Re: Wierd Stomp Test Code
I don't want to say you may not be doing the test correctly but the codes are always 4 digits long and most codes will start with 12XX, with the exception of the "End of Codes" (1000)- and 14XX which means no fault codes stored. If your E34 is a European model, you may not be able to use the "Stomp Test" for codes. Have you checked your fuel pump? Try tapping on the bottom of your gas tank LIGHTLY with a rubber mallot.
Need Verification on CPS Reading
The Bently manual states on the M50/M60 engines it should be around 1280 ohms. My old sensor was reading 540 ohms. So I ordered a new one. I got an OEM crank sensor and it's reading the same 540 ohms like the old one. I called the BMW shop and they told me it "might" be correct. Can anyone tell me on their 530i V8 M60 engine what their CPS is reading? I'm wondering if the Bentley manual is wrong.
