    I recently got the gearbox adaptive reset done to try to remove the issue I have from 2nd to 3rd gear where you can feel a bit of a jerk. It's not aggressive but it's just not as seamless as rest of gear changes where you can't even feel it change gear. The reset worked instantly but this has...

    Hi, Total novice when it comes to cars & I'm hoping to increase my knowledge on here. Bought a 2011 730d 3/4 months ago on 100k. I generally drive it in normal (somtimes comfort) and there is occasionally a slight hesitation when accelerating, mainly in lower gears e.g. when slowing down at a...

    I am having issues with my 2009 E82 as when decelerating through any gear and any revs, there are three jolts with the first being significantly worse followed by two less noticeable jolts. I am wondering whether this could be down to slack in the propshaft? The car has 41000 miles. If anyone...

    Hi all, I've had an e46 320d for over a year now. It's had a few miles (157k) in it's age so bare that in mind. I took it for it's MOT last week and it failed on emissions. The garage said I did not have either of the decats (unbeknown to myself), yet I somehow passed last year without a...

    Ok, so for a week or so I have noticed a jolt when I brake coming through the steering wheel but it is noticeable to other people in the car too. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Also today I parked in a multi storey car park as I do every day for work, and as I pulled forwards into...

    Hi all, I've got an odd problem on the car. It pulls fine right up the gears, pulls off smoothly and there's no lag when you hoof it! However, as the car is slowing to crawl and idle there are a couple of jolts and a quiet thud from the back of the car. I've had it looked at by my local indi...

    Just recently purchased a 04 plate 330d sport (85K). I've noticed that I get a jolt in the steering wheel when I hit a speed bump or if i'm on a bumpy road/potholes. I thought it may have been to do with worn wishbone bushes so have had them replaced last week with the powerflex ones, although...

    hi all, had my pre-facelift 330ci Auto sport for around two months now, and when the brakes are applied I can feel a jolt(s): like on, off, on, off, on, off. Passangers cannot feel the car jolting, but I can feel the jolt on the brake pedal (through the pedal). The seller said this was becasue...

    I had the misfortune to be stuck in traffic for about 6 hours yesterday between Manchester and Brighton. Whilst coasting along at 10mph I found that if I hadn't used the brakes for a short while, when I gently applied the brakes they would jolt on, and the steering wheel would pull slightly...
