    I had a issue with my BMW e46 320D . It was losing power and had black smoke . After problems investigation I was focused on Turbocharger Pressure transducer or so called Turbocharger regulator, it’s purpose is to control an vacuum actuator valve which control on the other hand the geometry of...
  2. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Folks, my X3 started doing something fairly unexpected recently and I do not know enough about the car to even make an educated guess. It is, first of all, a 04/2014 production 35i with 73kmi on the clock. It's been more-or-less OK in the past, save for necessitating a rather premature - I...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    2011 318D N47 once warm (20 min of high rev driving) plumes of blue grey smoke when at 1.5k revs and over when constant pressure on the accelerator is maintained. known fault: DPF is blocked, and I’ve read it could be the failing regen causing excessive pressure and pushing oil into the...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have a 2003 BMW 745i with a Oil leak problem. I am going to a car show soon and I heard about products called “Oil Leak Stop” and I was wondering if it would work for a small amount of time because the engine randomly smokes and I won’t want that happening at the show. So is there any...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, new to the forum, I’ve tried to include as much detail as I can think of. I was wondering if anyone has an educated guess on why I get intermittent exhaust smoke plumes when the engine is hot. scenario: 107,000 miles, no error lights or codes, and nothing out of the ordinary in a live log...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2004 325i E46 aka “nymphoE4666” Also more exhausting and mind boggling than angsty children 😅🤦🏻‍♀️ Any way she blows thick white smoke out rear exhaust Not all the time Sometimes it’s a perfect ride Other times we white out the chic fil a parking lot while idling at the drive thru and want to...
  7. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hey guys! I recently bought a 2003 325i with 225k miles on it. When it gets up to temp it blows smoke from exhaust. But it doesnt use any coolant. It also sounds like it has a “miss” but it doesnt throw any codes for a miss. It vibrates the car a little. Has lack of power. And it does throw...
  8. General BMW Questions
    What’s good everyone? I have a 2002 X5 3.0i 3.0L w/ 231k miles...and its smoking like a chimney. Sluggish, acceleration virtually nonexistent. Only way I can keep up with traffic is manually switching gears. My MAF sensor is bad, that’s in process as we speak. Codes pulled : P1347, P0455, P0161...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have an X3 E83 M54. A few months back, I realized that there was smoke coming out from the vent and I thought it was just an one time event because it did not happen for a few days. The second time it happened, I tried to figure out where the smoke was coming from and it seems that its coming...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, my e90 has some serious problems I've been trying to fix for months now. IF YOU WANT TO SKIP DIRECTLY TO MY QUESTION YOU CAN GO DIRECTLY TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH The car throws no codes other than a VERY rare "DME MIXTURE CONTROL" code. The car stumbles, cuts off, has really choppy...

    Hi everyone! I've had a couple problems with my car. I REALLY love my car and do not want to get rid of it. First : sometimes when I'm driving the transmission malfunction light comes on and the car slows down to 40 mph. IIt will not drive any faster or change gears. Sometimes pulling off to...

  13. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    Hey there happy N63 owners! Or should that be unhappy? Last week driving to a customer meeting in the Oakland maze, my car was flagged because of excessive smoke. Nothing new, of course, but this time it was missing along with it. I could see some smoke coming from the top left of the engine...
  14. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    Guys, I have read about the engine malfunction and reduced power warning thread, it seems like the pressure valve is bad, BUT, mine 2011 e71 was shaking after the warning pop up, i finally parked it at the drive way after about 3 mins from the warning pop up, i could smell smoke, heavily, is...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello everyone! I've heard great things about these forums and hope I am in the right place. I'm a relative novice when it comes to the inner workings of cars (unfortunately) but I wanted to post here and see if anyone has any ideas on my 2012 BMW 335i that just recently hit 100K miles. The...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2005 330xi w/220,000mi. Car is in perfect condition, so would like to repair if I can. Short story. Drove car to airport end of December - car was fine. Went to start car on return 5 days later (single digit temperatures for days), and as soon as car was started, it was producing EXCESSIVE...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi So I bought my car back in December of last year. Its turned out to be a bit of a dog, but that what I get for buying a car at 50% market value. No such thing as a free lunch and all. Ever since getting the car i have noticed that it is losing oil pretty fast. I have so far topped it up...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So I bought my e36 320i a month ago, last time I noticed that there was coming white smoke out of the exhaust. It has 250k km. I don't have any coolant loss but the oil as low. I did not warm the engine up yet because it is not registered and I can not take it to the street. I also changed my...
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi All, I'm about to replace the valve stem seals on the N62. I found two brands for the TOOLS : 1) AGA - link (well known, seen on many diy) 2) Kommen tools (link) Seems like they have almost same components. I'll probably go with AGA, but by curiosity : Has anyone used the Kommen...
