My Ride: 04' 545i

I went and got a 1995 540i. You will undestand the E34 impact if you grew up with it. Anyway she needed a good home so i took her in. I bought all tools that were prescribed along with bentley and haynes manuals. I put her in the garage got my 11 year son involved, after opening the spak plugs the left side had oil but most of it was hardened the right side had a lot of oil on the plugs.
So old timers i need your help with this one plus she runs rich.
the engine was changed at 96000 kms now she has 220 kms. NO nikasil and yes the women did overheat the engine.
All good no codes, she runs smooth did clean the maf sensor.
And i am having a drink(s).
