Loud air sound on accelleration

One possibility is that a air intake duct has come disconnected from the intake manifold.
Good Luck.

I have a BMW E46 318 series, Whenever I Start the car and I use the car immediately, The machine shakes and no power, After a while the machine stabilized. Thanks, Allan

you did not state the yr of your model. A very typical problem in early e46 engines were in the Vanos. Does the car stutter or stall in cold weather starts? Does it hold it's idle? How is the power? DO you suffer power loss below 3000 rpm? These problems are related to a Vanos problem.....

Hydrolic Valve Lifters.(Vanos) Replacing


The lifters can be cleaned by getting the engine nice and hot and then adding an engine flush to the oil and leaving the engine running at a high tickover for about 15 to 20 minutes, and then giving the car an oil and filter change.

Are you sure its the tappets and not the timing chain?
