  1. E39 2002 M54B25 - rough idle

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hey guys, I've been having some issues with rough idle after stopping the car and putting it in the neutral (manual gearbox). I've already replaced the MAF and the Idle control valve but that didn't help. I've also replaced the O-ring on Disa valve. The idle sometimes falls really low and the...
  2. 2002 E46 318i - Occasional black smoke.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, My 318i Touring (N42 engine) is generally running fine, also showing no fault codes. However occasionally it does belch out a big cloud of black smoke, then continuing as if nothing happened. It seems to occur mostly when moving off after having been stuck in traffic, idling for a while...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Today had some problems with my car, basically at one point after pushing the gas the car started "shaking" and afterwards started sounding weird. Guessing it's injectors. Soon after checked it with INPA, no fault codes and only thing in the reds was the selective mass adjustment for cylinder 4...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello, I have problem with 4th vibration but only when I decelerate. When i put a clutch pedal or gas (it does't matter how strong is pressed) everything is okay.

    BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    Hi, I’ve started to get quotes for repairs/resprays to my 330i Touring. It’s just flown through another MOT but the paintwork needs a refresh. For context, it’s on 230,000 miles...so I only want to invest so much. The interior is v smart. The bonnet and one wing have lots of stone chips...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, can anyone tell me if the pre fuel pump on my E46 330d should stay on while the engine is running, or is it there simply to prime the engine before it is started up (Then switches off)? Thanks Paul

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So, after the rear of my car fell off the jack… (don't ask!). The suspension was noticeably wonky - one wheelarch was a couple inches lower than the other. I replaced the springs, and it seems better but it's still not even - one side is still an inch or so higher than the other and I can hear a...

    Well this weekend I picked up a 2002 BMW e65 745i for the bargain price of £400. "Whats wrong with it?" you ask... well, all of the things! The car has stood for 6 years, mostly indoors, but the leaves in the trays say not always. I've known of the cars existence for about 8 years - 10...

    OK, you all have permission to laugh at me - but only if you offer some useful advice afterwards…! Yesterday I was changing the DSC pressure sensor, but dropped the old one as I got it out (it's in one of those places you can't get a good grip). As it's now leaking brake fluid I tried to get...
