    Hi All, I've recently started to notice a grinding noise when turning either way, but mostly at low speed. I decided I must have low power steering fluid (ATF) so decided to locate the top up point. I failed massively on this, cannot find it anywhere. Can see screen wash, oil and coolant but...

    Hi all, I'm Andy & I'm a newbie on the forum. I've got a 316ti SE (2000 W reg) Had an awful rattling sound recently which I managed to narrow down to the catalytic converter heat shield. I removed the heat shield completely and this seems to have cured it. What are the implications of no heat...

    I have an usual grinding noise that came on quite quickly this past week after a 600 mile trip. I noticed a noise that was quiet and high pitched, I could only hear it on the motorway cruising at around 50-60mph. The noise changed to a light grinding noise that has gotten a little worse over the...

    Hello! I recently bought e36 323i. I noticed early that 2nd and sometimes 3rd gear grinds when I try to shift in fast at high RPM or even worse if I downshift at high RPM. Nothing like this happens if I wait a second or 2 before shifting into these gears. Kinda seems like the clutch doesnt fully...

    This was weird, last night I was pulling into a sidestreet and slowed down to a stop and as I slowed I heard this horrible grinding sound and the rpm gauge was at 0 but the engine was somehow still running. As it didn't sound good I turned it off, then turned it back on and it made the grinding...
