    Hello everyone! I am trying to convert my 316i engine to a 318i, and I have stumbled into a little problem. Where should the disa connector plug be located? I simply can't find it.

    Hi guys, I have a 98 318i m43, what can this sound be? Some say lifters or maybe chain tensioner, any advise? https://youtu.be/1DsMYVOMDTc Thanks for any help

    Hi guys. I replaced my MAF sensor today. The reasons: it was showing fault 120 in INPA, poor RPM at idle, my cruise control was switching itself off, all there may be because of bad MAF. So I purchased a second hand one and connected it to the car (BMW E46 318i M43 2000). Is there some coding...

    Hi all, I have E46 318i M43 (2000) with a faulty MAF sensor. I purchased a second hand one - BOSCH ending 262062, from a 320d car, only the sensor that I put inside my plastic housing. The issues of my MAF were low RPM at idle (~500), the cruise control did not work, slow acceleration compared...

    Hi all, I drive an E46, 318i, M43. It has the fault code P0101 since I bought it (in May...). Today I got the cruise control and a multifunction steering wheel fit to the car. It works great, very nice feature. However, I used it for about a minute from the garage I got it fitted. Then the...

    Apologies for asking a question that I know has been brought up many times. I couldn't find anything that I felt confidently answered my question/car hardware. I have a 318i touring, early 2000, m43 engine. My car does not have a BMW installed audio amplifier. Here is what I have in terms of...

    Hey guys. So I bought a 2000 BMW 318ci with the M43B19 (M43TU) engine. It's the 1.9 single cam engine. I got the car really really cheap and I was going to part it out but it really is too nice. I bought new gaskets, oil, plugs and all that and did a head gasket job. The car now runs. All dash...

    Hello guys. To keep things short. Bought a project car for cheap. I was either going to part it out or fix it. The car had a blown head gasket so I took the engine apart. I can now see a very mysterious problem. One of the oil passages that go to the top of the head has been either welded in or...

    Hi, I've posted this on another site but just wanted a bit more advice if possible. I've got an 2000 318i M43 sedan with 120k km on the clock, and have been having starting/running problems for a while. The symptoms are: Hard starting from cold, takes 5 seconds while pumping the gas pedal to...

    Hi All, I am new to the forums, so I apologise if this is a well known thing. :hi: All started with coolant leaks - they have been frequent for about 6 months. Everything was changed (radiator, about 4 different pipes), but there is still leak to the side of cylinder head where a pipe is...

    2001 E46 318i ... M43B19 I've had my 318i for almost a month now. Imported it from Japan. It drove great for about 3 weeks then threw a check engine light. Around this time, the car started developing the "rough idle" problem (at traffic lights, coming to a stop, during really slow...
  15. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hey everyone, I've done a search on here and b-fest and the results are quite ambiguous to me. So I just want a little clarification - I'm in Melbourne Aus, and BMW quoted me $340 for the ATF (I need to change it as it hasn't been done since the car was bought 200000 kms ago.) the sticker is...
