    russlan44 neglected child Maintenance/Project

    So after 7 years and wifey mentioning time to time that she wouldn't mind driving manual car again and prefers it would be a bmw. Her current car is 2012 priusV and im driving 2010 prius and our family car is 2010 Sequoia, so we moved on from bmw's about 5 years ago. 7 years ago we had 1 kid and second on way, she drove 2003 imola red 6spd manual, she got an upgrade to e60 auto, shortly after we were expecting 3rd kid and sold the e60 and got 07 tundra 4 door short bed, and that was her daily for 5 years. Slowly we moved towards Toyota's, last month we were visiting my brother who owns e36 m3 and e60 550i, walking up the drive way between 2 bmw's wife mentioned to me that she wouldn't mind driving the manual one, which is m3 and would trade her prius for something manual.

    I didn't tell wifey about 2003 Imola red 6spd ZHP with 150.000miles purchase, she got home with kids, she was not happy about it, kids were super excited about it. I handed her the key and told her she can be the first one to drive it. Of course she got in, cranked it up and it started. I checked the fluids before she started it but did not drive it. I bought it sight unseen except couple of pictures, no test drive or maintenance log. This will be a slow maintenance project due to work, school and family time.





    The headache begins.................
    Idle is bouncy

    Took off front bumper to check why horn is not working found some ripped wiring to both sides missing plug for horn on drivers side and passenger side missing plug for thermo switch and fender liner doesn't even have a hole for it. Crappy electrical tape job on AMBIENT air sensor and fog light wire cracked in different places. Both horns are not working either.

    Did a vacuum leak test and found my leak coming from camshaft position sensor, while swapping out to new camshaft position sensor, it appears to me the previous owner had changed it and in the process swapping it used huge pliers or pipe wrench to unscrew variable timing solenoid and left teeth marks on it and smooting some of it out.
    Idle is not jumpy anymore as it used to.

    Glove and zip tie over intake

    Hopefully that will solve my check engine problem. Aldo I think it's still running rough like misfiring.

    Thatís a brilliant DIY smoke machine! We used a bike pump and a soldering iron to melt some plastic for smoke haha.

    As for image hosting, I use Flickr when Iím uploading via desktop. On mobile I use the Tapatalk upload but the quality is pretty crappy and it reduces resolution like crazy.

    While I was changing the starter I wired up new horns. Is there a way to turn off daylight running lights without coding?

    Wanted to upgrade my basic rear view mirror, I got one with home link and compass. I turned my mirror to the side to take it off and this happened, it snapped off with metal ring that it holds on. Also plugged in the new mirror, home link and compass aren't lighting up, will need to check the pins. Checked my trunk before getting the new mirror and it said pre wired for home link.
