Non-M3 Coolant Vent-to-Atmosphere Tube?

Hi All,
Does the non-M3 E36 have a vent tube which allows coolant to be expelled if the system exceeds a certain pressure? I just finished my cooling system overhaul, and I'm sure I've gotten all...

If you've got a metal-on-metal sound when you take off, a simple thing to check is the dust shield. Make sure it isn't rubbing on the rotor. You could even just reach behind the wheel and bend it out...

Thanks folks. I've got the car up on blocks right now working on the rear hubs, but once I've got it back on the road (this week) I'll give that a shot.

^^ This. If your engine doesn't sound different, you're probably fine. I would recommend back-handing 3-4 shifts to reduce the likelihood of moneyshifts.

Strange Door Issues -- Problems Opening Driver's Side Door (coupe)

I searched around for this, but it doesn't seem like anyone has the same problem. I believe the driver's side door lock, handle and window work properly. I usually pull gently on the door...

Any chance you've got mismatched wheels/tires? A difference in rotational speed will confuse your ASC system.

Slippage will be most noticeable in a higher gear (5th) than a lower one, once you hit the torque peak.

Make sure that you're not driving it while its overheating. You'll blow the HG and warp the head. Very quickly.

I'm 75% sure my car does have a clutch safety switch. I.e. the car won't start unless you're on the clutch.

But the no-power to the OBC is your problem, not the clutch.

JKRIT is right. Lots of people delete that fan, so you're probably OK without it for a short time.

I just want to reiterate this point: overheating your engine will be super bad. Like $2000 bad....

Sounds to be like a trailing arm bushing. If the bushing goes, the trailing arm will clank directly against the mount. I had it happen after I did some work on the rear wheels. It basically dislodged...

I'd start by pulling the plugs and seeing what they look then. If that doesn't tell you much, i'd try pulling one plug wire at a time and see if that changes how the engine behaves. If you pull a...

If your rtabs are bad, it is possible that you've got the metal trailing arm resting directly against the mount point (metal on metal). That could transfer noise into the chassis, I suppose.
