Alright so I've had my 2001 BMW 330i over a year now currently at 155k My car was fine 2 days ago and recently my car has had a very rough idle and misfire on all 6 cylinders.

    I have a 2001 325i sedan that I am absolutely in love with it, but the problem is that the overall performance all of a sudden sucks. My check engine light came on so I took it and got the codes read. Well the guy at autozone helped me out by finding exactly what was causing the codes to be...

    So I've had a rough cold start idle since I bought my car back in January 2014. The car had 88,000 miles on it. It now has 96000 miles. I figure I inquire about this before there is any serious issue. My car has no check engine light, EML etc. When I start it up in the morning, it has a rumble...

    Hey guys I'm new to the forums here and in need of help with my 2001 325i. For a few months now the car has had a rough idle that gets worse and develops into a misfire if I let the car sit and idle for a bit. It is independent of ambient temperature and vehicle (coolant, oil etc) temperature...

    Hey everyone, Im a noob to this forum looking for a hand. Any feedback would be appreciated. My e46 M3 idles perfectly 99% of the time, and runs strong as hell, but every once in a while when Im driving I clutch in (all the way in, guys I know how to drive a 3 pedal) and the motor goes to...

    My 330i is approaching 240K miles very soon. Everything works fine except an annoying vibration at 550RPM idle when the car is fully warmed up. No misfires, just a constant vibration throughout the car. Putting the transmission in neutral will bump up the idle a bit to maybe 600RPM and the...

    Hello again, I've noticed that when the car is cold, it does not do this. When my 1999 328i has been warmed up and is in park, i can feel the engine surging. The tach is not moving at all and I have no warning lights. I can feel this and then if i put my phone on my leg and sit still i can see...

    Okay everyone I want to start off by saying this is my first post/thread here.. so be gentle. I'm not stupid, but I am rookie, so please excuse my ignorance. I've had my 01' 330Ci for about 4 years and ever since I can remember I've had a problem with my idle and SES light mainly during the...

    I will describe the noise as best as I can and see if anyone can figure out what it could be: e46 325CI conv. Its a ticking noise. Does not make noise when at idle or in park. Makes noise slowly when starting to move and then gets faster as car goes faster. Not a "tick" like rocker arms with no...

    :banghead:I replaced my CCV yesterday. Now my SES light is on and the car is acting strangely. The RPMs are steady at idle but drop as soon as I begin to press the accelerator. I have to rev the engine high just to get the clutch engaged. It has also stalled on me on a couple occasions...

    So about 4 months ago I replaced my thermostat due to idle overheating, and a few weeks ago I was driving and as I came to slow down I noticed movement of the needle went right into red. I don't think it's the expansion tank because I see no fluids leaking out of the vehicle, both fans seem to...

    Hi there I have an 03 320i that doesn't start or barely starts. This is what happens: In the morning the car does not start at all for the first few cranks. On the third or forth attempt the car will start to sputter and act like its about to start and then it will be "running" but barely. It...

    My car has developed a problem where on a cold start the engine will idle around 1100 RPM before slowly dropping to around 1000 and then after a few minutes to the normal idle. When the engine's warm it idles normally and I've scanned it but it's not giving any fault codes. :thumbdwn: Here's a...

    Hi all, first time poster here. Subject pretty much says it all. I own a 2002 (09/01) BMW 330i Sedan w/ Sport Pkg, stock, which of late is having some problems. When "behaving", idle hovers between 500-520rpm, which seems and feels a bit low (kinda rough). When acting up, idle fluctuates...

    Ok, I've tried my hardest to find info online and solve this problem myself, but I can't seem to get it. I hope you will be willing to read all of this and help me because I just CANNOT find the root cause. Just to put it into perspective, I'm a Mechanical Engineer working in the auto...
