  2. Swirl flaps blanked and egr blanked. Car won't start. Temp in red

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, so after reading lots regarding swirl flaps I bought a blanking kit and did it myself along with the egr blanking. Checked all the connections and sensors before I was putting the parts back in place so I'm positive there's nothing disconnected. The car would start after and the temp gauge...

    Hi, I bought a used 116d ED Plus on a 15 plate two weeks ago. Everything has felt fine however it has at times felt a bit flat/sluggish. For example if on a motorway with cruise control locked to 70 it would struggle to maintain speed when going uphill. Today a friend of mine also felt the...

  12. 2006 E91 320d swirl flaps

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi. Recently purchased an e91 320d. Done a bit of research before purchasing and I believe it’s NOT the n47 engine with the timing chain issues. But have read there can be swirl flap issues with these engines? I don’t think they’ve ever been taken out on it, plus it’s done 100k and is 12 years...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hey, So i recently opened up the air intake on my e46 to check to see if the swirl flaps had been removed or not. To my surprised they are still in place after 150,000 miles. Now if they have lasted all that time, are they worth removing? They seem to be jammed in the open position, is it...
  14. 330d - No swirl flaps AND no blanks - CONFUSED!

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So, long story short, bought a swirl flap blanking kit of ebay and have gone to fit them. Got the manifold off today and found there are neither flaps or anywhere for them to be blanked off. Can someone confirm if I'm being an idiot missing something? Or is this a different manifold off...
  15. 2010 E91 330d - EGR, Swirl Flaps and a retune

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Another familiar issue to you - but new to me. I've got swirl flap error codes and the sticky black sludge in the throttle body and inlet mfd (I know because I removed the throttle to replace the glow plug controller). I've got a good used manifold (the later one with the flaps on the internal...

    Hi Guys I have just jumped ship from Mercedes to BMW and acquired a 320i xDrive M Sport tourer. I must say that BMW are not particularly helpful in sorting problems or giving advice. I have looked on your site via google search so I know the subject has been discussed with various views about...
  17. 320d M47 2007 (57) (163) swirl flaps

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, got some quotes to remove and blank swirl flaps. One local BMW independent specialist explained that my car has a revised inlet manifold and the swirl flaps can't simply be removed and blanked and that I'd need a new inlet manifold at around £500! Never come across this when reading this...

  19. Swirl Flaps, how do I tell if they've been removed? 123D

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi Guys, Is there an easy way I can check if the swirl flaps on my 123D have already been removed without taking the manifold out completely? Maybe using a borescope or something? Do the 2008 April models even have them? Is there a source that would tell me? Thanks!
