    I changed the oil and spark plugs removing each one at a time while cranking the engine to get any water out. Cleaned and dried my filter and ran a blow dryer to dry out any moisture in the intake. I got it driving again but it cuts out when gettin off the freeway or when idling. (I also just...

    i talked to a few guys about coolant in there cars, and I have heard a magnitude of things such as: water its plenty fine (distilled of course), "water wetter" helps but only in certain cars, anything gold (coolant wise) will work from german cars because it contains an oil additive such as the...

    Rained on Saturday and on Monday morning I noticed that the passenger side front & rear carpet was soaked. After damage control with a shop vac & dehumidifier, I spent some time on E46fanatics trying to figure out where to start looking for the source of the water entry. Started by checking...

    I have a lovely water leak in my driver's side A-Pillar. I'm about to take it apart for the third time, but I'm 90% sure its not the sunroof drain. When I use the hose with the A-Pillar off there is no leak, but right now there is a slight drizzle outside and it has caused it to leak. If...
