-86.7 in-lbf (6.9-9.8 N.m) TIGHTEN BOLTS IN SEQUENCE SHOWN 1532e 14. Lift engine again using jack and loosen the two bolts on the No. 1 engine mount rubber until slightly loose on the No. 1 engine mount rubber.

1. General note. CAUTION: In MJ ’96 the camshaft timing belt was revised. Coolant pumps and timing belt tensioners with different idler pulleys are fitted in production. In service there are now only coolant pumps with two edges on the idler pulley available. It should be noted that when renewing the timing belt tensioner, a tensioner without an edge must not be fitted in conjunction with a coolant pump without edges. Converting a mechanical timing belt tensioner to an automatic timing belt tensioner is NOT permissible. In addition, since MY ’96 PTFE oil seals have been fitted at the front and rear of the crankshaft instead of the familiar Viton oil seals. CAUTION: Since 08.98 (build code WP), a revised oil pump has been fitted in conjunction with a revised oil pressure switch (green cover), and 5W 30 engine oil has been used. It should be noted that up to and including 07.98 (build code WM), an oil pressure switch with a black cover was fitted, and 10W-40 engine oil was used. Note: Installation position of the timing belt tensioner spring and the fuel-injection pump spring. DO NOT mix up the springs. 2. Detach the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve). 1 2 Disconnect the hose. Unscrew the bolts. 3. Detach the exhaust manifold. Mount the engine on an assembly stand. l Fit the mounting bracket. l Mount the engine on the assembly stand. Drain the engine oil. Detach the engine mounting. Note: Watch out for escaping oil. 7. Detach the oil pump with the oil filter.

A. Approved Engine Oils ^ For BMW gasoline engines all single grade and multiple grade, heavy duty (HD) engine oils* according to API classification: SE or SF. ^ For BMW turbocharged diesel engines all single grade and multiple grade, heavy duty (HD) engine oils* according to API classification: CD. ^ For BMW gasoline and diesel engines all single grade and multiple grade engine oils* according to API classification: SE/CD or SF/CD. *Engine oil may be either a mineral or synthetic base. ^ Special Oils: Because of their special viscosity/temperature properties, these engine oils can be used for outside temperatures from -22~F to 86~F (-30~C to + 30~C). Mo SAE 5W-30 is the only motor oil that has been tested and approved by BMW as a special oil. However, since special oils have friction reducing properties and consequen influence the break-in behavior of engines, they should not be used until after the initial 1200 mile break-in period. ^ SAE viscosity classes according to BMW standards conforming with normally predominating outside temperatures – see BMW temperature/viscosity table. B. Engine Oil Change Intervals The first oil change with oil filler replacement is scheduled for the break-in inspection at 1200 miles. Other Oil Changes ^ For cars with Service Indicator: when “OIL SERVICE” or “INSPECTION” display comes on, including oil filter.
