    Hi everyone Just thought I'd share my experience on this: Over a period of several days, the car started to lose torque and power in the lower revs. I had to change down to 2nd gear to get up a hill near my house. It used to have no problem going up in 3rd. Above 3500rpm it seemed fine...

    E63 and E64 N62 Vacuum Pump - Fixing Oil Leaks As a general rule I’m not too worried by a small oil-leak, after owning seven M62 V8’s you get used to the slight weeps around the valve covers. The problem with the leak from the vacuum pump on my 650i is that the oil blows back onto the exhaust...

    Hi all, So when I purchased the car I was told it had the EGR done, DPF gutted and mapped. I then done a video flooring it to 60MPH and when I compared to a stock 330D youtube video it was no different which got me wondering if anything has been done to it. So first off, the EGR, if im not...

    My E61 530D has developed a tapping noise from the top end of the engine, and I am trying to work out what is causing it. It taps at half engine speed, so camshaft speed, it sounds similar to a slack tappet. I have heard that various things might be the cause, including a worn tappet, faulty...

    Last October the vacuum control valve for the egr packed up on my 2007 330d and it was replaced by the garage under warranty. Last week the unit failed again so they replaced that one and then today my engine management light came on and it looks like it's the same fault again! Is there anything...

    Dearest friends, I'm hoping you can help. I feel obliged to say that I have already spent the entirety of yesterday seeking help both through the search tool on this forum, Google and the E46 Owners Club on Facebook. I've had this 316i for just over a year and I got absolutely mugged off by...

    Hi, I have noticed a slight amount of oil around the vacuum hose pictured below. Is this normal / anything to be concerned over? Only place I can imagine it is leaking from is where it goes onto the turbo? Is it just a case of needing a jubilee clip to make it seal a bit better? Thanks, Andy

    Hi, can anyone help. My wife's 2002 320d Compact has swallowed its swirl flaps, things I have been meaning to replace for years, and written off the engine. I have replaced the engine with a second-hand one from the local recycler and all's gone well except for the turbo. The original turbo was...

    I have recently replaced the Vacuum pump gaskets and CCV valve shortly after but now my Vacuum pump is leaking oil only 6 months after replacement. Im losing around 1 liter of oil for every 500 miles at best. Just wondering if there are any tips on how to cure this. I used sump sealant around...

    I've been losing brake boost at low RPMs and decided to strip the vacuum system to determine the problem. I think I've determined that the vacuum pump is the culprit. I've previously replaced the seals to prevent it leaking oil all over the exhaust manifold, so I took it apart to inspect the...
