    Hey guys, I was recently driving my 2004 325xi and everything randomly turned off. All of a sudden the check engine light, oil light, and everything in between came on. However, I was lucky enough to be in a parking lot so I put my car back into park, turned it off, and waited one minute before...

    Bought my first car 2 Weeks ago. It is a 318Ci with N42 engine. The problems started the first day. My current problem is that the car feels like it has 30 HP less then it should. It builds RPM, doesn't stutter, and has great gas response, but just doesn't go. It is my first N42 and I don't know...

    Hey Fanatics! After a long time I decided to fix my leaky doors on my sedan. I installed brand new Vapor Barriers on my front two doors, and cleaned the door drains. According to my friend who is a Technician at the local stealership; the design of the door on the E46 allows for water to enter...

    Hi everyone, I'll try to make this as concise as possible. Yesterday I was changing my oil (2005 325ci), and the oil plug broke. I did not realize it was broken until I went to but it back in. I didn't think much of it, and bought a new plug and put it in. Today I noticed some leaking and...

    Hello, I have searched for a similar situation but couldn't seem to find any posts on it. It seems like it would have happened to someone else. While diagnosing my coolant leak, I removed the air box. I'm doing so, I accidentally broke the top off the MAF. To where you can grab the plastic...

But now since I replace it the new o2 sensor is throwing miss fire codes for 1 and 3 and 2 fuel trim malfunctions any help would be...

    Hey Fanatics, I ordered a door lock repair kit and had trouble with the spring. I put the lock back in (broken) just so it could look like the car was locked to thieves. Well little did I know that if someone put a key in, the lock could come out. My sister did exactly that and I have all the...

    Hi, so I bought my 2003 330xi a week ago and the sunroof does not work. It will go up and down in the back but not forward and when I try there's a lot of loud repeated clicking. The drivers side of the sunroof appears to be higher than the passengers side leading me to believe that the...

    When I roll my driver side front window up and down it makes a horrible popping sound and moves around. When the window is halfway down it is very loose, I can move it around with my hand and I can't do that on any of my other windows. It moves like it is out of alignment with a guidance track...
