    When I replaced spark plugs last time, I noticed that two of the ignition coils have a funny-looking surface. At first I thought they were caked with greasy oil, but the uneven texture is the surface itself and is rock hard. It looks like the plastic has melted or been attacked by a chemical...

    Just as a test: If I have a car that runs well (no problems) and I pull off the vacuum line that controls the EGR valve and plug that vacuum line so there is no leak , how will the engine perform? Does the EGR stay closed and not allow exhaust gases into the air intake? Will it run: Better...

    Hi all, I bought an e46 BMW 330ci model 2001 one week before and there was an excessive leakage of coolant from the heater inlet pipe which was in worst condition you can see in the pictures. I went to mechanic yesterday to change this with new one which I already purchased so they removed...

    Hello, I have done a lot of reading on all the BMW forums, and my 2004 E46 SMG M3 has dreaded SMG problems. The car won't go into gear sometimes, sometimes it will get stuck in a gear, recently it seems it has been going into neutral when it says it's in gear, and once it wouldn't even start...

    Hi fellow forum members, Ive been having some trouble trying to figure out why my speedometer lights arent working. But my Traction control light and emergency brake lights work. It started after I installed and after market radio. (Dont know if that has anything to do with it.) Just wondering...

    Alright, so here's the story. One of my lights stopped working, so I popped open my hood one day and discovered that the cap on top of the enclosure of the Xenon lamps on my 330Ci was loose. My initial thought was that the bulb had gone, so I replaced both, but to no avail. I had driven through...

    Hi everyone, thanks in advance to everyone who responds to my post. Believe me I've done a lot of research, but still haven't narrowed down the problems and haven't found any visible problems. Therefore, I thought I'd post my symptoms and see if anyone can help me diagnose it. Engine Codes as...

    Hi, I know I'm new here but I've been using the site to help fix things in my car for a while now, so I appreciate all the help you guys are here to give. Anyways, here's a rundown of my situation. A few months back my windshield wiper fluid sprayer stopped working, and so even though I'm using...

    Hello everyone, I've searched on the threads for this combination of codes and only found one post, but it didn't have any answers or follow up, so I'm posting with the hope that someone can point me in the right direction as far as diagnosing the car goes. I hate to do it, but if I don't figure...

    First of, do you think a 2003 325i manual with 125,000 miles for 5,300 a good deal? It's a very clean can and has a good carfax. I went to go check out the car today and heard this sound coming from the engine. Does anyone know what could be causing this sound? I put a video of it on Youtube...
