  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Yes guys, I'm back! I've carried out a very thorough research on forums and here is my story: I drove my car back home on the M1 when suddenly my car felt like it lost all of its power. I could no longer accelerate and my rev would barely move upwards (I was on a hill too which didn't help and...

    A new one today as I was just starting to drive the car: after 50 yards and a normal start up, I heard a massive bank like if someone had hit the car with a massive hammer, and then I saw oil on the road (centre and driver side ) when I reversed and smelled oil. I am guessing it is the gearbox...

  9. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    On a weekend away and the rear window - rarely used I might add - decides to go bang and drop into the door. Rather than waste my weekend stripping the door and besides I don't have a t20 to hand anyway, I have duck taped the window secure for now. But i have 3 trips coming up from next weekend...

    I have just bought a e46 320ci and have noticed that when you change up gear especially 1st and 2nd there is a slight bang when selecting gear? I reckon it is gear box / selector issue as it does it between gear changes when clutch is pressed down. But if i am going down the road with clutch...

    I need a little advice. I hoped I wouldn't be putting up a post like this as my second post, but sh*t happens! I bought a 2001 E46 320d estate just under 2 weeks ago. It's the 136bhp version, M47, with 110k miles. I bought it from an independent Land Rover/BMW/Jag garage (they'd had it in as a...

    As above, a bang was heard after 20 miles of 70mph driving, slowing down to 0, then trying to pull away in 1st. Car is a manual - trans oil was changed around 500 miles ago. No other transmission issues, gear lever a little sloppy (but always has been). Still engages all gears, no other noises...

    Driving along the morning, accelerating up a slip road onto the motorway, and all of sudden, doing about 40 mph 2500 rpm, and engine goes BANG, puff of black smoke from the back and instant loss of power. Pulled straight over and turned it off, no sign of anything wrong in the engine bay. Got...
