For the first time ever I carried out an oil and filter change on my 320i. I have really had my doubts about BMW dealer servicing and decided to do an oil change myself. :angel: I used Castrol Magneta fully synthetic oil. Since doing the change the engine feels much smoother to rev and is quieter, but more interestingly the clutch action is now silky smooth and feels like it did when the car was new. Prior to this, when the car was cold, the first inch or so of travel, as the clutch pedal came up from the floor, felt sticky and jerky and the pedal felt heavy. This has now disappeared. Could engine oil have an effect on this and if so, how? Does the E46 have a clutch cable and if not how does the clutch work? Thanks!
