  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Just bought a 2010 X5 35D, about 138k miles. I started hearing a squealing sound when accelerating - seems to happen between 1.5-2.5k RPMs. Only under load, can't reproduce in neutral (making it hard to pinpoint where it's coming from). Originally though it was lower intake boot but since can't...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, I have a squealing noise coming from the front accessory area of my 2011 E92 335i coupe with an N55. It all started after I picked up my car from getting a valve cover gasket and oil filter housing gasket done at a BMW dealership. I assume the dealership cleaned up the oil in the...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    All, first time posting in roughly 8 years (it's good to be back). This post is more to vent if anything and to see if anyone else has had this problem / bad luck. I recently replaced the a/c compressor and drier on my 1998 M3 sedan. Previously, when the A/C was turned on (compressor clutch...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Folks, I recently got my oil pan gasket replaced since it was leaking a lot. Ever since the repair was done, I am hearing squeal from the idler pulley/serpentine belt area. I had replaced the serpentine belt, idler and tensioner assembly a year ago. The repair shop says that the oil pan...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Please don't hate on me if there is another thread or a solution or whatever. Just delete it. My 2014 435i developed a severe, and extremely embarrassing brake squeak. This noise just suddenly reared its noisy head. Been to the dealers where they supposedly oiled and lubricated all the relevant...
  6. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    I am hoping someone can tell me what this noise is. I think it may be a dying alternator but I am not sure as I haven't ever had an alternator die before. The noise happens on a cold start and starts to go away as I rev the engine and it heats up. https://youtu.be/rS5rfbQNanw

  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Holla, My brake pads started squeaking a few months ago. So I took them apart, cleaned and greased the following: 1. Caliper guide pins: Greased with silver anti seize 2. Brake pad caliper carrier/braket: Cleaned and greased with the purple brake pad grease from Advanced Auto Parts 3. Brake...
  9. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Was having serious idle looping issues with this M20. Finally figured out it was a coolant bubble at the sensor in the thermostat housing. This morn, the GF started it and it did that power steering howl you sometimes get at start-up, but it just keeps going. Plenty of nasty fluid in there...
  10. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    So, I've had this intermittent issue that I've been too lazy to fix (Only happens for 30 sec at a time), but has gotten severely worse and now it has to be fixed. I believe the heat shield is grinding on my RF rotor. The issue being that it is visibly clear of the rotor in all ways. The way that...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I see this issue with old posts as far back as 2006 but nothing new so I am posting again. I have a squeal especially upon cold start but all the time intermittent. I have replace both belts and still had squeal. I then replace both mechanical belt tensioners (one is on AC unit and the other...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone, My 2002 330i has been making a squealing sound whenever i start an drive the car. The sound stays the same pitch when i drive and i was wondering if it could be the timing chain? do timing chains even do that? I've heard belts make that sound but I am new to chains. Someone...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hopefully someone can assist with where the noise is coming from. So here is the story. On Friday I went to BP to get gas and my car did not full up all the way it stopped right under full. So I went home. I came back out to go to the store and started the car and it stalled... took 2 starts to...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Since February 2013 (2 months after my warranty expired) my 2008 BMW 325i began displaying an annoying intermittent "Electrical System Malfunction" message on my iDrive accompanied by deactivation of the cruise control. Additionally, the AM dial of the radio developed an occasional escalating...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I bought this 2002 525it, M54, auto with 100k miles about a month ago. With the colder weather coming to Virignia, I noticed something different last night when I drove her. While the engine was still cold, she produced a high-pitched squeal when accelerating away from a traffic light. After I...
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I searched around a bit and couldn't come across much so I thought I'd throw this out to the board: Here are the bullet points, a little more description below: -Squealing noise similar to bad power steering happening -Definite freon leak, has been recharged twice in the past 12 months -Noise...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So, here is the deal. I replaced my water pump, pulleys (idler, tensioner, and water pump), and belts. Things were working perfectly for about a year. Then, one night me and my best friend did two 0-60 runs just to see how fast my 97 528 was. This was the only abnormal driving I did since I baby...
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys listen I decided to see if i could get some help here on the fest! Look I had these style 5s and I never had this problem with the style 5s on my car and I decided to upgrade to the M3 Wheels which are 19 inches ( pictures attached ofcourse) :) everything is perfect but here is where...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Right, first thanks for looking. I have a 320cd e46 with 94k miles on it. Had bmw inspection 2 at 90k or so. I notice a slight squeal when accelerating in 2nd gear. Its as if the car has alot of weight to pull. Its worrying. It is not smokey but due to the fact that I notice it is slightly...
