With ever increasing demands for fuel efficiency and power, modern combustion engines are now direct fuel injected. This means the tip of the injector lies in the combustion chamber for the fuel to be injected directly where it is required for minimum waste and maximum efficiency. Unfortunately, the side effect of this is that the [...]

To meet European emission standards, modern BMW diesel engines have included the use of swirl flaps to increase efficiency at low engine load. Due to the nature of being a moving part, wear can occur at the pivot and failure is all too common. Should you suffer this, catastrophic engine damage is very possible. Removal of these valves [...]

At Munich Power, we're able to replace these seals. Many workshops shy away from this task due to the complexity [...]
