    My 2008 BMW 335xi (6MT , N54) for quite some time has been making this very loud knocking/banging noise that seems to come from under the car during acceleration from a dead stop or faintly from deceleration to a dead stop. I've changed the center support bearing for the driveshaft. Shaft was...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So my car has a knocking sound, it started maybe month or two ago, took it to the mechanic and he said that it's normal for these engines, however, it became louder overtime, and more agressive, at first it was like tapping rather than knocking, i think it is coming from the top-back of the...

  5. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I’ll go over the thumping first. So while I’m driving & I let off the throttle & start coasting it starts thumping continuously, it stops when I steer left not when I steer right tho. Is this maybe bad rotors? Possibly bad wheel bearing? The wheel bearing was just replaced on one side maybe it’s...

  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi folks. When my E36 is folded up, on the driver's side there's a knocking when I hit bumps. Some parts over the years have broken off (plastic parts of some nature) and I'm not sure what it is, nor how to go about trying to fix it. I'm going to put a towel over the whole driver's side...

    So after my attempt of replacing the spark plugs and coils on my 2006 BMW 330XI, my misfire persists. Upon starting the car, there is an obnoxious knocking coming from the engine. When I replaced my cylinder 6 spark plug, the tip of the previous spark plug looked to be pushed in. I glanced into...

  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    This knocking noise started after I got an oil change. We rebuilt the VANOS and when we opened the camshaft cover the entire area was COVERED in sludge and buildup. We cleaned everything and now after all that work the noise has now seemed to shift to the bottom of the engine. Does anyone have...

  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Recently I discovered a metallic noise when I driver over a speed bump or turn a little bit faster in a curve. My BMW X5 35d 2011 drives and brakes normal as it should.Even driving in a dip seems to work fine. I'm a little bit scared to be honest because the metallic sound is quite concerning to...
  18. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    This sound started about 2 weeks ago but I just noticed it was that bad. But when idling and bringing the rpm to 2000-2500 it is clearly a knocking sound. Engine hasn't been starved of oil and oil change was done about a month ago. No check engine light, engine otherwise is smooth, no...
