    Hi Gents,

    I have a 318i e46 which shows -40 C on the dash. I am presuming its a censor which is gone faulty. Is it something that i can chnage myself ? I must admit i am new BM owner and not super comfortable in opening up engine. I am a good step by step follower.

    Can some one help me please with this, ie- if i can change it myself and how.

    Secondly, my car jerks and shakes when i let go off the accelerator. It should come back to 0.8 ( 800 rpm ) and stay there. But mine goes down to 500 and goes up to 800 and then back to 600 and stayes there and makes the car seems like going to stall and jerks. If i keep the gas pressed a little and take it upto 1000 rpm , its fine and no jerks or shakes on the body. It happens when i am stopped , such as traffic lights. Any ideas why its happening and how i can fix it please?

    Advise on this 2 matter will be greatly appriciated. I know you guys are genious and well equipped with vast knowledge . So, here i am asking for your help. If some one would give me some time and have a look at my car that will be absolutely superb. I am in heathrow area, Uxbridge. I am willing to travel reasonable mileage for it. Thanks a lot.

    DJ

    The sensor is under the front bumper, just in front of the road wheel, -40 is the default setting for when the sensor is knackered or missing.

    Sensor should be located on the NS (passenger side) behind the bumper next to the brake duct... you will probably find you have to remove a section of the aggregate shield that covers the underside of the engine
