Hi shawn n.

I think that it will be worth while to have the injectors and the ECU checked out by taking the vehicle for a scan.... It sounds like you may have a problem with one or more injectors leaking.... Pull out the dip stick for the engine oil and smell the content.... If there's a smell of petrol with the oil, that will be a good tell tale sign....
..... if not have an auto engineer check the vehicle....I hope not but, maybe it's something more serious.

Best of luck and regards Johngee10

2001 BMW 325i problem: Car runs very rough, but no warning lights


Sounds like a fuel problem , have you changed the fuel filter in a while ? could be the knock sensor or the knock sensor module needs to be replaced.

Cant locate fuel filter


on some it is down behind engine , just lean in looking down by each side back of motor also you can follow the fuel line from intake back to locate it.

My 2004 BMW 325 ci convertible is difficult to start.


If the fuel filter has been replaced, then maybe these are other reasons:

1. intake camshaft sensor (known to go bad on BMW E46s). ~$100 part.

2. fuel injectors (though I doubt they go bad that easily). ~$100/ piece. Your car has 6.

3. Ignition coils. ~$90 a piece. Your car has 6.

4. mass air flow sensor. Again, another expensive part. ~$300.

check the linkage for excessive play if the rubbers are worn out replace them and if you can put the car on the hoist disconnect the linkage under , start the car with another person inside the car to depress the clutch , try each gear at a time to isolate the problem whether its from the transmission or the linkage.

My BMW 325xi started to brake automatically


It sounds like a malfunctioning caliper. Look through your wheels and see if the rotors are bluing (excessive heating).
