  • BMW 520i -EKPM Fuel Pump Control Module issue

    Early this morning, a beautiful looking BMW 520i showed up discharging from a tow truck as we rolled up our garage shutters for the new day.  

    The car had a fuel pump control module failure after we carefully diagnosed the fault with special equipment.

    The electronic fuel pump control module (EKPS) controls the power to your BMW fuel pump. EKPS control unit is a different component from the fuel pump.

    The EKPS unit is usually located in the trunk, side panel or under the rear seat while the fuel pump is mounted on top of the fuel tank. 

    When replacing the EKPS, the new module is required the be reprogrammed (coded) to the car.

    Below are some symptoms of a failed EKPS.

    1. Warning light on iDrive screen.
    2. Engine cranks but unable to start.
    3. Fuel pump’s voltage too low.
    4. Engine starts but shakes violently.
    5. Hesitation on acceleration.
    6. Engine misfires.

    If you are experiencing any of these problems, have your mechanic retrieve the fault codes from the EKPS module.

    The faults were diagnosed accurately with special scan equipment and the EKPS was replaced and verified by our QC team that the fault was gone.

    A BMW 520i showed up being towed to Revol Carz Garage for a EKPM (Fuel Control Pump Module) failure.

  • A BMW 520i arrived with mechatronics failures.

    MECHATRONICS” derives from a combination of the words, “mechanical” and “electronics”.

    In the BMW’s design of the Automatic Transmission, for example, it uses an internal Transmission Control Module and Solenoid Package known as a Mechantronics.

    Transmissions with solenoids are known to have problems over time and require the mechatronics to be replaced due to the solenoids being sealed as part of the mechatronics unit.

    A BMW 520i in particular, experienced mechatronic failures in the transmission and headed to Revol Carz Garage for an overhaul.

    Replacement of the mechatronics unit can be expensive.  However, we source our original replacement parts directly from reliable sources which we then code to suit our customers’ BMWs.

    Common symptoms for a failing Mechatronics :

    • Subtle jolt from gearbox when slowing to a stop.
    • 5th gear jolt when cruising at motorway speed.
    • 5th to 6th gear shifts are harsh.
    • Delayed engagement of reverse gear.
    • Transmission fail safe mode when shifting from 1-2 and 2-1.
    • Gear monitoring faults stored.

    The car is lifted to access the mechatronics in the transmission box.
    The mechatronics assembly overhaul in progress.

    Old and new mechatronics plates lying side by side.
    Valve body pistons awaiting replacement.
    Mechatronics overhaul is successfully completed.

  • A Volkswagen Golf A7 arrived for engine misfiring issue

    Hi Everyone,

    If your car’s engine stalls or misfires, it may be symptoms pointing to a faulty or failing ECM.

    An illuminated Check Engine light is another possible symptom of a problem with the ECU when the computer detects a problem with any of its sensors or circuits. The symptoms may not appear to have any sort of pattern to their frequency or severity.

    An engine control unit (ECU) or engine control module (ECM) controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimum engine performance.

    The ECU plays an important role in the performance of the engine and any issue with it can cause problems with the overall function of the car. Computer systems in modern cars are getting more sophisticated and can be difficult to diagnose.

    A Volkswagen Golf A7 which experienced an engine misfiring issue arrived at Revol Carz Garage for inspection and our professional diagnosis revealed a faulty ECU module.

    The issue was promptly resolved with replacement of an original ECU.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    Our updated diagnostic equipment, we found the ECU module was faulty. The picture shows the replacement of ECU Module in progress.
     

    A new ECU module lays side-by-side with the faulty unit.

    Preventive maintenance is always better than repair. It is important to understand about wear and tear before the components break down totally.

  • A BMW 730i arrives for a total gearbox overhaul.

    Hi Everyone,

    The gearbox (transmission) is one of the most vital components of any vehicle. Shifting problems or sudden skip in the gear can be a cause for concern. The transmission of the vehicle is subjected to wear and tear due to exposure to extreme heat and frictions.

    The Mechatronics module performs complex shifts operations. The gearbox control communicates constantly with the engine control unit and the “communications” determines the ideal point at which to make a gear change.

    In short, the Mechatronic components represent the brain of the gearbox.

    If your car has any of the following symptoms, our experienced mechanics can help you;

    1. Surging in Drive gear.
    2. Surging in Reverse gear
    3. Lurching off the line from a stop
    4. Harsh 2 to 1 down-gear-shifts
    5. PRNDS flashing.
    6. Bad idling.
