Question about 2003 BMW 325

2 Answers

I have 320i - 2003 model , Engine E46. The problem is that the car has no good power when you accelerate plus it smokes heavily when you press accelerator or high rave. Car travelled Kilometers is 59,000. What is worrying most is the heavy smoking at the exhaust. What could be the problem?

Might not be head gasket. Could also be worn piston rings or valve guides, both leak oil causing smoke and are expensive. OR much cheaper is to get the exhaust gas recirculation system checked out. Clogged breather pipes etc upset the engine management and can cause smoke and bad running. BM forums have lots of experts that I have obtained lots of detailed info for my car in the past. Best of luck.

Good day i have n e46 320i car is smoking and useing oil


do a compression test and see what compression you have to check to see if its piston rings or valves.or valve seals, it's more likely to be the valve seals as they are prone to fail over time. video on changing valve stem seals https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM9KXEw_Wd8. also check these as well as they are prone to leak as well
Rocker cover gasket
Ol filter housing
CCV pipe
You have to remove the aluminium support tracy at the bottom of the engine so you can see where its coming from.

Why does vvti engine SMOKING HEAVILY 135000kms .1.6 verso. is this common?


if its black smoke then its a fuel problem too much fuel the car can`t burn it . could be fuel injector over fueling. if its white smoke then its burning coolant, there is a head gasket problem that is damaged in the cyl #3 area. it could also be a bad valve guide/valve seal, oil rings, compression rings. you don`t say what colour the smoke is.
