[solved] '96 328i - Rattling noise : starter, flywheel, engine?...
First of all, let me say that I am a very new owner of a BMW and pleased to join the Bimmerfest community.
My post today concerns a noise that appeared 2 days ago (at cold) during ignition and is still present since then.
To quickly sum up :
- the car is an automatic, 96 328i convertible.
- the previous major problem was over-heating & a mixture oil/water because of the head gasket failure - the dealership told me it was fixed before I bought it
- the car runs (I drove it from work to the mechanics to home, it's about 30 minutes) but makes a hell lot of noise.
- the noise grows weak if I accelerate but it's quite loud when idling
I posted some videos on Youtube:
1rst day the problem appeared
A quick search in the forum brought me up to this post http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=589065, looks like the noise is kinda similar.
I'm kinda stuck right now. What do you think?
