E38 body undoubtedly is my favorite BMW 7 series sedan and one of the best looking 4 door executive cars period! This era of cars together with E39 - 5 series, E36 and E46 - 3 Series generations are the last decent cars from BMW that still have the quality of the materials from the 90's and even 80's. And yes, they have their problems too, but Nothing like the Era of the plastic BMW's starting with E60, E65 and the following cars with the Turbo- JUNK motors. ( E90 an E92 M3 with a S65 engine excluded). It is a real shame that "The Ultimate Driving Machine" is turning to be a company producing way too many and pointless X- drive and ugly SUV's and Crossovers with awful design and poor reliability. Not to mention the absolutely terrible resale value. I wish the executives in Munich wake up soon and look at carefully the Iconic Real Bimmers like E24, E28, E30 M3, E36 M3, E39 M5 ....

I did this same timing chain job on my 01 540i in my garage. My impact didn't have enough clearance to get the main crank bolt off. Used a floor jack shaft as a 5 ft cheater bar and cranked on that bad boy for hours before I got it to lose. But I was lucky the pulley just came off. Watching you do this job gives me flashbacks. I wish they just used 4 timing chains like the previous v8 instead of a really long chain with crucial plastic that would be jealous of a legos durability. In a different life if I wasn't in the career I'm in I would love to be an apprentice to Car Ninja, madd Respect.

plastic guides can last hundreds of thousands of miles if you use synthetic oil, change it every 5K to 10K miles and also replace the timing chain tensioner once in a while

I have multiple co workers with BMWs, from e46 3 Series, e64 6 Series to F10 5 Series and none of them run without minor to major failures. Oil burning engines, water leaking doors - and none was happy with regular BMW shop' s Repair success. I think you're really lucky to have someone like the ninja going proper ways instead of factory warranty backed solutions that keep failing repeatedly.

This mechanic needs to know how to work on these, the crank pulley bolt must be removed with at least a 3/4 inch breaker bar as it will break almost every 1/2 inch one. 2 breaker bars and 1 ratchet should have told him that, also you are not to hold the crank in place with the locking mechanism in the rear by the flywheel. It needs to be held with a crank holding tool bolted to the pulley and let it rest on the frame.

I am amazed Johnny doesn't charge you extra for bringing mechanically (let's say) disappointing BMW's all the time. To me, each episode featuring a BMW does surprise me. My own experiences and mutual BMW drivers are less "eventfull". So it is find those BMWs time over time...although a good V8 would be less fun to feature in your Garage ;).

Well, is made by germans as well, and DOES unscrew properly thigh screw. It is meant to be like that! Idiots.. Couple of minutes later, voila! You don't deserve german cars!

"Timing chain guides?" THIS is why DOHC doesn't belong on V engines. Don't get me wrong...I love a high revving DOHC engine, but they are a poor match for a cross plane V8.

Sure they build great quality engines. You just need to know what engine to stay away from. Like 80 percent of them. N47 recall here in Europe. Why not use quality parts in the first place instead of losing millions on recalls where the whole engine needs to come out.

It looks like BMW has been systemically exploiting a weakness that they knew or ought to have known existed on all timing chain driven engines with plastic guides and or defective hydraulic tensioners, and tensior blade. This isn't what engineering is about. This is exactly how you do not engineer anything of the kind of critical function these parts are intended to perform. Doesn't this show perfectly the myth. Even BMW diesel engines have no life that one is entitled to expect from a diesel engine because they have built in the weakness and even mandated that the weak part does not require service for the life of the vehicle. I suppose that means the kind of 129,000 mile life for a diesel engine because it was designed to throw its chain when the twee weak parts break. Let's say the argument is that that is not what BMW are doing? Then we must ask ourselves why they did not design a fail-safe system that does not sacrifice the engine in such catastrophic way when these timing parts fail. BMW treated the N47 engine owners terribly, putting them through hoops to have their smashed engine diagnosed when it will not even turn. Why are owners forced down that dead-end road? The dealer seems to be able to take a lot of money to diagnose these catastrophic failures; that should not be the onus of an owner, when these parts are not madated for any service.

Very interesting and entertaining. However, it comes to mind that if you edited this to cover only the problem issues on the 740! and perhaps talk more about the cam chain failures and the abysmal way BMW treated those owners, that would be quite a good cause of a stir. That's the only way to deal with some companies. Its' when people understand that BMW quality is really just a myth.

Hey there Mr. Hoovies. I was wondering if you might be interested in 2 1994 Mercedes benz s500. Both needs a little work but both starts. Selling both together for $2500. One has Amg monoblock rims in great condition. I would love for these cars to make a appearance on your channel. Hint! Hint!

Car manufacturers were taking the piss. They kept making their cars more and more complicated instead of trying to find a simper solution like electric cars. Sure they have their issues, but the engine is way, way, way more simpler and have far fewer parts. No water pump, no radiator, no radiator fan, no many parts that are no longer needed. Car manufacturers should have gone for that at least 20 years ago. Their internal combustion engines have reached such level of complexity that the only way to improve them any further is to get rid of them.
