    I'll keep it brief for everyone's benefit. Car: 2005 E46 ZHP Symptoms Had an extremely persistent random rough idle about at all RPMs, cold or warm. Changed MAF and spark plugs and it did help a bit. Not sure if coincidence. Now I get an occasional misfire (only in cylinder 3, normally after...

    Hello, yesterday I did a much needed service. I changed the oil from 5w30 to Mobile 1 5w40, oil filter, cabin air filter, spark plugs and air filter. After the change a strange ticking noise started coming from the engine. I think it is coming from lifters but I am not sure. Also my old spark...

    This morning, I sent my brother to go grab spark plugs for our 2004 325xi. We swapped them following a tutorial step by step (I've also done the same procedure on another E46 with no problems) Long story short turns out we didn't have the correct plugs. What made me realize this was the fact...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2000 328i about to replace some vanos seals at 190k miles. I was looking at the kit from Bav Auto that comes with a new valve cover gasket and all the seals. Also while Im there i will be replacing spark plugs with NGK OEMs and coil packs. Has anyone ever used Bremi...

    I was going to change my plugs and I know it's recommended to replace the spark plug boot at the same time BUT I can't find the boots anywhere online that fit my car. When I find boots on FCP Euro it says they only fit up to 02 325i's. And that's the exact same Bremi boot on autohausaz where...

    Hey all, Recently I've been having some rough cold starts. 2005 325i 192,000 miles. I was due for new spark plugs and decided to also clean the idle control valve. To anyone having any cold start issues, I cannot recommend cleaning your ICV. There are plenty of DIY's on here and it's a very...

    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...

    Encountered a problem today while changing the spark plugs on my 04' 330CI ZHP. All the other spark plugs came out fine except for cylinder #3 which is stuck. It takes a lot of force to barely get 1/4th a rotation in the right direction. I sprayed some WD-40 down there and tried again, which...

    Ok here we go. On monday I bought this car with 130k miles on it. She drove like a beast! There was no slip, lag, or hesitation in performance. It didn't have any serious problems at first.There was an oil leak coming from the valve cover gasket and it was making a squealing noise, in which it...

    Hi guys, I just finished uploading a video of my spark plug replacement process. While I filmed it on my E39, it's virtually the same process on the E46. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9pdVTRxcPU I used OE plugs, PN: 12120037607

    A few days ago I decided to do my first DIY on my 2001 325i, by changing the spark plugs. Before the switch to new spark plugs (NGK Laser Platinum Spark Plug BKR6EQUP), the car trembled at idle and when driving beyond 60mph. The car had a lot of problems when I bought it a couple month ago, like...

    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...

    If you don't want to waste your time with the long story, skip the first two paragraphs I imagine this will come as a shocker to most of you, so prepare yourself... my cooling system failed! I was driving along, and the temp gauge started to climb higher than it should. I pulled off to the side...

    Hi. I tried to search for something pertaining to my issue. It's really ideas for solving my particular issue. If I missed a thread that addresses this, go ahead and post it. First, I will say this is final confirmation that I need to do as much on my car myself, because I cannot trust shops...

    I have a 2003 330ci and recently have been noticing it is idling really rough and has stalled a couple of times as well. I have had the codes read and its coming up as misfires mostly, and also a MAF sensor fail. I recently installed a cold air intake and forgot to reconnect the MAF so I am...
