Just curious, does anyone know exactly what unplugging the MAF sensor does on a diesel?
I imagine it will stop dpf regen and reset fuel adaption values to default while it can’t read the MAF.
Is there anything else unplugging modifies or disables?
I've been a victim for a while now of the horrible over night battery drain! I've followed some really good posts on here that helped but ultimately my fault was one that wasn't mirrored here. So I want to give back to our community in hope it'll save someone else time. I've...
I have a problem with my car.
When I start the engine it idles erratically and some white smoke comes out of the exhaust. It does it for about 30 seconds to a minute, then it runs normally. Sometimes after starting the engine or even when the engine has been on for a while, it...
I'm sure this has been posted a thousand times and to be honest I have been trolling over all the forums for the past 3 weeks and stupid amount's of googling! I have never seemed to find my answer, so here goes, in hope someone has done this!

I have a BMW 318D M47 engine. 224,000 miles, brand new turbo.
The first issue I'm having is the turbo is boosting at idle. You can hear it spooling up, on my phone it says it's boosting at 0.8psi.
It doesn't always do it. Most of the time it's reading a vacuum of 0.7
2nd issue you can really...
I have a 68 plate 318d. When I am slowing and changing into lower gear (manual), occasionally the car revs when I depress the brake after the clutch. BMW assistance advised that this is an anti stall function and the dealer suspects it's rev matching. My question is why does it rev up...
BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
First of all hello to everyone and i'm new in this forum.
Turbo on my 318d 2003 gave up and i need it replaced. For me it would be just too expensive to order a brand new one and i haven't (also my mechanic) been able to find a used or restored one from anywhere. As i understand its not...
Hi, new to the forum so apologies if this is in the wrong section!
Looking to buy my first BMW and found a manual 2012 318d locally. Just looking for any advice on what to check for and if the official mpg figures are remotely realistic.....! 62mpg combined would be great, but what can I expect...
Hi all. First post..
My brother's UK 2011 318d would not start yesterday, cranks but that's it.
I suspected in-tank fuel pump as I couldn't hear it prime with ignition on.
With the pump electrical connector off, multimeter shows no power to pump during either ignition-on or cranking. Ground...

Hi everyone, new to the forum.
I recently bought a mid 2011 E90 318D with the engine seized for a project. As i understand the timing chain guides wore away and shards of plastic blocked the oil pump and starved the engine of oil.
The engine code is N47D20C i believe.
I have sourced a very...

I was wondering if someone can assist. My 2014 BMW 318D lost power on the motorway driving at 70mph and cut out. The car doesn't start and it had to be rescued. It cranks longer but doesn't fire up.
This is the first it happened and its an excellent car only covered 66k miles.
New to this forum, apologies if I have done something incorrect or missed some information!
The dreaded dpf light came on on Sunday. Took my car to the mechanic who showed me the error code (4010 - exhaust back pressure sensor before particulate filter, signal) and advised me to buy the part...
I've been cleaning the EGR on my N47D20 engine today and there's a hose that goes over the top of it. It was very brittle, so when I disconnected it to get at the fixings, it literally came away in my hand. I've had a poke around on realoem.com to try to identify the part, but I"m not...
Hi all, been all over the site and can find no answers to my query; so here goes ....My son's 2007 e90 318d 6 speed manual (start/stop) gearbox has gone west and he now needs a replacement one, I have been looking all over the place to find one and was wondering if a gearbox from say the e90...
I am considering buying a 318d M Sport 2006. Its covered 90000 miles.
Are there any common issues that i should look for when viewing the car?
Also is there anything that generally need replacing/fixing around the 90-100k mileage?
Any help will be appreciated.
