    Hello everyone! Yesterday I replaced both inner tie rods and rack boots. After the replace I turned my steering wheel to the max. left and max right and saw ATF fluid pouring undernearth the car. I found the leakage being due to overflow of the reservoir and when looked at the tie rod boots...

    Hey, I’m getting 04 IHKA Fresh Air / recirculated-air flap motor right code and my cold AC air gets mixed up with outside air when I go faster. Is this flap motor the one that’s just beside the blower resistor? On realoem I can see 5 different actuators, can someone describe where they are? Thanks

    I have an '03 330i, and I've bled the cooling system a few times now. Either I'm an idiot, or there's a leak somewhere in the system. I want to rule out any leaks, because I don't see any coolant on the ground and the coolant light doesn't come on. The cooling system is the only trouble I've...

    Hey e46 fanatic, I posted the same problem a while back but due to moves and life changes never actual got to posting any updates: back story, while back my '00 BMW 323ci started running lean. Rough startups, intake backfire, boggy acceleration, codes P1188 and P1189 (with a few...

    So I'm sorry for starting a new thread but I couldn't find the answers I'm looking for. My CEL came on and the typical code involved w/ secondary air problems was presented. The pump does not run when I start the vehicle. Here's what I know: The secondary air pump, when supplied with voltage...

    I purchased a 2002 325i 5-speed with 120,000 miles in May. Everything on it worked just fine. But it is a 15-year-old BMW, so I have replaced nearly every part that could go bad in the foreseeable future (coolant system, gaskets... *see below for full list). I have had trouble bleeding the...

    Hey all, New to the forum here. I recently took ownership of my brother's hand-me-down, a 1999 BMW 323i (E46). While I was changing out the expansion tank, I noticed a pretty significant hole in a hose which is adjacent to the belt running between the alternator and power steering pump. The...

    Hi everyone, So I've been tracking down a vacuum leak on my 2001 330i for a while now, and I just found a split in the vacuum line between the Secondary Air check valve and the vacuum control switch (3/4 in the attached diagram). Ideally, I'd like to replace all the little lines back there...

    Hello fellow fanatics! Just now changing my secondary air pump hose and I'm checking to see if it's working (ie checking to see if the valve needs replacement as well). I connected the new hose to the valve part and blew through it while the car was running but I wasn't able to push any air...

    Hey everyone, the title of this post is pretty self explanatory. My air conditioner only gets cold on the drivers side. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks a lot!:bow:

    Hi there guys! I am new on the forum, but I have been reading for a long while, especially since I am having some problems with my ventillation system. First of all I noticed that the ventillation system does not blow any air on the windscreen. At all... first it was blowing air to the legs...

    I'm debating getting one, but I'd like a second, third, fourth, and any other opinion before I make the purchase.

    I have a 2001 318i M-Tech When the climate control temp is at its lowest (16 degrees celcius), I get warm air coming out, when I turn on 'Auto' the air turns cooler, as cool as I would expect it to be normally. Then when I turn on the AirCon it gets even colder as you would expect. The trouble...

    I need a new air filter, but I don't like the stock one. I like the idea of a k & n filter that I can clean an reuse. I searched a few forums and I didn't find much on k & n filters. If anyone is using k & n filters, what do you think of them? Is there a better aftermarket filter that I can...
