Now I go and scan the codes on the car I get so many codes , camshaft sensor, vacuum leak, o2 sensor. I check and I realized that the cam shaft sensor was disconnected and the hose that goes to the big boot was broken so I fixed all that and replaced all the plugs which they were really bad and did an oil change, the car runs and drives so much better now but I still hear that knocking noise
I don't think it's a 6MT. Still a good find BTW.

2000 Dinan S1 //M5 (my DD), 06 DINAN E53 4.8iS (wife's DD), 90 Straman Z32TT (my pride & joy ride)
Gone, but not forgotten: 01 E53 3.0i, 01 525i Sport, 03 DINAN 540i MSport, 01 //M5 and 91 Z32TT
