    Hey guys, i have a ‘97 523i M52B25, single vanos, basically the same engine as in 528i just a smaller displacement, so the problem is whenever i start the car and it’s cold outside i get this awful rattle for like 2-3 seconds, the colder it is the longer it rattles, but it’s like for a few...

    2011, N51 328i with almost exactly 150,000 miles. I have observed an irregular noise occurring at most cold starts usually during colder months. The noise is irregular, meaning it has varying frequency. Unlike valve tick, it has a random pattern (like tap--tap-tap-------tap-tap, etc. where...

    Hi lads, Getting a really bad vibration on the really cold mornings when cars first started up and i go from “P” to “D” and hold my foot on the break. It goes away after a couple of minutes of the engine running then smoothes itself out like normal. I have just been told that my 3 rear...

    Hi, My partner has a 4.8l V8 non turbo X5 which runs great except that on colder days it takes 3 or 4 goes to start. Has been serviced recently and no issues were reported. Any ideas about cold start problems? Thanks for any help.

    Hello, I've started experiencing this problem about 2 weeks ago, whenever I start the car in the morning and try to turn the wheel it produces a massive screeching noise. The thing is that the noise usually is no longer produced when the car is running at operational temperature, just when it...

    I am hoping someone can tell me what this noise is. I think it may be a dying alternator but I am not sure as I haven't ever had an alternator die before. The noise happens on a cold start and starts to go away as I rev the engine and it heats up. https://youtu.be/rS5rfbQNanw

    I recently purchased a 2000 328i 5 speed with 170,000 miles. I am not sure if the fuel pump has been replaced by any of the previous owners. The car is suffering from a no start condition in the mornings and after it has sat for long enough to cool down. After I turn the ignition to position 2...

    I own a BMW 323i 2011. My car has been parked outside in the winter for about 2 weeks now in -25 celsius weather since the garage was occupied, when I tried starting it about a week into the cold weather to put it back in the garage it would not start on its own or jump starting it, so I assumed...

    Hello all. I'm brand new to the e90 game. Just picked up my first - a 2007 335i 6 spd. Car was a one owner, has 113,000 miles on it, and has a ton of maintenance done by PO. Here is a clip from a cold start. I have this high-pitched whine, but it's only on a cold start and it goes away...

    Hi guys, I think its time I enlist your help for this problem. My 92 E34 M50 still has problems starting only when engine is cold. It cranks and cranks but does not start unless I play with the gas pedal. You would think its a fuel pump issue but it too has already been replaced and car works...

    Hello, I recently bought a 2010 335D. 400 miles after I bought it an SES light came on. It was something to do with Injector. I had that injector replaced, 15 miles down the road the light came back on. It was too long after this, the first start of the day it started sputtering a little bit...
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Occasionally, especially on colder days, the car would misfire right on startup. The RPMs fluctuate up and down, and it gives me a "Engine Malfunction" error and says in the idrive that damage to the catalytic converter is possible. If I shut the engine off and restart it after about 30 seconds...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Started my 2002 E39 with 125K on it this morning. It ran super rough and shortly threw a CEL. I immediately thought it was a bad ignition coil as it ran exactly like my 330 did when a coil failed. I was surprised to see that the OBD-2 code was P1620 MAP cooling thermostat control circuit...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So today I started the car and everything was fine. I started driving it after it was warmed up, and drove for a few miles. Then the red transmission malfunction indicator popped up, and it felt like the car was not changing gears. I don't really know too much about cars. I pulled into a parking...
