  1. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    started driving, car working normally got on highway and drove about 35 miles at highway speed (65-85mph) when I exited the highway and went to put the car in neutral the clutch suddenly only had about an inch of throw and it stayed really low to the floor the whole time it still worked, but...

    Its a 2000 E39 M5, all stock except a Turner Motorsport tune. I'm getting some pretty strange and random clutch feedback on my '00 M5. So on a normal day, the clutch grabs fine cold and hot with maybe some slight drag when shifting fast at WOT. Recently, it's been doing some weird stuff. One...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all. New here and am new to BMWs so I'm not very knowledgeable. I've been having an issue with my '08 335xi. 54k miles. The issue is only prevalent when the car is cold so I deal with it every morning. With the clutch pedal fully depressed, the car still creeps forward ever so slowly. Like...

    Hi all. Turns out I'm having some unexplainable break pedal problems. I've read some other posts about people with similar problems but they don't seem to have the exact same symptoms. Whenever I press the break pedal 70% or more, the whole car, pedal, and steering wheel will shake violently...

    Hi all, This is the second issue I've had with my car. First was the electrical humming after car has been turned off for some time. NOW....Its the gas pedal and the awful noise it makes and the feeling on my foot. Does anyone else have this issue? It has nothing to do with the hinge of...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1993 325i and whenever i press the gas there is a delay in the accleration and it makes a sucking noise in the engine. It even makes the idle dip down slightly, about 200-300 rpm and its a manual so this is an annoying problem when trying to take off. Any help would be appriciated. i...

    Hi Everyone! I just purchased a CPO'd 2007 E92 and am getting started on my mods right away! After seeing some pics online, I decided i wanted my first mod to be the aluminum pedal upgrade to match my aluminum trim interior. I wanted to make a little post about my adventures with the install...
  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    The most common cause of this seems to be the loss of vacuum in some way. The typically recommended repair is to replace the pump and the brake booster, as well as the check valve and vacuum line. Somewhere around $2k for those of us not under warranty. After a little research and back & forth...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    '99 528i - Replaced all four sets of brake pads and rotors on the brother-in-law's BMW. Symptom is that once the car is started, the brake pedal slowly sinks to about 1-2 inches from the floor. When not started, brake pedal is firm. Seems to me like a master cylinder problem, but I am not...

    Problem bleeding the brakes on a 97' 740il *Fixed* What is the trick of bleeding the brakes? I am unable to bleed the rear-brakes on my 740il. I had to take the rear calipers of yesterday while changing the pads and rotors, to get them thoroughly cleaned. So after i was done, i asked my wife...
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've been reading about the kickdown switch for e36's recently so i gave it a shot on my 325i. After a few runs, i noticed that my switch didnt seem to work. I read more about it and found out that if i cant "click" the switch with my finger, then the switch is broken... I tried this out and the...
  16. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Ok, its a 1987 325is, 164,000 miles, automatic trans. I started having this issue after I drove it home the three hours it took from Grand Rapids.... I had a problem where the car idled fine, but under a load it would hesitate to pick up at all, I had to put the pedal to the floor to get...
  17. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, Since I am a newbie to motors, it should come as no surprise to you that when I was left in the middle of a crossroad here in London with an accelerator (gas) pedal stuck, I had to wait and call RAC recovery. They noticed that it was not the pedal stuck, but the lever, under the boot...
