    Hey all, my starter motor has been making a groan for a small while now from a cold start. It's something I've been able to live with for a bit. I just came back from a trip and the car won't start. The battery seems to be ok as all the usual lights and beeps appear when I turn the ignition, but...

    Hello, I decided to post here, because I have been to multiple repair shops and every single one of them refuses to look deeper into this issue that I have. I figured maybe somebody else had the exact same problem and had it fixed somehow. The thing is I have a 2002 E46 330d 135kw and it has a...

    So I disconnected the battery , took the stock steering wheel off (which includes the airbag) and installed my new one, (I have not bypassed the airbag light or plugged the horn in yet. When I was reconnecting the battery (ground) it sparked (not sure if that means anything). I’ve checked the...

    Hello, I have a tricky one on my hands if anyone could help. My e46 wants to start and die when I’ve already ran it for a while and the engine is heated up. I can’t even keep it going with the throttle. I know the check engine light has been on the entire time I’ve owned the car, but I never...

    Hi guys, new to the forum but I've been lurking and reading for a few weeks. I've just bought an 2003 e46 318i, and I'm having major issues getting it to start. When I got it, it was throwing a cam sensor code - I replaced both cam sensors, and the crank sensor - but still no start. I turns...

    Hey All: So new week, new problem :p My set of keys to my e46 died (or so I think) usually I put the key into the ignition and the car doesn't start whatsoever. So most of the time I sit in my car turning the key on and off for anywhere from 3 turns to 5-10min. The car always eventually...

    Hello, My car (automatic 2001 325i, my first car/first bmw) was sounding rough, like an old boat. It was driving fine, just sounded terrible. Reading the CEL, I had 2 misfires, so I replaced the misfiring coils and all the spark plugs because they were overdue. This is where it gets fun- it...
