    Based on my research so far: P38 with Thor engine use Bosch Motronic 5.2.1 ECU. A very similar ECU is commonly found on various BMWs of the same vintage, E38 and E39 come to mind. The ECU uses DS2 serial protocol for diagnostics. The protocol is well known and documentation is available...

It has some issues and has been sitting for a year or two, I have experience reviving old BMWs so hopefully some of that patience I developed working through those problems will carry over. So first things first, I started down...

    Hi All- After no small amount of searching around and workshop manual scouring, I've come up against an issue that I can't readily figure out. The P38 is new to my garage (product of a spur of the moment trade, plus my D90 was getting lonely), and I'm working my way through it. The previous...

    Well. It's happened to me. Coolant had a pinhole leak which caused an air pocket. Temp only went into the red for a second. Luckily got home from across town after cooling it off and flushing the coolant. Pressure tested the system with the oil pan bolt off, and it was leaking coolant out...
