    Hello, I have been having a nightmare in finding the source of a whining noise that is coming from my 318d M sport. I can't figure out where. Brought it to a garage and they kept looking at each other. Lol I have changed the belt Taken the belt out and started the car Check all the pulley to...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Guys I have noticed a strange whining when trying to accelerate on my e93 335i. I've noticed this when the car is in D2 or M2. You can't hear it at higher speeds as such( or at least I haven't noticed). I get a feeling of turbo delay but I havent tested it thoroughly enough. I have also...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My sons X3 has over 200k miles on it and has developed an intermittent and very loud high pitched whining sound coming from the engine area somewhere. It was very intermittent until he had the oil/filter changed (at CarX not at the dealer) and the very day he had the oil change it seems to have...

    1999 M3 manual Not turbo or supercharged. I just replaced the water pump(metal impellers), thermostat, radiator and radiator hoses. Also I replaced my fan with the euro one, I got this kit (https://www.ecstuning.com/b-assembled-by-ecs-parts/european-fan-kit/11522243303kt/). After I finished...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Morning All. Almost immediately after getting our CPO 2014 328i (M Sport) home, my wife noticed (from inside the cabin w/ radio off) an odd sound when the car reversed out of our garage (watch / listen to the video linked below). https://youtu.be/D0axCS0XiiI After reading up a bit on similar...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, So I was taking my e92 320d M Sport for a nice spirited Sunday drive down some country lanes earlier today when I noticed a clinking/whining/grinding noise in 6th gear, I was doing around 60 at the time and it seemed to be speed dependant as to how loud it got. Once I realised that the...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've been chasing a whining noise my 97 540i m62 has been making for a while. Symptom description The higher the RPM's the "faster" the "whine" sounds. The sound can be compared to a cheap remote control car sound but not so high pitched. or a Whining Transmission. At idle you cant hear it but...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    From what ive seen here so far I cant find much on my 2003 525i. I have a few questions. I know I have a valve cover oil leak, so any tips and or threads that could help me there would be appreciated. Ive also heard and figure I might as well replace the timing chain while I was at it and then I...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Recently I am hearing slightly louder whining noise from the rear diff on my 2007 X3 with 105K miles on the clock. A question to all you specialists in the forum... Is this an indication of "go and check it"? And more importantly is it from the diff or something else. Just FYI: recently my...
  10. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi guys, Hope someone here might be able to tell me what the hell the noise I started hearing 3 days ago is. I haven't been able to get a 'good' audio recording of it before, but finally managed something last night and this morning. As mentioned, the whine/noise started about 3 days ago, and...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1997 328i that has been making a strange whining noise for some time now. I replaced the power steering pump in late November and I've noticed it ever since. It's not too bad, but increases as the engine spins up. What leads me to believe it is from the power steering is the fact that...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have this whirring noise that comes from behind the dash. It seems to really be present on cold mornings. It only lasts for a few minutes and then goes away. It isn't a squeal or a grinding noise. It is more of a whine or a whir. Any ideas? I have had a code pulled that said I had a...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have started noticing in my 2010 BMW 335i Coupe (usually on hot days) that a fan comes on and stays on for about 5 minutes, the frequency of the fan coming on varies by how hot the day is. The thing that is bothering me is the whining noise that the fan makes, any ideas ?
