    Hello all, I ran into a huge problem today and can not drive my only car anymore. I started the car today and actually felt and heard the misfiring once I put the car into drive. The car then shut off after moving a bit and I was able to start it up and move it back, still misfiring. Scan and I...

    I recently bought an e46 320i and decided to do an valve cover gaskey replacement. (oil was starting to leak out on the manifold). But when i got to removing the coils i realised that i had 4 different kinds of coils on the same engine. Does this matter if the engine runs completely normal?

    Hi, my dad has an e46 325xi and he had ignition coil problems, so he decided to change the spark plugs and coils, all from Bosch, and today he had the same problem with shaking car and lack of power...again a ignition coil, what could be causing this? Thank you

    Getting ready to install new plugs in my '05 325Ci. Should I be thinking about coil packs too? I bought the car 2 years ago this week, and it's been running smooth as silk until about a month ago, when I started sensing that there just might be a touch of a miss when I start it from cold. No...

    Fellow E46 enthusiasts I have a 2004 320i MSport with ~138k on the dial. It was running like a dream until a few months back when one morning it began shuddering and I could smell burning plastic through the vents... Quick call to my mechanic had me soon having the ECU rebuilt (which...

    I have a 2002 325xi. Check Engine light came on Saturday and car started running roughly. Last time it happened, I took it into an indie shop and they replaced ignition coils 1 & 3. Decided to try fixing it myself - so I took it to AutoZone, and they checked the check engine light, to find...

    Hello E46 Fanatics, My 2002 E46 is having an issue that I can't seem fix. After my car is warmed up after about 15 minutes or so, it starts to run rough with some minor shaking. My service engine light switches on also. At first, I figured that my spark plugs needed replaced. Maybe one was...

    I went to start the car today and straight away I noticed she was only firing on 3 cylinders. This problem happened last week also and it was an ignition coil. As it is fairly simply and far cheaper to replace myself my question is will the check engine light on the dash go off itself after I...

    2000 328i 180,XXX 2 different topic in one thread. Yes I know, LOL. I just want to put it all in one so i don't have to make thread for each one. Question for Ignition Coils. I know this have been asked lots of times, but couldn't find any answers I was looking for. I'm looking into changing...

    I'm trying to replace my spark plug connector on cylinder 5. Had misfire on that cylinder. Replaced spark plug and ignition coil and seemed to solve it for a couple days, but it came back once or twice. So, I'm now replacing the boot and need to know if I push it onto the coil until it clicks...

    Bought 12-13-1-748-018 from Tischer for around $69...I thought it was a set of 6... Turns out it just one piece.... The ignition coils are that damn expensive? :banghead:

    I have a friend with a 1993 325i and his ignition (?) just went out. When you put the key in to start it and turn it there is no resistance and the key can be freely and easily turned with no resistance. Any ideas on a fix? and cost? i know its not relevant but i would appreciate any input.
