    Hey there. I own a 94 318i convertible that unfortunately I rolled into a ditch going over a bridge at 20mph. The crash itself only shattered the windsheild but the recovery did a lot of body damage. I have looked online for new side mirrors and trim but have not been able to find anything. Also...

    I have no vacuum in the secondary air system. All components downstream from the canister are working fine. The furthest I've trace the vacuum line back to its source is the canister, (which is under the lower intake manifold and very difficult to access.) In a diagram of the secondary air...

    Hoping someone can help- I have a 1995 318i convertible with a M44 engine (basically a 95/96 hybrid, so I am told). My problem is that the base of the 96 temp sensor has the correct threading for the engine, but the wrong connector. The 95 has the wrong engine threads & correct connector. Where...

    So I've heard all the feedback on BG 44k through the gas tank, and how it seems to be a reliable product in terms of low potential harm and slightly higher quality ingredients. Then I've heard all the variations of responses regarding seafoam through the tank, oil, and intake (vacuum line). Many...

    Hi. I'm looking to buy an 1994 E36 318is. I know about the cooling problems and many other problems that will happen shortly after I buy this car. What stumps me though, is that after I test drove the car, the engine was really hot. The temp gauge was reading halfway and coolant seemed ok. But...

    Hello E36ers, I have a 1996 318ic (convertible) with a driver's side door panel that's about to fall off. The map pockets cracked when the door closed. I'd really like to replace the panel. I've googled and searched this forum for any vendors that may sell a new or reconditioned part. I...

Bad noise between 80-100 km/hr while stepping on the accelerator for increasing speed while the engine is at about 2500-3000 RPM. Upon releasing the accelerator pedal the noise diminishes remarkably. Putting hand on the gear...
