    So just yesterday, i was letting the car idle, when all of a sudden there’s this clanking clattering noise. I go over, try to see what’s up, turn off the car, etc. When i started the car next, the noise was gone. Since then, it’s become a nonstop noise that goes away depending on how high the...

    Selling a valve cover from an M52tub28, bit dirty but in decent shape. No visible cracks. Believe it was off an e39 but should fit an e46 afaik. Pics of part number to be sure. Was keeping as a spare, liquidating to finish a swap :) Asking $80, will ship at buyer's expense or pickup near...
  3. ///M3 Forum
    I recently bought my first M car, a beautiful Topaz Blue 2003 M3 a couple months ago and I am in desperate need of a better exhaust system. I am fairly new to all of this so I am apologizing in advance for being a noob. My goal is to have an exhaust system where I can open a valve and have pure...

    I was in 3rd, went to shift into 4th at about 5500rpm and I shifted into 2nd... Don't know how or why I have never done this and car instantly lurched and looked like it hit over 7k... Instantly pushed clutch in couldn't have been more than a second. I coasted in neutral and engine was idling...

    Thought I'd share my experiences trying to replace the cylinder head for under $1,000 in case anyone is thinking about doing this. This was the first time I'd ever even re-timed an engine, my background is mechanical engineering. If you're at all mechanically inclined and can follow...

    If I have the crankshaft 30 degrees out of TDC (against the direction of normal motion), can I freely turn the camshafts without worrying about valve-piston interference?
  8. General E46 Forum
    A while ago I ran across a thread about a valve in the tailpipe of an E46. Someone mentioned they were there to keep volume down at low speed and open up the exhaust tone at highway speeds. It was claimed that only 330i's had them. This morning I noticed that exhaust was only coming out of...

    Gasket is replaced so thats good. While reinstalling I sheared the center stud in the front. (Pic 1) Nearest BMW shop is 65 miles away so can I get away with driving it with it missing? If Not can I seal it with RTV and drive it? Second this little brittle tube next to O2 sensors decided to snap...

    I was goofing around on youtube today and saw a video of an M20 running without a valve cover and I thought " I gotta try this". Haha, WELL I ended up making a huge mess! I knew theyre was gonna be SOME oil slinging but not that much! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: It was kinda cool to...

    I'm still in the idea phase but I was wondering what is required to do a solid lifter conversion on an M54. I've done quite a bit of searching and havent really found much. Schrick makes a conversion kit but wouldnt you need cams for solid lifters? Can you even get solid lifter cams for an M54...
  12. DIY: Do It Yourself
    I don't know if anyone else has ran into this problem but one night I was working on a head gasket replacement with I*do*Werke on an m52 engine and we had to fully dissemble the head before it was sent to the machine shop. This involved removing the cams, cam trays and valves. Removing the...

  14. ///M3 Forum
    Hi, I'm a proud new owner of an E46 M3. As I'm located in a relatively small city (Ottawa, Ontario Canada), its difficult to find a garage competent and qualified enough to trust with my car (aside from the stealership). I seem to have a problem with my engine and I'm looking for your valued...

  18. General E46 Forum
    I've been looking to E46Fanatics for information since I bought my 2001 325CI. The heater is giving me a fit. I took the car to a shop who wouldn't touch it and ended up at the dealer where they diagnosed a bad thermostat and heater control valve. I replaced all the parts myself including a new...
