The power steering pump is on the way out unfortunately........the pump runs off a fan belt that runs off the crankshaft....as the engine turns faster (higher revs), the higher revs the pump pulley makes, and the faster it pumps......however if there is an internal leakage, then the pump will be less efficient at low revs....

I hope this helps

Why bmw 2006 318 wont turn over


no gas, weak battery, crankshaft or camshaft sensor is bad, fuel pump bad, fuel pump relay or fuse is bad, haven't pushed clutch down far enough(rug caught underneath), fuel filter clogged, ignition coils bad. You need to give a hint as to what you have tried. Does it crank but not start/ Does it simply click(starter) and not crank/

How do i change my electric window switch on my 2006 bmw 318 ci


Remove the switch assembly (they just pop right off), unplug it and put the new one on. You'll probably need to take it to a dealership to program the new switch into the body control module.

The switch assembly is the panel with all the buttons on it. Just look for an edge and gently pry.

Bmw compact s reg. noisy when turning steering


Look inside the reservoir while the car is running and see if it is low. If it is turn the car off and add power steering fluid. You can purchase at a gas station or parts house. Some people use transmission fluid but it is not a good Idea because it can cetch on fire if you have leak in your power steering system. You can look for leaks when you have someone steer the car fom side to side. Make sure you turn the wheel tight so the whinng is at it's loudest. Check your power steering hoses and rack and pinion,etc. Hope this helps leave a comment.

Where is the location of fuel filter on a bmw 325 ci


Hi, The fuel filter is located at the entry of the gasoline tank. It filters fuel that is incoming. If you notice, unlike other cars where you can siphon fuel from the tank outside, you cannot in this bmw model because the fuel filter will block the siphoning tube. It is located just below the cover and entry into the fuel tank.
Thanks,
