Thanks for the response and sorry for the lack of info. Flip the shifter to the left and you are in Sport mode, where the transmission takes on a whole new persona. The 3 Series is due for a major redesign next year and that has a few purists concerned. As I understand it, dual mass flywheels cause a rattling under heavy engine load when they are on the way out, as the springs are broken and cause the flywheel to rattle back and forth a bit when a cylinder fires. My car was worth every penny I bought it for.

They utilised a variant of the M54 engine named the. By the way this only occurred after I replaced the fuel filter?????? Its makes it a horrible car to drive at, i prefer to jump in my Wife's Skoda Citigo! Any opinions or experiencesof your own? It's always at 3000 rpm, most noticable in 2nd and 3rd gear when accelerating moderately. To downshift, you push it forward. There is a significant stutter in the throttle at over 3000rpm when driving at highway speed, to the point where it makes passing dangerous. What rpm should these engines idle at?.
When cold this isn't an issue, revs a lot more freely. Archived from on 2 April 2013. Might even be at no charge since it might be is an emission related item. Before you decide, ask any lawyer you are considering to send you free written information about their qualifications and experience. What i also noticed was that when i try and pull away, once the car is warm, the revs drop just slightly at biting point before i can pull away smoothly. How much should i expect to pay to repair? As with most M engines, the S54 has 6 individual , in this case electronically operated. In fact, the engine pulled very strong.
And would you ever consider a used Clutch and Flywheel? I'll report back but i am not very hopeful at this stage. The M3 was released in late 2000 and was produced in coupé and convertible body styles. Although it had about 67K on the speedo. Mine is a 6 speed manual. Winding roads gave you the impression that you could thread a needle better than any other car in this class, or any class for that matter. In late 1993, design work began under chief designer and continued into 1995.
I see that you say it isnt the 4K dip, but. Once in 2nd gear or higher and above 2. Parts are expensive as I replaced a simple sensor already. I did chcek the air filter-clean. What sort of smoke are you pushing out the tail end? You may have a clutch problem such as a release bearing or even gearbox input shaft bearing, which can give a rattle with the clutch up idling in neutral. Also when i got home the other night i had my window open and heard a rattling noise that was deflecting against the wall i was next to. The clutch itself feels fine though.
I am not expert on clutches though it must be said. So this review will focus on our rear-wheel drive automatic version and the changes that were made since our last. If your girlfriend is not running a premium grade fuel from a high line fuel provider Amoco, Chevron, Exxon start there with a few tanks of known quality gasoline. In the automatic mode, shifts were all but imperceptible for relaxed cruising. An important part of this issue is that from a cold start the acceleration is soooo much better, revs more freely and accelerates more smoothly, feels effortless. Since you have to take coils out anyhow why don't you check values for coils just a suggestions. Something just isn't right once the car warms up, so after 5mins the cars bogs low down.
Our stage 2 chip is dyno proven with the highest gains on this market! I will keep an eye on this thread to see if the clutch is the cause of the jerking. Unlike last year, this package is now available with the Steptronic automatic transmission as well as with the 6 speed manual transmission. Suspension was modified over the standard suspension with firmer springs and dampers, larger anti-roll bars, stronger front control arm ball joints, a lower ride height, heavy duty steering rack, and slightly more negative. I also have a 2004 330Ci with the same type of throttle hesitiation at about 3000 rpm under acceleration. We are going to mimmick open throttle by jumping the relay behing the glove compartmnet and then put a fuel gauge on the shrader valve for the fuel rail. The car has 51k and has had the recommended service performed.

As others have stated, this is not the greatest car for winter driving. The stiffer chassis and suspension system were a carryover from the race version. The E46 sedan was unveiled via press release on November 11, 1997 and was launched on the market at the end of April 1998 with customer deliveries. It Idles well, doesn't bounce, but i do need a little bit of gas before slipping the clutch to make sure pull away is smoother, its not great when in traffic. It is called the performance package; which adds 4 bhp and 8 lb-ft of torque to the original engine, making the final 235 bph and 222 lb-ft of torque.

This isn't good news because of the cost involved. But fear not, those of us who caught a glimpse of the new 3 undergoing track testing tell me that the styling will be evolutionary and quite clean and attractive. This is a sports sedan that can haul your family albeit slightly small , and yet it turns into a sports car on the track and the mountain roads. A list of things i think it could be. It is fabricated for the first time in 2000.
