perhaps some water condensation in the empty tank that then caused the smoke and shaking during warming up.

Refill with good branded Diesel a full tank and have a drive for 30 mins possibly warming at high revs (or low gear to warm faster)

How do I set the timing on a bmw 320d e46 2002 model

If you are assembling the engine you must have a shop manual to provide torque values, etc. I expect it has the timing procedure. If you don't have one, I highly recommend you buy one because if you mess up the cam timing you will have wasted much work and $.

Bmw diesel wont start

I'm guessing that you got an air lock in your fuel system as a result of your changing the fuel filter... I certainly don't know about a BMW diesel, but in most semi-truck engines, there is a priming pump just for the purpose of getting the air out ... and the fuel into.... the fuel system. I've even been known to fill the filters with diesel fuel before screwing them onto the base.. This is risky because of the possibility of allowing some foreign, unfiltered debris to get into your pump and/or injectors, just because of your putting unfiltered fuel into your filter... Check and see if there is some kind of priming pump close to the filter. Also, a possibility is that you may have an electric fuel pump.... as to where all you may need to do is loosen a fuel fitting on the pressure side of the pump and filter.... and allow the electric pump to purge the system of air.. I confess to my lack of knowledge on your BMW.... but, I do have some basic understanding of most diesel systems... Good luck..

How do i set the pump timing on a 320d bmw?

Its a common rail pump. No need to time it. Only serves as a high pressure pump. Timing achieved via ecu switched injectors.

Bmw 320d problems

Diesels can use lots of fuel mainly when the injectors and/ or pump need reconditioning. When the air filter is dirty and needs changing. When the accelerator doesnt' go to full throttle on the stop setting but has clearance to the stop screw. When the engine oil is too heavy from not being changed often enough. When the fuel filters need changing

My bmw 320d e46 have a smoking problem a lot of white smoke when I start my car

you are using the incorrect type of fuel whenever i go to the pump use the 91 or the highest grade of fuel availible because it has a chemical that allows the engine to burn gas at a low emmision level.
