    My 01 325I has an issue starting sometimes. I will turn the key over to start the vehicle and it makes a weird vacuum noise when it should be turning over. It will do it once or twice and then it will start fine. Just recently I was driving and my car downshifted kind of hard then my dsc...

    Hi all. 2001 325Ci, very likely to be the Euro version, not US. I'm trying to do a throttle body and ICV clean, but the car is so old that everything is stuck. The ICV will not come out. I've removed the two Torx bolts and disconnected the electrical clip. Am I forgetting something? In every...

    Hey guys I'm new to this forum. I have a 2002 e46 5spd. I bought the car used and yesterday I tried to start my car and it wouldn't rev over 1500 rpms. Sometimes it would bog down or just stall. I found a tear in my intake boother, then wanted to check the ICV and the throttle body. My throttle...

    I have a problem on my 318 that I think is related with valvetronic operation. Car stalls sometimes when warming up. power and MPG are pretty bad. Actually I'm not sure valvetronic works at all, because I was driving few days with disconnected sensor and didn't feel difference. Today I...

    Looking for ideas for cleaning throttle body. I seen a you tube video where a guy stated not to move the butterfly because you can knock the throttle body out of calibration. Has anyone else heard of this? I started cleaning with q-tips and a little throttle body cleaner but not moving the...

    Hello everyone! *I have a 2004 325i M56 (unfortunately) and I have a few questions to ask. I got 3 error codes: P0172&0175 (Bank 1 and 2 running too rich) along with P2122 (throttle position sensor), which I would assume is built into the throttle body? *My second thinking is that my MAF is...

    Hello, I'm currently on break from working on my CCV. Believe it or not, I'm rolling into my fifth hour and I've just finished undoing all the screws necessary to finish the job.

    I have a 2000 BMW 323ci. The person I bought it from treated this car like crap and now I am reaping the rewards. Lately the EML light would come on accompanied with the DSC light. This would go away after turning off the car and letting it sit for a minute then restarting. I knew this would...

    Just finished up my CCV job. Can't find any information out there on throttle body torque specs. I tightened them pretty good and used a new gasket. Should I worry about getting those to spec?

    I impulsively bought my 2003 325i last fall because it looked great and was priced right. It ran great for the last ten months and 4,000 miles. Check engine light came on after I fueled the last time however. (had difficulty twisting gas cap off) I assumed the gas cap wasn't sealing but...

    I cleaned my ICV, TB and DISA one day, re-assembled everything to what I thought was near perfection. Keep in mind my ICV has 190k miles on it, it took two bottles of CRC throttle body to loosen it finally. I started it the next day, and a complete initial stall happened, it turned over but revs...
