    First post here, so please let me know if I missed anything important in this post that could help with diagnosing the issue. Ive noticed my 320d saloon will occasionally lose acceleration power, and at the same time, kicks out black smoke from the exhaust, sometimes a good amount of smoke...

    I haven't found any discussions about my current issue... I might've not looked hard enough but i want to talk about the issue i'm having with my current 04 325i M54 engine. There's this odd rattling/buzzing sound when i accelerate above 2000rpms until 4000rpms and then it stops, but as i'm...

    So This problem happened some time ago. I was accellerating hard on the highway. Maybe going 160 or something. Then the car started sputtering, like it did not get any fuel and the traction control light came on, the car felt really slow and the idle was a bit rough. I stopped and scanned the...

    So I recently bought a 00' 320ci with 145k miles on it and it has this problem when it's cold it usually starts but it has a rough idle and has no power for the first few minutes. And sometimes if I give it some gas while it's running like this I can hear a loud pop... I've also noticed if I...

    Hello, Let me start with the obligatory "Sorry if I did not do good enough research, but I tried." I can't find anyone who has experienced this (or maybe I just don't know exactly what to search for). In short, a VANOS/Camshaft sensor issue seemed to come and then vanish in 3 days time...

    I feel like :facepalm: I have a 2001 320D with a manual transmission. When I accelerate slowly (on flat or an up hill grade), my car often has a moment around 1800-2000 rpm where the power disappears. The feeling is like the clutch was pushed in for a split second, like a hiccup. The rpms do...

    I have an 03 325xi manual with 125k miles. Used to run pretty nice. A couple weeks ago while driving up close to the top of a couple mile hill in 5th gear, the car seemed to lose power and jerk for a second, sending the rpm way up to 5000, down to 0, and back up to normal 2500 in a matter of...

    I have an 02 325it, with 145k miles. Have owned since 04. In the last several months it has been exhibiting a problem I have not been able to diagnose. When warm, if I am stopped in traffic for more than a couple of minutes, the rpm drops to around 500, and the idle becomes erratic and very...

    Hi! In the last 4 months I'm having a big trouble with a Inlet Camshaft Position Sensor in my 328i 99. I'm having the classic symptoms of a bad cam sensor: - Loss of power, stalling, difficult to start the engine. All of this symptoms comes up only with hot engine and it gets worse in hot...

    My 330xi has recently started having a lower than normal idle until it warms up and then runs fine. Today the idle went very low after it warmed up and then I experienced a loss of power and irregular shifting of the transmission. After I stopped for lunch the problem cleared. What would...

    Hello all. I was literally a stoplight away from work when this happened. I was behind a Kia Soul and I was just looking at the rear end of it when the light went green. Realizing I was in neutral I quickly shifted into 1st but it felt weird (kind of like the reverse gear) so I pulled out and...

    Starting this past Friday, my 2001 330i starting giving me issues. While driving, the engine would all of a sudden take a dump. RPMs would drop down, and the pedal would be unresponsive. I would have to completely let off the pedal, then slowing press the pedal to regain control and drive...

    Ok so this problem has been going on for about two or three weeks. I posted about it a while back but then that problem went away and the car felt great, then all of a sudden while driving one day it just felt like the motor slowed down but didnt show it in the rpms??? The steering even felt...

    Hi, I'm a proud new owner of an E46 M3. As I'm located in a relatively small city (Ottawa, Ontario Canada), its difficult to find a garage competent and qualified enough to trust with my car (aside from the stealership). I seem to have a problem with my engine and I'm looking for your valued...
