    Hi , have you ensured that all of the tyres on the vehicle have roughly the same amount of tread , as this could cause the transfer case to emit noises, regards mark

SOURCE: 2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise

It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

SOURCE: how do I reset the oil service meter on a 2005 bmw x3

On the instrument cluster in the center there are two buttons (clock and s/r) .Press and hold the s/r (i think thats whats on the button) and turn the key to the first position. at first it will say TEST in the cluster. keep holding the s/r button and it will flash to your SIA (service meter) release the button and press and hold until it says reset (or reset flashes) and then press again. just play with it im going off of memory. just dont be afraid. as usual im sure your local bmw dealership would be glad to help

SOURCE: BMW 316i KEEPS STALLING WHEN SLOWING DOWN AT JUNCTIONS

at the engine, there is a small sensor that helps increase or decrease the rpm of the engine. Perhaps yours is soo low, that when you slow down, it's almost about to stop.

The other problem could be the airfilter sensor. If it's not properly fixed or if the sensor itself is a bit damaged, than the engine is not getting enough air and so, let's the engine almost go off.

Please give further details if this has not helped.

thank you

SOURCE: I have a 2004 bmw x3 and I am getting a whining

Check the power steering fluid level. It sound like its low, if its not then have the power steering pump checked.

BMW whine noises 70mph


Hello Robert Anderson,

I always ask the color when my friends are describing their car... and immediately ask the interior color too...
It helps me imagine their following sumptuous description...
Twin-turbos, 8 speed automatic, Walnut grain...
fuzzy DICE... Plastic idols affixed to the dash (etc.)...
all helps in the visualizations

but... for your car I imagine a noise.

Okay... a 70 mph whine usually means the rear end differential gears have gotten out of alignment.

It could mean a few other things... but that is the biggie!

Hope this helps!

BMW X3 transmission


Hi. I would suggest having the transfer case motor actuator checked for a stripped gear. I usually remove the transfer motor actuator and take the cover off to inspect the plastic gear inside. If the gear is stripped, it can be replaced.

Steering makes a whining noise - where is the fluid reservoir?


the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..
