    Hello boosted E46 crew, I am installing an Infinitas supercharger (ASA) on my 330i E46. It taps into the car's stock oil system to lubricate the supercharger unlike other supercharger setups. The return set up requires you to cut the dip stick tube in half and insert a fitting for the drain...

    Recently decided to change the CCV system on my E46 330i since I live in a cold climate and it seemed lika a fun project. It has turned into a not so fun project, since the car no longer starts after the intake was off, CCV changed and everything put back together. When we were done, I sat down...

    I'll be posting updates on my journey of mastering DIY on my car. Preface: 2001 BMW E46 330ci convertible in orient blue with base package of non sport everything. Purchased in 2018 from Jacksonville FL from a less than reputable dealer. Top was working though 😁. Pretty much everything else was...

    I am changing CCV and as I pulled intake manifold out I noticed oil on the gasket and around the engine block intake. All the hoses were new to begin with (from January) but there was oil in the return breather hose going from CVV to the upper part of manifold. The only hose I haven't touched...

    Hi all, I'm fairly new to e46 ownership (about 6 months). It's an 01 330ci manual. I've come to the conclusion that my CCV is totally clogged up due to the UK winter and all the short trips that I make. The symptoms are copious amounts of sludge (aka bmw mayonnaise) in my crank case and in...

    Friends, I rolled up my sleeves for a new CCV. CCV isn't too bad but it does make some noise. Actually, I was going to do this before, but there was no money. :) Anyway, I did the necessary research, but there is a place that stuck in my head and I wanted to ask. 3. hose 11617504535 how do you...

    My car has gradually gone from 1 qt/1000 miles to 1 qt 300 miles. I got so tired of this I finally got the CCV redone, and topped the oil off (to the top line). My car is now burning 1 qt/250 miles which is ridiculous. I know some people are fine with topping off oil every now and then, but I am...

    Ok so today I changed air manifold on my 1999 e46 323ci from stock to one from bmw 328i. I also did a ccv delete (i cut the dipstick hose and disconnected the hose that goes next to vanos and closed the circle on the rail on top of the manifold. Pic) I also changed the throttle body, DISA valve...

    Started my car today and it almost loped. It was way louder than usual and shaking like crazy. After a few seconds of it running, I saw it had an SES light. The codes are as follows: P1083 (Fuel Control Limit Mixture too Lean; Bank 1 Sensor 1) P1085 (Fuel Control Limit Mixture too Lean; Bank 2...

    Hi everyone, I recently purchased my first BMW a 1 family-owned 2002 330xi automatic with 160k on it. It served me well until I decided to replace the fan belts and camshaft position sensor. To do this I made a mistake, I broke the plastic crosshair on the MAF taking out the aribox. This might...

    I got a 2002 325i with the m54 -150k Miles About a week ago I started experiencing trouble only when cold starting my car. When I go to start the car after sitting overnight it starts up and runs, but while it's turning over the RPMs bog down and the car slightly shutters but then starts. Over...

    Hey, So I bought new ccv replacement kit with all the hoses and stuff. When I started to install all of it I found out that I am missing a hose connection that goes from the bottom of intake manifold to the top of the intake manifold. What can I do about it? Would be really nice if someone could...

    So I replaced my CCV system and in that process I had to remove the disa valve to get to where I needed to go. And when I look at the disa valve the flap inside had broken completely off so I decided to change that out too. I fixed my ccv and put the new disa in and thought it’d be back to...

    Hi guys, new member here! I recently bought an automatic 330xi from a friend 180k km, he changed the whole cooling system; the system was exploding because over-pressure, resulted to be a head gasket that previous owner didn't told but admitted she knew. He sold it to me for 1500€ and I...

    Hi Guys! Long time member here. Recently completed a full m56 Valve cover swap - including PCV delete. I'm now getting a large amount of positive pressure through the crankcase which is leading to oil leaks around the engine. When removing the Oil fill cap I get the sound of air pushing out...

    Hello Everyone, I have a complex problem that I would love help narrowing down. Thank you in advance to any contributors. I don't drive my e46 often and so this problem has been dragging on for some time. I love this car and want to keep enjoying it. Last January I brought the car in to the...

    I have a 2004 330i with 110,000 miles on it. In the year I've owned it, I've replaced nearly all gaskets, hose, seals, bolts, and nuts. All of this was to fix an oil weep at the rear main seal and hunting idle. Everything I do has no impact on the hunting idle. I start it up, it goes to 1K...

    :banghead:I've replaced the CCV on my '05 325Ci, but the connections that run from the upper end of the oil separator to the top of the intake manifold just don't want to snap on. They go in as far as the o-ring on the hose, but don't want to make the complete "click" connection. Used lots of...
