    Hi fanatics, What is the correct amount of new fluid to put into the front and rear diff? While most DIYs just say to drain it out and fill it up again until it drains out of the fill plug, I saw some comments that said there is a specific amount that should be re-filled, and that filling it...

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2002 BMW 325i manual transmission car and I was wondering if the best power steering fluid for the car is: "ATF Dextron III" I've looked around the forums and just wanted to make sure this one is right for my car. Also: is it okay to just add this in with the...

    Hi guys, I've been thinking about changing the transmission oil simply because I feel like if I did it could slightly improve shifting. Currently when I shift it feels somewhat stiff and jerky especially from 1st to 2nd gear. I've read that most e46 manual transmissions feel the same but that...

    Hey guys! I've been on the forums looking for research on this, and there's many mixed opinions. I went from my loud, dusty OEM brakes to an off brand. I feel the person who helped me installed them, when messing compressing the cylinders for new pads, may have let some air into the system, and...

    Hi guys, I just finished uploading a video I put together that highlights a power steering fluid replacement, without having to drain it from the steering rack. I filmed it on my E39, but it's the same process on the E46. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d83uXhoUcVk

    Hi all. I posted previously thinking that my issue with my car going into trans limp mode was caused by an air leak (evidenced by codes p0171 and p0174). I yanked out the entire intake down to and including the lower boot, and I found no leak. Therefore, I'm assuming that the limp mode is...

    Recently one of my front calipers seized. Upon draining the brake system i discovered that the brake fluid seems to be contaminated as it has an obvious red tint (possibly transmission fluid). The brakes have not been serviced since two years ago. Is it possible that it would take two years...

    Hello! So a couple months back my car started making a noise like an angry whale every time I cut the wheel too hard. I figured it was a power steering leak; easy fix, right? Wrong!! I can't figure the darn thing out. I trimmed the lines leading to the reservoir and replaced the hose clamps...

    Hi everyone, I stopped by my grandmas today and she mentioned that there were spots on her drive way under where she parked the car. The spots are not black, but are a darker colour. I opened the hood to see if I could spot any oil, and to my surprise there was a grocery bag all chewed up and...
