    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...

    Hey guys, my 2007 328xi e90 has been making this weird noise for the past couple months. I have done research and haven't found anything that resembles the sound I am hearing. It never gave me any noticeable issues so I haven't really done anything to try and fix it. However, I recently started...
  3. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone point me in the right direction on this issue? My N62 has developed a whine/drone that seems to be coming from the passenger side. I removed the main accessory belt and the noise was still present. I didn't want to remove the AC belt because it is a stretch belt, but the noise does...

    I recently purchased a 2000 540i sport 6 speed and it had been great so far, except it has started to make some noise within the valve covers and front of the engine. I replaced the chain tensioner on the passenger side of the car and dropped the oil pan to check for plastic chain guides. There...

    Hello all :) Can anyone help me identify the noise my engine is making? It's especially audible in the last 3 or 4 seconds of the clip. It has been like it for a few years now. BMW aren't interested. My local garage has said it's 'pinking'. Has anyone had similar issues with their F20 and...

    Hi there, I have a BMW E90 2007 and am having some trouble identifying the strange higher pitched engine noise. I accelerated a little longer than I should have in first gear, when suddenly the steering locked up and made a harsh whirring noise when attempting to steer the car. I let the car...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My E46 has been experiencing a rattle or chirp noise from the engine on cold starts and has become more noticeable in the last few days. The noise will go away once the engine is warm, usually after 10 mins. This morning when I was going to work it was noticeable and lasted about 10 mins. The...

    Hi. I have a 2011 328i sedan. 3 days ago I was driving and a extremely loud, high pitched noise started coming from the engine. I pulled over and a friend who was with me tried to see where it was coming from but the noise was so loud they could not even get down close enough to the engine...

    Dear friends, I bought my carbon black BMW 535i m-sport in 2012. To this day I absolutely adore the car, however, it's visited the service center one too many times. The latest issue at only 30K miles is this noise: http://youtu.be/y1hGzDufjHA No service lights, no codes. It's now at the...
