    Hey, so my pump just went out took it to BMW, and got charged 1200 just to look at it 😔. Guy told me it was 9 grand for them to do it, he said to take it to a speed shop and look at a manual conversion. So everywhere else they charge like 6 Grand on the east coast around NY. I would just get...

    Hello everyone, I got a broken down 320D Touring 136cv for a couple bucks a month ago with a HP pump issue (the famous EEPROM and configuration errorwith the burnt driver module). I got another HP pump from a running 320D and put it into mine. I checked the wedging because I received it werdly...
  3. Motorsports, Track
    I've googled and not found a good explanation for this so thought I would share my experience in hopes that others don't fall victim. I track an E46 325CI RHD. After doing a rear end bushes upgrade and plates (preventative but turns out I already had three bad cracks and did it just in time), I...

    Hi again! After swapping an M54 into my N42 2003 Touring with a blown engine, i've just managed to get it driving for the first time. At first, the power steering worked, but after ~5 minutes it suddenly seemed like it was completely gone. After shutting the car down and starting it again a...

    I have a windscreen washer pump (original) that is leaking. There is a split in the tube at the bottom of the pump that connects to the black rubber pipe to the washers. I have tried to repair the pump connector it but so far without luck. I have also purchased 2 new pumps but both do not pump...

    Hey guys I hope all is well. So I need your insight. I bought myself an e46 6 cylinder 2.0cc 2002 model convertible. It had a hard top on. I took it out to check what was wrong with the soft top and having read a lot of similar issues here I started checking wires. There was one at the top bent...

    Hello. I am new to e46 and to this forum. I recently bought and fitted a 712 rack to my car. The pulley was making weird noices for like 2 months and it finally let itself go today. My car has a weird setup from myself with CNC made wishbone, angle kit, camber plate and coilovers. The thing that...

    Hi, can anyone help. I've purchased a new fuel pump by Bosch. I checked part numbers on real oem using the vin and ensured the specific numbers matched yet the new pump is significantly smaller as you can see in the first picture. The car is a 2002 330 ci. My question isn't so much what do I do...

    Hi! I really need some help. I've got a 2005MY 320D, which, about a month ago wouldn't start. I towed it to my local BMW workshop to have the problem identified, and after a while they told me that the pre-supply fuel pump was faulty and needed replacing. Being young and a student, naturally I...

    So I'm sorry for starting a new thread but I couldn't find the answers I'm looking for. My CEL came on and the typical code involved w/ secondary air problems was presented. The pump does not run when I start the vehicle. Here's what I know: The secondary air pump, when supplied with voltage...

    Hey everyone, Been noticing the past few days that my fuel gauge doesn't actually show that I am using any fuel, even though I am driving in excess of 120km per day. It initially settled at just above 1/2 a tank, I filled up the tank completely and now it shows full all the time, even after...

    Just bought an 01 325Ci Vert. Car was sold without top working. Top looked good so I figured its electrical. Turns out my Hydraulic Pump isn't even hooked up to power.:confused: The harness is not even there. Any Idea where I could get one or Make one? This is what I need:
  13. E46 General
    So I'm guessing my fuel pump is saying goodbye as I'm having trouble turning the car on. I searched the forums and siemens/VDO pumps were recommended, but has anyone tried AEM? I'm currently looking at this one...

    Situation - On Friday the steering on the 2003 325i worked great. On Saturday it didn't. I've searched here and elsewhere online... The symptoms indicate to me a power steering pump failure. Alternator, water pump, a/c all work fine. Power steering fluid reservoir is full. Friday afternoon I...

    My car will start normally and idle fine but, when I go into gear and try to move, the car has no power and, if I only lightly feather the gas pedal, it stalls. At first, I thought it was my MAF, which I replaced with a new one about 2 years ago. Why did I think it was the MAF? Well, I...

    I own a manual 2003 330i which I just recently purchased (108k miles). So far I've had little to no mechanical issues with the car until today. When I got into my parked car (it had been sitting for about 3 hours), I heard a little whine as I turned the wheel in first gear. I'm not a mechanic by...

    Hello fellow fanatics! Just now changing my secondary air pump hose and I'm checking to see if it's working (ie checking to see if the valve needs replacement as well). I connected the new hose to the valve part and blew through it while the car was running but I wasn't able to push any air...

    Hey guys! Just looking for a replacement secondary air pump hose since my stock one has a hole in it. I want one like this...

    Hi All, This weirdness started after I swerved to avoid a pothole (going 45mph). The power steering is fine, mostly, unless I'm making a sharp turn (only tested at 2-5mph). It kind of lags after I turn the steering wheel 120 degrees either way (Update! This has changed to 60 degrees), like as...

    Ok I'm getting a random stall where I have to prime the fuel system with about. 3 key turns and it'll start back up. Sometimes more severe sometimes starts right back up. It has a new fuel pump and fuel filter. Could this be the fuel pressure regulator?
