    First post here, so please let me know if I missed anything important in this post that could help with diagnosing the issue. Ive noticed my 320d saloon will occasionally lose acceleration power, and at the same time, kicks out black smoke from the exhaust, sometimes a good amount of smoke...

    Hi guys, I'm new here. :hi: I have a nagging problem with the acceleration on my 2000 E46 320d (136hp). The problem being... there is almost no acceleration. In short, no acceleration before 2000 rpm, the car starts to go only from 2500rpm. No smoke whatsoever. 0-100 in 17s and at 170-180Km/h...

    I'll try to explain this situation as detailed as possible given the fact that there could be many causes; my "Service Engine Soon" light turned on and my car was showing a misfire in cylinders 1 and 5 as well as feeling shaky when idle. I changed all the spark plugs and coils and the car seemed...

    Hi all, I have a 2004 330Ci auto vert, and I've been looking for the answer to my problem, but every thread I find isn't quite the same as my problem, so I thought I'd ask it here When I'm driving down the highway at normal highway speeds around 2250 RPM, a lot of the time if I wish to...

    I just bought a 330xi with quite a few problems, I've fixed the CSB/flex disc, new rear shocks, also new brake discs and new pads all around, + a bunch of little things for inspection. When I put the car in gear and release the clutch I hear a low pitched clunk as the drivetrain engages. When...

    Ran out of room in the title. I assure you I can spell. Anyway, I've been looking up other peoples 0-60 in car videos for the helluvit and noticed I have to change to 3rd before I hit 60, or 100 as I'm in Canada. Here is my vehicle information: http://www.bmwarchive.org/vin/km05621.pdf Just...

    Hey all, This would be my first post on these forums, happy to be joining the community. I drive an '04 325 with 100,xxx miles on it. After installing a cold air intake, suddenly my car has this terrible whistling noise on acceleration. The pitch of the noise varies with my throttle, and is...

    Hi all - My 300i "rescue" is really starting to run well, but when accelerating, I occasionally get a kind of jittery feel. Kind of imagine the feeling you get when you are being ratcheted up to the top of a roller coaster, but during acceleration and MUCH more subtle than an actual roller...

    my car is having acceleration hesitation at low rpm when the accelerator is pressed down hard. On soft acceleration the car pulls away fine. I just recently detected a smell of fume (don't know what it is though) when im standing approx. 1m from the side of the car. I'm assuming that has...

    My 2001 330ci makes a rattling/chattering noise while under medium/heavy acceleration. I have done all sorts of research and have read threads of similar cases caused from: broken exhaust clamp, heat shield, flex disc, vanos, tensioner, etc. but I'm still unsure. It is difficult for me to...

    My 323i has 132k on it, everything is going wrong. Im about to put it into the shop for a big overhaul of the coolant system and replace a first bank cat, and now I've got a new noise: It's pouring out here in east Hampton and driving home today in the rain caused my car to moan and rumble...

But when the light comes on the car looses acceleration and when i try to turn the car on, it doesnt start on the first tried, it will start on the 2nd try. Any ideas what this could be.... The car runs...

    I have a 2001 325 CiC that has been running great since I purchased it 2 years ago. The only problem was an oil leak, which I had fixed and no leaks since. Currently have 88K miles on it. Recently the car seems to be misfiring, but not consistently. I bought an ODBII Scanner and found out that...
