My BMW e46 330i makes a loud bang as it goes down


Need much more info. When you say goes down do you mean when it cuts off, when the motor slows to idle speed, when the car body "dips" after running over a bump? As I said need more details.

Screeching sound remains


Your AC pump is starting to faiL. It's starting to bind and putting heavy back pressure on the belt causing it slip and screech. After the car cools off inside, the load on the AC compressor is lower and the sound will die down. Also when the belt gets hot it gets a little more flexible and grippy which also lowers sound.

Take it to an auto AC repair place and have it checked.

A couple of possibilities - first I'd check/replace fuel filter. Then clean MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor and if those don't cure issue then it's TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) replacement time. Check w/BavAuto or Pelican Parts online - both good sources for info & parts

On a cold start, the engine struggles


probably a bad air/flow sensor, try to clean it with sensor cleaner, its by the air intake filter box. if not clean the throttle body really good.

pls vote.

Hi i have a 99 323i e46 i drove it home today and i pushed it to its limit but then the car started to **** and lose power and you could feel the car vibrating inside the cabin. the engine light came on...


Several things but 2 occur to me. did it have ample oil and water, and, did it do this while the rev counter was up high?. The first you can sort, the second, it probably has a rev limiter over which , the engine will not go. Slow it down a bit and it it should be back to normal.

Hyundai Accent intermittent jerking


Revs.
As for the issue of the idle revs, that's perfectly normal. When it's cold outside, every car is supposed to have a higher rev in order to warm up the engine quickly. In more advanced cars, the computer wont even allow the engine to shift into overdrive when it's cold outside in order to avoid extreme engine stress and damage. When it's warm outside, the engine doesn't need to idle high because the engine is already at a good operating temperature. Not much will be needed to get it to the right temperature.
Intermittent Jerking

There is a long list of things that could cause intermittent jerking. I'm going to name all of them for you, but your best best would be to go to a mechanic and have them do an inspection.
Clogged PCV Valve (Possibly if you don't get your oil changes on time, sign of a tune up)
Bad DIstributor Cap (not likely at 140,000 miles)
Clogged fuel filter (Very likely, usually done with tune up)
Bad Fuel Pump (Not so likely)
Defective ECM (also not likely)
Vacuum hoses/leak (not likely but possible)
MAS (Mass Airflow Sensor--not likely but possible)
Fuel INjectors (if so, sign of a needed tune up)
Faulty Spark Plug Wires (not likely if tune up is recent)
Faulty O2 Sensors (possibly)

Clogged Catalytic Converter (Possible)
~Hope this helps
