I drive s similar year 325i with the same engine, average approximately 28 miles per gallon of spirited driving. You should get between 26 and 30 depending on how aggressively or conservatively you drive. Use mid or premium grade gas and you'll get slightly better fuel mileage.

SOURCE: radio has no sound or intermittent sound.bmw e39 5 series '00.

You might want to suspect a stereo amplifier. Does your car have DSP? In any case, look in the trunk on the left hand side. You will find your radio amplifier back there. It will have about a 3in connector with a bunch of twisted pair wiring. Remove the connector and make sure there is no water contamination. All sound processing takes place in the amp.

If you mean the engine coolant fan, then yes most fans will run until the engine cools down to a specific temp.

Engine,when cranking,sounds like an engine cranking with spark plugs removed;like no compression.


the bmw 525I/530I ( E39) 2.5 l/3.0L engine id25 6S,30 6S (m54) 2001-2003 does not identify as an interference engine so there should not be valve damage
it is chain driven and you will need special cam shaft tools , tensioner locking tool and other special tools to do the job
basically a job for professionals with the correct tools and bmw knowledge
the first inexpensive job that you can do is to check that the chains haven't broken and that the cam shafts are rotating
next is a compression test to determine if the valves are in good condition
if that is good ( 155 -165 PSI) then run the fault codes to determine what may be failing
after that you will know if it will be expensive to repair
