    So my engine is making a slight rattling sound from the front of the engine which is slowly getting worse. I believe it could be a bearing on one of my pulleys or tensioners. Has anyone else had this issue before? Or know if it could be something else? And if so is there a kit I can get to just...

    https://streamable.com/6rixvg Hi all Got a nice noise this morning... I presume a fan belt but I have never had a bad one myself so just curious for your thoughts. It speeds up when I accelerate so presumably a belt/ pulley issue. Could you let me know what you think? Also if it is a belt...

    Hey everyone, I had my serpentine belt snap after a pulley totally disintegrated, and now I have a leak down the expansion tank on the right side, looking at the car from the front. Was this just run off from my overheating, or is it likely there is an issue with the tank itself. It was replaced...

    I have a 2011 328i xDrive with 125,000 miles. Last week a squealing began when the engine was hot and at idle. The squeal subsides with increased RPMs and disappears around 2500 RPMs. Also the engine seems to idle a bit lower and rougher than previously. It's idling about 500-600 RPMs vs. the...

    I need to replace the belt tensioner and idler pulley on my automatic e46. Bavauto sells a serpentine belt overhaul kit that contains both belts and tensioners, as well as the idler pulley for $150. Since it'll be a slight PITA to access the belts and pulleys, I'd like to replace all the parts...

    I was driving today in about 80 degrees in my 2004 BMW M3 with 87,000mi on it, I was in traffic and I noticed the steering was really heavy, I was at a red light so I turned off the car and turned it back on. I then noticed the red battery symbol was on and I called my BMW mechanic immediately...

    I fitted a new alternator to my 52 plate e46 the weekend, after a day or so since then it's has been running rough so I dug around today looking for split hoses and found something much worse. It seems when I fitted the airbox back on I didn't fit it properly and the belt has been rubbing...

    Hey guys, I currently have a c38-71, a FMIC, and a 80mm pulley with black injectors that came with my gen2 AA kit. Stock crank pulley as well. So I have found from searching around that a: 80mm pulley = 5.5 psi (stock) 75mm pulley = 7.5 psi 70mm pulley = 9.5+ psi So my question is how much...

    Hey everyone, Unfortunately my car started making a clicking noise today. It seems to be coming from the engine just in front of the driver's seat. The nose varies in speed with the throttle (while driving or while revving at a standstill). My best guess is that a pulley is causing this, as the...

    I've seen no problems with the car, but then last night I pulled into the driveway, turned it off for 60 seconds, turned it back on, and snap goes my serpentine belt. I don't know how old it was but it didn't look really worn out enough to break. I'm guessing a pulley locked up, but all of them...

    Recently my car started making a squealing noise and I narrowed it to the front of the car where my belts are. pouring a little bit of water made the noise go very quiet but still noticeable. I removed my serpentine belt and played around with the pulleys to make sure they were smooth and...

    Hey guys! So I was driving today and my battery light came on. I came to a complete stop behind a car, and went to turn and my power steering was gone. I was able to park and popped the hood. I noticed that the belt was either broken or came off. Is it either a broken pulley? Loose pulley? If...

    I got deep into some issue's with my 00 323i and started tackling them. Main issue was oil dripping so I changed out oil filter gasket. Since I" was going to have them apart I decided to order belts and pulleys as well. Good thing too as my belt was split in half mainly because half of the...

    Been a while since I've posted, been busy and all, but hope to get back into the swing of things ;) Anyway last October I was planning on a 450 mile trip to see the folks in Glasgow. A week or so before my departure I was doing some general checks under the bonnet, and I spotted something...

    First of all, I must thank those of you who have helped me as I have repaired my new wife's BMW (the wife is new, not the car ;). You have saved me LOADS of money that I don't have! I have come to a dead-end (two actually) that I have not been able to find a knock-dead answer for, though I...

    Ok, so I apologize ifthishasbeenaddressed a thousand times.ButI think it is slightly a different problem. So I just swapped out my voltage regulator and since then when I'm driving down the road and push in the clutch, the RPM's will drop down to nearly 0 bounce up to just above 500,and then...
