    E90 oxygen sensor issues

    Thanks for the reply Glenn I've looked and cannot find any obvious leak, unless it's the CCV. I've checked the CCV hoses and all seem intact ( as far as I can see without removing the intake manifold). Should I be looking at replacing the CCV kit? The car has done 150k The engine runs very smooth however, cold and warm

    E90 oxygen sensor issues

    Hi all I used to get 2CA2 AND 2CA3 codes on my N46B20 e90 so I changed both pre cat oxygen sensors (it was a lot easier than I expected). Now with the new sensors I don't get those codes any more but I get couple of new codes. I'm getting 2C45 and 2C46. Also sometimes getting 2D11 and 2D12. Never used to get these codes before replacing the sensors While I was replacing the pre cat sensors, I unplugged the post cat ones and gave the plugs a clean with contact cleaner The new sensors were Bosch ones Anyone had similar issues? Any help is appropriated Thanks

    E46 318ti - ABS module options ?

    I know its few years but do you know if the part number has to be an exact match? all units that I can find on eBay, have a different part number to mine (the last two digits are different) thanks
  5. Hi all Having the infamous trifecta lights coming up First time came up a year ago and went away till recently. Now the lights stay on Scanning the module I get 5DF5 internal failure. I took the abs module out and resolderred all the points that I could, made no difference I have heard a wheel sensor could also throw this fault, when I scan and read the data, they seem ok and I get individual wheel speed, as well as the steering angle reading Also, sometimes the lights come on after few hundreds meters of driving in which case the abs actually works when I slam on the brakes, Could this be anything other than the module? Also if going down the path of a new module, does it have to be exact same part number? There are a lot of Ate units on ebay but they all have different numbers. Mine is a Ate asc unit, 6759075 on the controller and 6759073 on the pump. I know I have to program the Vin number but not sure if the part numbers have to be exact match or not Any help will be appreciated Thanks

    E46, N42B20 TDC Lock location

    True I've just finished putting it back together and test driven it, all seems ok. will have to give it few Ks to see how it goes, seems ok for now ended up changing the valve stem seals, timing chain and tensioner/guide and bottom hose on the CCV (was left from when i changed the CCV as i was supplied with the wrong bottom hose) I think this is enough preventative maintenance for the car considering the age and KMs Thanks for your helps/comments

    E46, N42B20 TDC Lock location

    Hi Nathan I have had a scan through your thread, Wow and I can feel your pain, what a bummer I will attempt on replacing the chain, tensioner and guide. I will be looking for the little tool to undo the central bolt on the crankshaft, or is it ok to undo it only by locking the flywheel? While I have her opened up, any suggestions on anything else to do. I had replaced the CCV few months ago but was supplied the wrong hose where it connects to dipstick, now that I have the correct one, I will replace it at the same time She has been consuming some oil, it has gotten worse and lately was drinking around a liter of oil every 500k, She had also started making some noise only on slight load Ali

    E46, N42B20 TDC Lock location

    Thanks Glenn, You are a legend My next question would have been the torque settings which is already in the diagram The item 1 in the diagram, I've read that it is under the starter motor. can i get to it from under the car or do i have to remove the inlet manifold to get to it? thanks

    E46, N42B20 TDC Lock location

    Hi all I'm in the middle of replacing valve stem seals on my e46 N42B20 engine. So far things have gone ok, I have replaced 12 out of 16 seals Soon I will have to put it back together and set the timing. I am looking for the location of flywheel lock pin. I've got a tool set for timing which includes the cam shafts locking brackets and flywheel locking pin but having hard time finding the location, any help will be appreciated While I am at it, i am thinking about replacing the chain, tensioner etc, when i got to the chain, the top plastic cover/guide for the chain was broken into 3-4 pieces which make me wonder if the chain had jumped a tooth. lately the engine has been very hesitant when accelerating. Any tips will be highly appreciated, what are the symptoms of incorrect timing? Thanks in advance

    E90 white smoke advice

    The CCV hoses looked ok but could it be the oil separator valve itself?
