    My E53 is making a horrible whistle noise right after warm start. It lasts for about 2 minutes. The car seems to work fine besides the noise. Below are the symptoms. Anyone has any ideas what might be causing it? ● Cold start: no problem ● Warm start: whistle starts after a few seconds ●...
  2. X Series
    Hello! First time posting a question! I love my X5 and have had it since 2013, despite the many, many repairs. Lol! My latest issue is a high pitched squealing that I can duplicate while parked, accelerating and then letting go. A local mechanic put it on lift and showed me the noise is...

    Hello Everyone, I have a 2013 BMW 528i xdrive and it has been good so far! Recently I have observed several issues as of recent. Firstly, it started to have a small oil leak (coming from the oil drain plug, which I checked by going under the car) and blue smoke that would disappear soon after...

    Hello, New 2019 X3 sDrive30i owner here... My X3 squeals when I back out of the garage and depress the brake pedal. Subsequent stops while in reverse don't squeal. It appears to occur only after the X3 has sat for a while. I never hear it when I brake going forward. I searched for people...

    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.

    Our 2011 128i started idling hard and squealing after driving about 20-30 miles. The shop told us we needed a new Pcv valve. About the same time the recall came out. BMW replaced the valve. We got 100 miles from Home and it started doing the same thing! Please advise. Thanks!

    Hey guys. So my wife's 2007 328xi has 150K on it. I've been pretty lucky in that other than normal maintenance (oil, brakes, tires, plugs) all ive really had to replace was a cam shaft sensor once back in 2012. Now for about 2 months, she has been saying that once in a while she will be...

    So, about 4 months a ago I bought a used 2003 530i for $8700 cash from a small dealer here in Houston Texas. This was my first BMW and I used to drive a Honda civic before so I bought the car right there. Well at first the only problem I noticed was a twisted passenger seat. So i Googled up a...
