F30 EME machine

 Here is the EME machine on a F30 330E,,,,the car came in with check engine light on the fault was EME temp sensor short circuit no signal,,,performed the test plan and submitted a puma case to see if they see anything on there side.,,,the  EME is located under the car behind the drivers and in front of the left rear tire area. So I checked out the temp sensor which is located on top of the transmission,,,,the sensor connection and readings checked out ok,,,,so puma wanted me to replace the EME,,,,this picture is the old EME removed with coolant hoses and mounting brackets,,,,,removing and working on these high voltage cars are always scary,,,,the whole procedure shutting down the high voltage and also making sure not to damage any orange connector or harness could cause major harm when you activate the high voltage,,,,we don’t need any high voltage short circuits.

N47 diesel quality control valve

 I know this picture sucks but down there is the High pressure pump for the N47 Diesel engine ,,,,,the pump is located under the intake manifold and at the rear of the engine,,,,the car came in with check engine light on injector cut off cylinder 1,,,,so we have to submit a Puma case to release fuel injectors. So Puma wanted me to remove the quality control valve on the high pressure fuel pump,,,,the valve is bolted on the side of the pump with 2 bolts nothing fancy just difficult to get to. What they wanted to see if the screen was clean of any metal pieces,,,,as you can see it was clean,,,Puma wanted to make sure the high pressure pump was not coming apart,,,,so since everything was clean they had me replace the injector.

B58 engine

 Here a look at the inside of the new B58 6 cylinder,,,,as you can see the vanos units and timing chain are at the rear next to the firewall,,,,,that will be a fun job when the time comes,,,the cylinder head is more stream line,,,,the ins are more simpler,,,,the eccentric motor is now outside the cylinder head it is sitting at the top front of the engine next to the intake manifold.
