    Hello, I am new to this website I have a 1997 bmw z3 1.9l and I have searched and search for this issue and nothing has come up. I have a fuel trim code (P1170 and P0170). I checked the short and long term fuel trim. Im getting roughly 2% on short term and -19% on the long term. I already...

    Admin delete if not allowed just thought I’d try my luck! Was hoping to get some advice on a problem I am having with my e36 318is 97. Firstly I had a ews fault with my ecu, after getting that sent off and deleted I was keen to get the car back on the road. Plugged the ecu back in, bridged a...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    A little bit over a year ago, I started engine swapping my manual 1997 318i. I picked up an automatic 1998 328i, and swapped my 5spd trans onto it and put in in the chassis. I also purchased a K+DCAN Cable from eBay to plug into the 20pin under the hood for ews rolling code alignment. I now have...

    Bought this very clean 97 318ti (M) at 188k miles, been driving everything great to 191k miles. Now engine cuts out completely for several seconds, then runs for a few seconds. Limped home, keeping above 4000 RPM let the engine run continuously, but would immediately stall if not hels at high...

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of swaping my m43 engine over to either m44 or m42 , i know that the gearbox is the same and i need an exhaust and loom-ecu but what happens with EWS system? do i get to keep my own if i use an m44 since its obd II like my engine? Do i need to swap my current...

    So I recently had to replace a knock sensor on my 95 318is. In the process, I found that there was a missing bolt and whoever messed with the manifold last broke the bolt attached to the lower manifold, which probably explains the air leak code I've been reading. So, after deciding that it would...

    Hello, I'm looking for some advice on my m44 weilding BMW. It had overheated and turned off and will not start. The head gasket is not blown since there is no mixture and I had checked the spark plugs for coolant and found nothing. It's not seized as it sounds as if it wants to turn over but...

    Hi, all there~ Greeting from Perth, Australia~ I'm a owner of a 2002 BMW 318i E46. Recently my automatic gearbox turns faulty as I cannot drive it over 50km/h. The mechanic guy quoted over 1500 AUD to recondition it. Meanwhile, he suggested seeking a second-hand gearbox to replace it, which...
  10. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi, Folks – Longtime forum appreciator, first time poster. I wish it was under better circumstances. So a couple of months ago, while fixing a standard oil leak around my Z3's oil filter housing, some sort of foreign object –*might have been a piece of the gasket or a piece of sludge...

  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi guys, recently bought a e36 318i auto (M43) And have gone about swapping a m44 from a 318ti manual into it. I have swapped the ecu, both ews boxes and the ignition barrel so they should all match. Hit the key for the first time this afternoon and the engine cranked but would not fire. I...
  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    For the past 6 months my car has made a ticking/pinging noise from the engine while accelerating (up hills especially). It's a light, fast paced ticking/pinging almost certainly some sort of fuel/air mixture/ignition timing problem. The car idles and cruises fine with no pinging noise. It's a...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    After not changing my oil for a year/5,000kms I noticed a tapping noise develop in my engine. I drive a 318is coupe with an m44 engine that has done a little over 200,000kms. The tapping noise doesn't happen upon start-up, it doesn't happen in neutral throughout the rev range, it doesn't happen...

    Hi everyone! I've been helping my dad try to fix my car for the last six months and I'm really anxious to get it on the road but it has to get through inspection first. I think it's going to fail because all I did was pull a fuze. It hasn't been functioning correctly for two years now and I'm...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and a new bmw owner. After months of looking I finally purchased an e36. It's a 96 318is with low miles clean car. Checked it out before buying everything looked good. I went ahead and started daily driving this week to see how it ran and it was doing great. A little...

    Hi everyone! So I have already looked through all the results of the search function for my problem but I've found nothing that matches up so far. I'll try to be descriptive as I can. I bought a 1996 318i 4 door with a 5 speed back in February 2015 and couldn't have been happier! The previous...

    I’ve been a long time lurker, but registered explicitly so I could post this: Those of you with the M44 motor (318ti, Z3, etc.) may already know the heartache of the mysterious intermittent rough idle. My wife’s had this car from the day we bought it, but it was at a tolerable level. The...

    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...
  20. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Here is my dilemma, first off this is my first Beamer. It is a '96 318iS coupe, auto M44 with 309,000 miles. Hit with bad freeze, was creeping along on freeway, car started to overheat so I got off the road. Everything seemed okay when I saw temp drop, going along the car filled with steam and...
