I have a 318i 1999 m it has a knocking/rattling noise when u rev above 3000 or accelerate. but when it drives no noise at all until u push down to overtake or speed off is the noise there. please...


Hi quintincoetz,

If your noise is a ratlling noise, more like a chain top end noise, then I would recommend first checking your oil level and condition. If the oil level is ok, you can remove the oil cap while the engine is running and look for oil lubrication on the valve train. It will probably splatter out a little. The most common cause of the noise is a failing timing chain tensioner. It allows the chain to have too much slack and slap against the guild rails. The tensioner is not too hard to replace and not very expensive either. If you have more than 100k miles, it is recommended to replace anyways. If your noise is more low pitched and more like a knock, I would recommend having a technician look at further.

1985 318I bmw idle is high what do I need to do


A high idle could be due to many things but a major cause is a vacuum leak causing too much air to enter the fuel system which in turn causes the computer to overcompensate with fuel. Take it to an auto parts chain store where they will do a diagnostic scan for free and see if any error codes are present.

Just want to find out...does bmw 318i e36 have a timing belt or timing chain?


There are 2 engines used on the 318i. One has a chain the other a belt. The M40B18(1990-1993) uses a cam belt and the M43B18(1993-1998) a chain.
