It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.

Sounds to me like roll bar links/ bushes or trailing arm bushes had it on mine turned out to be trailing arm bush about 20 quid if you can fit it yourself.

Sounds like one of your right rear caliper bolts may be loose/ missing. Start there by jacking the right rear and removing the wheel. Otherwise look for rear suspension problems like broken sway bar links.

The engine is an E 36 and the is a loud ticking noise coming from the right side front of the engine where the alum cover is in the front it goes away at some higher rpm's but is there on startup and idle...


Not sure of the motor. Assume you are talking about a BMW E36 (325, 358, 318 etc.) What you are probably describing is a valve tap. Sort of a ticking sound not a bang bang bang right? If this is the case you need to have your valves adjusted. Not really a job for a weekend warrior but a search on the car forums may let you decide if this is a job you want to tackle.

BMW CUTS OUT
A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.
