    I'm new to the forums and had my 2012 328i bmw 6 speed m/t for about 9 months. I only have a BMS Stage 1 piggyback on it, I use 93 octane fuel and I change my oil every 5k miles. It drove fine this morning, but around 1:30 pm the car was idling really rough (not dropping from 1k rpm idle) and...

    Hello! My 2005 BMW X3 3.0i is misfiring, shaking, and barely accelerating. I brought it to the mechanic and he said that it is caused by low compression in cylinder 2 and that it can be fixed with a new engine or torn down and fixed but it would cost $3000-5000. The car mileage is over 183,000...

    My 2000 323i has had a rough idle, horrible acceleration, at times I won't be able to get over 20 mph and I'll have to restart the engine, and it's died from having too low of RPMs while idling. The engine light doesn't come on so I don't have any codes. I've been told that this is from a bad...

    After leaving my car in park and idling for more than a few minutes my car will lose a substantial amount of power, and I usually won't be able to get it above 20 mph. When I put the car in park, turn it off, then start it up again the problem goes away. This may be a separate issue but I also...

    Recently, I did a diagnostic check on my 2001 BMW 325 Ci. It provided me with the following codes P0300 P0301 P0174 P0135 P1345 P1352 P1347 P1350 P1343 After clearing these codes, my vehicle started to sputter. I'm confused and still am trying to determine the cause. The only mods that i have...

    Dear all I had a blown head gasket on the driver side bank of my 2005 4.4i. It was still moving and I drove it to a technician with more than 20yrs BMW experience. It was driving fine except for the morning steam blowing out of the driver's side exhaust outlet. Both heads were taken out and...

    Just got our car back for a $2,000 service (brakes, alignment & some steering joints) And now we have this engine light that could be Exhaust valve, fuel cap or misfiring. Checked the fuel cap, that was fine. What is an exhaust valve? (there is one on the engine, but do know if there is a...
