    I’m currently working on a 2007 328i with 177k miles on it, and there is a quite worrying sound coming from it. It’s not lifter tick, because that comes from the valve cover and I have lifter tick too and I can distinguish the two while it’s running. The sound I’m worried about is coming from...

    Hi everyone, I've got an issue with my 2011 535i: When I close the driver door, I can hear something near the lock or handle clicking/ticking multiple times (maybe 6 times). It could be a soft close issue or actuator or motor, but I wouldn't know exactly without replacing parts on by one, so...

    Hi, my BMW has a gauge problem. As soon as I open the door to my car, the fuel gauge needle starts "jumping." All other gauges are inactive. This last for about 60 seconds, afterwards they all return to normal. This happens every time, regardless of outside temperature. I have researched...

    After not changing my oil for a year/5,000kms I noticed a tapping noise develop in my engine. I drive a 318is coupe with an m44 engine that has done a little over 200,000kms. The tapping noise doesn't happen upon start-up, it doesn't happen in neutral throughout the rev range, it doesn't happen...

    I purchased a 2004 545i about a month ago and it was barely the third day when a ticking noise came up out of the driver side behind the engine or on the side. I took it to a neighborhood mechanic and he said it should be fine. I go on vacation for 2 weeks and when i come back i try to address...

    Hello everyone, i just got me a 2004 E53 4.8is. This is my first V8 car.. i had several BMWs in last 10 years (E30, E34, E39) and E53 was the next logical step hehe. The car is unbelievably powerful, nice interior, nice color, not so thirsty (if you are careful from time to time) BUT i have two...

    Hi, can anyone help me to discover the problem and the solution ? I have a Crackling noise BMW E90 N54 335i on cold start: I really appreciate your feedback.
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So my car has been making this ticking noise. I had it looked at by 2 different mechanics. One said it could be the exhaust manifold, another said it could be the idle air control. The noise is just a odd clicking noise that i can hear when i drive. it ticks in idle, and when i go into gear and...
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    My car sometimes makes a ticking noise when the HVAC is on, never when it is off. With the engine running, the interval between ticks is about 3,5 seconds, with the engine off, the interval is shorter, about 1,5 seconds. I can best feel the tick through my feet and when they are not on the...

    For the reference, This is how I fixed the ticking noise from engine.:rofl: E39 528i M52 1997 build @259000 mi. Symptom: rhythmic ticking noise inside engine bay. Frequency goes with rev. Noise not comes from the belt system. Hear it more clear when I stand on passenger side. High speed runs...

  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, I've got an e39 and recently the engine has been making a ticking noise. I took it into a shop, they quoted me for $4500 parts and labour to fix the timing chain. Is there anything else it could be? I just have a weird feeling its something else. The Techs looking at my car had to Google and...

    My '03 X5 3.0i seems to run great, accelerates like a champ, but the engine does make a ticking noise, and a sound that seems to be vacuum leaking somewhere. Haven't found any compromised hoses yet, and will check the disa later today. I've done a hot oil change to see if it was the lifters, but...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2002 BMW 325i. I am concerned with a "ticking" noise I am hearing come from the engine area. This is ongoing when the engine is on, and it is continuous. I have checked the Oil level and it is fine. Has anyone experienced this before? What is the isse? How can I resolve this? (Vehicle...
  20. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    After over a year worth of thousands of dollars of near-monthly diagnostics, I turn to the online BMW community to help me solve a tapping which has thus far been a complete mystery to all the euro-specialized mechanics who have looked into it. The tapping happens under very specific...
