Question about 1999 BMW Z3

1 Answer

When I accelerate quickly in first and second gear I hear a vibration that sounds like it's right under the center console. I think It might be the bushing thing that connects the front part of the drive shaft to the back part. I want to know what's wrong and what would be the easiest fix.

The two most likely causes are a worn front universal joint - a relatively easy fix but probably fairly expensive if done by BMW- or more serious, but lees likely, a worn bushing in the transmission tail-shaft housing. The latter will be more difficult and costly to repair but doesn't happen very often. A worn universal joint is much more likely. Dr.J

When accelerating through the gears as i drive. I get a vibration when i hit second gear. Then when i hit 3rd gear, it feels like it slips and revs around 3,4k rpm, accelerating really slow. When i hit 4th...


sounds like 3rd gear/clutch is worn.I don't think a service will do any good.But if you remove the pan and find debris you know you will need a trans in the near future.

Vibration When Accelerating


Did you machine the flywheel? Because if you replace the clutch without machining the flywheel. The flywheel will have high and low spots on it. The new clutch is perfectly flat, and the old clutch was worn into the flywheel. Thus, vibration! I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes to ya.
