  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I lack a lot of info, but I'll do my best. My brother has a 2008/09 x3, there's been oil leaks and he had 2 gaskets replaced at different times. Now there's olddd oil, and new(?) or newish oil. Looking for easiest+cheapest way to diagnose if there's a problem now. Can't afford compression test...

    Need help from my fellow community members! I occasionally get powertrain malfunction with FC 120308 due to low boost pressure. The code disappars once engine is turned off, but comes back when heavily accelarating the vehicle. There is also some flatter noise from exhaust when starting the...

    Hello BMW Fams, This is my first post so please be gentle. I'm planning to buy a CPO X3 2018/2019 and have drilled down to 3 cars that are as follows.

  5. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hello! I had my windshield replaced in my 2013 X3 and now my auto sensor wiper and intermittent wipers don't work. I had my mechanic look at it and they can't seem to find an issue with the mechanism itself or the connections. Has anyone had the same issue and how did you address it? Is it easy...
  6. X3 Hybrid
    My BMW was purchased 2/2018 at BMW West in Houston, TX. I’ve been informed I have excessive wear & tear on outside of front right run-flat tire (5/18/21). I have about 12,000 miles on this 3 yr old automobile. In 2018, right rear run-flat tire had to be replaced (after 6 months of driving). I’m...
  7. X Series
    Hey guys! I’m new here :) I just got my X3 back from the shop less than two weeks ago after an a month long stay in the body shop. My car was parked in a parking lot and was hit on the rear driver’s side. It probably has no correlation, but I feel like it is worth mentioning due to the fact that...

    I heard a sound from the right rear side of the car while driving on the highway and didn't make much of it. On parking, saw that the fuel flap door of my Alpine white X3 had fallen off. The fuel latch system and cap were all intact. Seems like a major design issue as there is no screw or...
  9. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    We have a 2007 X3 and I had to replace the battery. Not paying dealership absurd prices for a car I'm going to get rid of the moment I can get it paid off. So I got a Duralast H8 battery from Autozone and swapped it out myself. Didn't realize I needed to keep some power connected to maintain...
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, I've either hit jackpot or learned a very expensive lesson. I'm about to pick up this 2008 X3 E83 2.0 Diesel from the auction site and wanted a heads up from you guys about the possible repairs needed. The condition report also noted that the engine was 'noisy'. I've read a few...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I found this 2008 BMW X3 3.0SI, and I love it. Took it for a test drive and I didn't notice anything wrong with how it sounded or drove. I'm not a car guy, so I don't have much of a clue about if it's doing well mechanically or not. Can you guys help me out? I've been researching common issues...
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Seems like the battery is dead, but I tried jumping it, and not even the lights on the dash come on. Any suggestions?
  13. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Greetings, One rainy day my '05 X3 2.5i w/ manual transmission started making an aspirated sputtering sound in the 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd gears between 1k and 3k rpm. It sounds like a much lower pitched car from the Jetson's cartoon.The sound is dependent on rpms but stays the same if the...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum...Seth, in Cazenovia, NY. I have an 2008 X3 with what appears to be a bad light control module (LCM). I've ordered a replacement and the PASoft scanner and software, but the latter will probably not arrive for weeks. Long shot, I know, but just checking to...

    Hello everyone, I’d really appreciate some inputs on my x3 2.0D model may 2007 So I have been having this problem with starting. First start of the day is unsuccessful. Either it takes too long to start or i have to push start it. After that it’s fine for the day. After 12-18 hours gap this...

    I replaced my battery recently and the AutoZone employee said it may affect my ECU. Since the battery swap, my dash lights "BRAKE" and "4x4" have both been on - NO "ABS" light on, though. When I start the vehicle in the cold and try to make a hard slow turn (u-turn) I get a weird lurching...

    I just replaced the transfer case actuator on my 2006 X3 hoping it would resolve the tranny problems. When I did remove it, some oil did come out but only drops so I'm assuming there should be enough oil in it. I also tried a "transmission reset" where you hold the accelerator for a minute when...
  18. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2010 X3, 85K miles, not up shifting correctly at 2500 RPM upon acceleration. When I get up to 2500 RPM and the car tries to up shift the car stalls/jerks, RPM's kick up to 3000 and then down to 2000. On acceleration from a stop the issue is worse, where the car looses power for an extended...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all (please read) Our story begins 5 months ago when i bought my X3 3.0 Xdrive (M54) for $2500. I knew it had a bad CSB and u joint but the engine ran great aside from EVAP codes and lean bank codes (vacuum leaks that were soon fixed). I replaced the staked in ujoint, CSB, and guibo for a...
