  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I have recently purchased a 318ci for the summer and enjoying it at the moment (apart from the oil leaks!). However it has an annoying noise when you move off in first or reverse just as the clutch engages. It’s a sort of rattle/knocking. Lasts about 1-2 seconds then goes away until the next...

    Looking at buying a Z4, I specifically wanted the 28i engine as its a great combo of power and efficiency (Upto 40mpg).

    That's pretty much it to be honest! It's a plastic cover but doesn't have the small plastic nut on top. I read somewhere that it should be 36mm, but the sockets I've seen seem a bit small? I will double check before dropping the oil next time and not rely on the Haynes manual :confused

    Ever since I've had the car it has had a slow water leak from the junction between the plastic connection between the cooling hose feeding the back of the head and the head itself. This bit of plastic pipe appears to be attached to the head by two bolts and maybe there's an O ring in there...
