    Hi everyone. Car is a 2003 330d. I'm new here, but was wondering if I could get some help with identifying what the issue might be with the below problem. There's a grinding noise that happens when I engage the clutch, however the car does shift properly and there is no loss of power or delay in...

    So I’ve recently acquired a 330d tourer, it’s the 184bhp model and it’s a non runner, cranks over but no start, will kick into life with some easy start but won’t run, suspected fuelling issue, so I’ll get it diagnosed this week and go from there, if anyone has any suggestions that’ll be great...

    So bought the car (330d) in a non start condition, cranks but won’t fire, slow to crank so replaced the starter motor and whilst I had access did the crank sensor and changed the cam sensor at the same time, possible fueling issue so changed the fuel pressure reg as a precaution as the pressure...

    Hi everyone! Lately my E46 has been low on power. Instead of 180hp, it feels like 60. Around 60 km/h it starts to jiggle and 100 km/h feels like the limit. Recently my transmission went into limp mode (Exclamation cog next to D symbol), but I instantly changed the battery and that fixed it...

    Hi, So my E46 (year 2004 330d) decided that the the one thing missing in my life is an electrical f*ckery. I’ll try to explain as good as i can, and maybe someone has had this problem. Pretty much my airbag light came on, and since then it shows different faults, everything works fine if the...

    I'm affraid I already know the answer, but I still want to know other's oppinon. I'm considering if it is a good idea to buy a bmw with 330d (either M57TUD30 or M57TU2D30) as a daily commuter to work. The distance in one direction is around 9km (5,5mi.) or 20 minutes. Especialy in winter. Will...

    Hi, I am planning to strip down a 330d from England and send out all the parts in a crate to Ontario where I plan to convert my 02 330i to a 330d. I spent a summer in the UK driving a 330d and this is the car that made me fall in love with the e46. I love my car but I've always wanted the diesel...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and this is my car. It is a 2004 E46 330d with auto transmission. I've had it for the past 3 years and it has a total of 260000km. Everything is great it so far, a lot of parts were changed and a lot of maintenance done but I do enjoy working on it. Here are a few...

    Hi everyone, I have a very specific transmission slipping problem that has been bothering for a while. The place where I park my car is a little higher than the road and sometimes when I climb the "hill" the transmission starts slipping. To be more specific, I engage drive, start climbing...

    Hey, apologies if I may break a rule or two since this is my first post on here, on any forum really, so feel free to move the thread if faulty placed. I'm doing my best tho. Anyways, I've had a nice piece of BMW diesel (330Dt -01, 184hp) for the last half a year or so and I'm pleased with it...

    To summarise I'm having problems with the automatic transmission in my 2000 reg E46 330D with 150,000 miles on the clock. I've had it for a couple of months and apart from a slight thump when selecting 4th gear the transmission has been trouble free until ... A few weeks ago on a particularly...

    OK so this has been an intermittent issue on my car for a good while (over a year) but only happens rarely. I recently had the fuel pump replaced (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1072036&highlight=) and thought this issue may have been linked to that, so was surprised that after...

    So I've decided to start a build thread on here as I've been feeling a little homeless since switching from VAG to BMW, and I think it's partly the reason why i've lost momentum with doing anything to the car! Hopefully i'll be able to learn a lot about the car from being on here, and be able to...

    Hi, This is my first post - please let me know if its in the wrong place and I'll move, I could find nothing after doing a few searches... so here goes. Problem cause: my external ambient temperature sensor is missing, that's to say it has, prior to me owning the car, been completely ripped...
