    I noticed that my car has had a whine from the engine bay. The whine stops when I push the clutch in. Only whines when I'm not moving. I am curious what sound that is and a tad concerned. I'm stumped *only on cold starts

    Hi guys, I have got an odd whine noise coming from the transmission area. It is dependent from the speed not from the revs. I replaced the CSB and guibo but noise still there. When i got to 50+ kmh its start but randomly stops and came up again. Anyone an idea? It would be very appreciated...

    So, a while back I noticed that I was getting a certain whine/whistle from my m3's engine bay while driving. The whistle only appears when using light throttle at speed, maintaining speed, or when going downhill. The whistle generally starts around 2500rpm and gets drowned out by the engine...

    Hey Fanatics! So I just noticed this squeal/whine coming from my engine bay on my 2003 E46 xi - it happens both under load and when in neutral and starts around 2,000 RPM. The engine only has 155,000km (96,000mi) and I've kept all my fluids changed regularly. I flushed my PS fluid a few weeks...

    https://1drv.ms/v/s!AltQ9OjhpFs9h2A_uWYgHUS1sE5I From what I can tell: It just started yesterday, does not effect any car functions (that I know of), it sources from the front driver side and can be heard more if the window is down. Extremely similar noise is generated via climate control...

    Hi all, For the past few weeks I have noticed a whine coming from the front end of my 318Ci it starts at around 30mph and gets louder as the speed increases. The strange thing is if I turn the wheel left slightly while driving the noise eases off.. I would really appreciate some advice thank you

    I've searched online for an answer but nothing yet. So anyways I have a 2003 e46 that I bought 2 years ago and haven't done anything with the power steering since. I popped the hood and decided to check it and it wasn't even up to the dipstick... I haven't had steering issues but I've heard on...

    Video below. From what I've read (great guide on noises btw!), seems like a pulley? Just wanted confirmation that it is in fact safe(ish) to drive until I can swap out the pulleys. Youtube link here Also, you might notice a ticking sound in the video as well. I'm hoping it's just my spark...

    Alright guys, I’m going to describe this in as much detail as possible, so please bear with me… 2003 330i by the way, auto transmission (recently replaced) This morning I was enjoying a rather spirited drive, going about 85 mph in a low gear with the music up a little bit louder than it...

    Yes, another whistle thread. Been looking through and I've heard that a whistle could either be the idler tension pulley or the air intake boot, but it doesn't exactly sound like that. I came out from work tonight and heard it start to whistle as I got in the highway. It's extremely faint -...

    I have an 03 330ci and have been dealing with an annoying whine sound for the past few weeks, and it has finally driven me mad. It seems to be coming from down near the pedals (most likely brake), and is audible inside the car, but not outside. When I put my foot on the brake the noise goes...

    Hello to everyone. Recently bought a 330ci auto with 80k miles. I swapped from diesel so now my 3 litre engine sound quite different:) When Im driving my car at any speed with low rev all is good. No noises or nothing. But if I press a pedal a bit harder and start accelerating and than...
