We had another annual tech session at our shop on Saturday, March 28, 2015. (click on the picture to see larger versions)
First up was a quick lesson on fasteners, their materials, the advances BMW have made, and the importance of torque specs.
Our second topic was all about BMW’s cooling systems. Including water pumps, system bleeding, electric water pumps, and why thermostats can set check engine / service engine soon codes in the engine computer (DME).
Our last topic focused on BMW’s V8 engines (did you know BMW used to make pushrod V8-engines? – don’t worry we didn’t either)… We covered the strengths and weaknesses of the M62 series V8s including a dead 4.4L and a dead 4.6L
A special thank you to the Utah BMWCCA chapter and to Michael Bontoft for the photography. See you next year!
