    Greetings, your advice much appreciated - we're suddenly caught out of our depth with our E84 X1 diesel. Stuck in rural France with advice that the turbocharger has blown and needs replacement - we experienced loss of power when accelerating accompanied by a loud, high-pitched whistling...

    Hi everyone, just looking for some advice. I've put a deposit down on a 2.0d X3 M Sport, it's a 2017 plate and only done 15,000 miles. I know that you can have DPF problems when diesels aren't run regularly on the motorway. Would you steer clear of a low mileage diesel? This one has obviously...

    Has someone been through this - I feel like I am in a very annoying massage chair that's got a bad motor. When idling, I can feel a vibration in the steering, driver seat, floor, and peddle, umm and the gear knob. When I rev the car between 80 and 120km it feels bouncy as if the wheels are not...

    When I hit 2-3revs a vibration appears right through the middle only when I'm accelerating. I've had a new clutch kit, dualmass flywheel, gearbox and its not fixed the issue. Tried the engine mount not that. Wheels are all balanced. Loosing my mind on what else to do!

    Hi- 320d N47 is haemorrhaging diesel from under the engine bay when engine running. First noticed a bit of a whistle when turning engine off after it had ran for a while. Then I noticed loads of diesel pouring out from underneath the engine. Any ideas if the two are likely to be related??

    I have a 2006 diesel E91 320d which suddenly started running rough, then wouldn't start. It has a fault code 3EC1 showing. I have seen videos of the camshaft sensor being removed on the petrol engines but can't find the sensor on my diesel engine. Does anyone know where it is located?
