SOURCE: 2000 bmw 323i-shakes and clanking

hey man, i had the same problem with my 325i (clankins sound on cold start-up) i took it to the dealership to have a look they diagnosed it wrong telling me a pulley is cracked and quoted me a ridiculous amount to fix it so, i decided to have a look 4 myself and i found that a pulley was loose the pulley looks similar to that of a cog of a bike it has 1 bolt in the center, that bolt was loose so all i did was tighten it and it solved the clanking sound , give it a shot it might work for you.

SOURCE: warning light on & frequent loss of excelleration power

Check your Mass Air flow sensor. It might be dirty or the connections might be lose.
It looks something like this
now if your vehicle has something similar but with a flapper/door. then check if it is dirty or not opening.
If your vehicle doesnt have any of these then It could be a Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. Go to autozone and check on what it is then we can have a better idea of what is going on. Thanks

2000 echo shuttering when you accelerate

Sounds like an engine misfire.Does the check engine light come on or flash. If so, it may be a spark plug or ignition coil issue. The transmission can also cause a shudder problem. These transmissions are usually rather dependable though.

Loss of power in acceleration

I would check the fuel pressure first.
If the engine was miss-firing the check engine light should be on.

Yellow engine warning light on 02 TDI Jetta

You should get the OBD codes read. This should pinpoint the problem. This light is connected to an emmissions problem. Re setting it will do nothing as it will come back on as soon as the on-board computer re=booths. As you dont have a loss of power,it sounds very like one of the lamda units is faulty, but do the code reading to be sure.
Best of luck with it
