    Hi guys, i've been experiencing power loss for the last 2 months and my 320i stalled twice in the last week. I scanned the codes and got P0344, P0369 and a pending P0014. I ordered both the intake and exhaust camshaft position sensors, however I could only get the oem exhaust sensor and had to...

    Hi guys, I have a 2001 e46 325ci with an m52tub28 engine (don't ask, old owner had if fitted as it was lower mileage). To add some context I've been overseas for the last 14 months and while away I got my brother to start it and warm it for me every so often. He doesn't have a licence so never...

    Hi Everyone, My 2000 M52TU 323i started running extremely rough and stalling a few days ago. It would only stay running if I gave it a lot of gas. If I push in the clutch for example without giving it extra gas the engine will immediately die. I scanned the codes and I got: P1523 - 'A'...

    Hello, guys! A month ago I had both camshaft sensors fail and my vanos unit developed a rattling. Few days ago I repaired the unit using beisan rattle/seals kit and changed both my sensors with second hand oem ones. Everything seems ok except if I stop the car and start it right away it picks up...

    Hi all, I am getting the P1531 code on my 2001 330XI. According to the internet this is a problem with the intake camshaft position sensor, is this correct? I cleaned it today, but if it comes back, what's the next move? Buy a new one? Or could this have other origins? Cheers, fanatic

    Read this code on my 2002 325i. Wondering where to start. Symptoms: SES light comes on after hard accelerations, then goes away after a day or two. Stalls like 1 or 2 times a month. Should I straight up replace the sensor? Or should I do some diagnosing first? I'm not sure where to start. I...

    So I just got done changing the intake camshaft sensor and coolant temp sensor on the M, and now I have a very rough idle, with it going as high as 2k, and all the way down to 500 rpm. It had also died a few times when I push the clutch in. It fits down to about 200 and then cuts off. I had the...

    Hello, Let me start with the obligatory "Sorry if I did not do good enough research, but I tried." I can't find anyone who has experienced this (or maybe I just don't know exactly what to search for). In short, a VANOS/Camshaft sensor issue seemed to come and then vanish in 3 days time...

    Hello, folks! Newbie here to the e46 forum, but anyway about a week ago I was replacing the jet sucking pump on my 2002 330Ci because of a vacuum leak I determined on a smoke test. I got the dreaded lean codes P0171 P0174 (Plus the thing broke on a very small tug.) Anywho, while I was taking...

    Today I successfully replaced the oil separator and attached hoses in my 2003 325i. I'd read so many how-to's and watched quite a few videos, that it really made the process a lot easier. This and other forums as well as users posting to YouTube really made this attainable. The engine now is...

    So, I have a 2000 BMW 323ci during the weekend I was driving back home when my car started to sputtering. It lost power and the engine died on me, ever since then my engine turns but it doesn't start unless I spray carb cleaner into the mass airflow sensor. I checked for an air leakage and fuel...
