The engine is an E 36 and the is a loud ticking noise coming from the right side front of the engine where the alum cover is in the front it goes away at some higher rpm's but is there on startup and idle...


Not sure of the motor. Assume you are talking about a BMW E36 (325, 358, 318 etc.) What you are probably describing is a valve tap. Sort of a ticking sound not a bang bang bang right? If this is the case you need to have your valves adjusted. Not really a job for a weekend warrior but a search on the car forums may let you decide if this is a job you want to tackle.

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.

318 timing chain setting m42 engine with out bmw tools


Remove the cam cover, remove the spark plugs, turn the engine to number 1 TDC, put a pencil in spark plug hole number one and twist the crank back and forth and make doubly sure you are at TDC. Now loosen the four bolts at the front of each cam sprocket, check TDC again with the pencil and rocking the crank, now take the pencil and lay it across the flats at the back of each cam. Twist the cams very carefully so that the pencil sits flat on each cam square. Snug up the sprocket bolts and use the pencil to check TDC again! Now check the cams again. Repeat the procedure until you have the cams flat and the engine at TDC.

Keys in the boot


Call the RAC, if you want to do it yourself you can smash one of the rear fog/reverse lights, pull out the bulb holder and fish the keys out, a second hand light unit is around £20
