In Reply to: Most important thing is to verify the block... posted by Tiger on July 31, 2001 at 12:41:24:

you will see one with the block already changed" then you say you think the problem is overblown. Well if most have the block changed then the problem is definitly not overblown. I have a 95 540 with 72K miles and I have the orig. nikasil engine and my car idles perfectly. My gut feeling is that I will not have a problem and that the majority of nikasil engines are not replaced. So I agree with you but you threw me a curve with your first statement about the majority being replaced.
