    Video of noise here: It was low on coolant so I filled up the reservoir a bit under the max. I drove it around after fixing an electrical problem and everything seemed fine. It wasn't making this noise when it started up, but it has been sitting for a few months. After about 10 minutes of...

    Hey X5 family. Im having an issue with a rattling sound coming from the engine of my X5. It sounds like its coming from the top of the engine and it just started maybe a week or so ago.

  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I've searched far and wide to try to find an answer to what is causing this annoying rattling sound I can hear inside the car. There is a rattling noise coming from either behind the iDrive screen, the steering wheel, or in between the both of them under the dash. It sounds like something is...
  5. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi fellow members, I rarely ask for help with my car as usually I know what's wrong with it, but this time I am baffled. I have a 1997 E36 20i Convertible with the M52B20 engine in very nice condition, but it's done 290k kilometres. We went on a long journey (from Bari, Italy back home to...
  6. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Well my 2004 X3 started making this noise when I'd start up my car and then I realized the engine rattle would go away when I pressed the clutch in. It got worse three weeks ago and I was forced the take it to a mechanic. He said it was my throw out bearing so he replaced that, the pressure...

    Hey guys, Firstly I drive a 1996 e39 bmw. I have a few problems I need help/advice on fixing, I'd prefer to do this all myself however it's my first bmw and basically my first car so I'm unsure of how to go about it. Number one: I have an airbag light permanently on on the dash. Number 2: just...

  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So Ive had my 3 series for a few weeks now and Ive recently noticed a rattling noise from the rear door panels whenever the vehicle flexes, during small turns, over bumps or driveways etc. Now im kind of starting to panic as I dont know if this is normal or if there was accident damage as this...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Disclaimer: If this has been asked before, I have not been able to find it, nor an answer. I drive a 2002 540i. I am in the process of selling it, but recently I noticed something was happening with the steering wheel. Whenever I would turn it significantly to one side, I often hear a...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have 2010 BMW 535i xDrive, completely stock. I have been hearing the rattle from the waste gate for sometime now, took it to the dealership and they said "it's normal, the waste gate is normally a loud component" and I should keep driving it. The rattling has now gotten much worse and...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    so in the past week ive noticed a new noise coming from my e30. when i release my clutch pedal and my car is in neutral (so i can idle at standstill like in my driveway) I noticed a very distinct, and seemingly painful(for the car) rattling noise come from the transmission/driveshaft area under...
  14. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I got my new 2012 328i sedan about three weeks ago. This is my first Bimmer. So I am not familiar with the sound of the engine. After the second day, I noticed the engine made a strange tapping/rattling noise when idling. It's not a really loud noise, but you can hear it from inside the car. It...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2000 540i 6speed with 146000 miles. I was driving down the highway last night and came to a city where the speed limit changed to 45. I left it in 6th gear to cruise through the city and noticed a slight vibration through the steering wheel. I put it in neutral and it went away so I...
  16. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    When I accelerate at about 2500rpm I hear a "clattering" or "rattling" sound. I assume it is detonation. I was advised to try a higher octane fuel, which I did. I also used a fuel additive (octane booster) which has not had any noticeable effect. I have read that a "colder" plug may fix the...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Ok, so I have looked EVERYWHERE for an answer and have yet to find one, so I thought I'd give a forum a shot! I have a 2007 328i Sedan and got a new sub and amp put in it last night. The sub is a 12' JBL sub and sounds awesome in the cab of the car. However, when you shut the trunk and stand...
