  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello. I have a 325i year 2001 that whenever it is turned on, the automatic transmission alert comes on, you have to wait about 30 seconds, turn it off and turn it on again and it already turns on P. This happens if the car is cold, once the temperature reaches half works well, and it can be...

    Hello All, I'm not that car tech savvy, and probably a case of a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I'm looking for some help with my 325i 2007 which has had an engine fault now for probably months that is steadily getting worse. We noticed a while ago sometimes there'd be a smell getting...

    I have a 2011 325i N53. I have it 6 months now and haven’t had any problems with it until now. First thing I noticed not right was when I pressed button to start and it cranked but didn’t start. I pressed button again after couple seconds to stop it and it started as normal on second attempt...

    Hi, I bought a 325 Ci about 2 months ago with a cleaned engine, I have just changed the anti roll bar bushes and found an oil leak coming from the top of the engine at the front but I don't think its the rocker cover gasket, is it the vanos unit? Is it an easy fix?

    Hi, I have a persistent misfire on cylinder #4. I have pretty conclusively eliminated plug, coils, injectors, compression, or DISA as the cause. Spark plug tester indicates that there is no spark, but just on that one cylinder. 12v and ground to coil connector are good. I am not sure how to test...

    Hi all, Not long got my car and curious as to what might be causing my issues.
