Hey guys, My car has been acting weird for the past 2 months and I find out it was the CMP Intake Sensor(Car stalled a lot and would not start sometimes). Any ways I bought some non-OEM sensors from kragen, and the second day after installing them they gave me the same exact problems. Then I read that Febi Sensors are Sh!t...so I return them. Went to Tischer and bought OEM intake cmp sensor and all seems good atm. Only drove the car like 10 miles. Hopefully the problem is now fixed. :) Now for the oil. I read a ton of threads regarding oil on e46fanatics and bimmerfest, and both had about 5~6 different oils I could choose from. So I was using Mobil 1 0W-40 before and now switched to Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30, which I read is BMW-LL01 approved.
I got this because I live in SoCal and the weather never drop below 35F, so no point in super thick oil. I hope everything is good for the next 10k miles. Wish me luck guys :craig:
