    Help-took my 01 330ci to get emission tested, it failed-misfire. I changed the plugs and insulator coils-still showing misfire. Idles rough to start-warms up and goes away 95%. Why would it misfire with new plugs etc-O2 sensor code-can this cause a misfire if bad? Idle control valve, fuel filter. I just replaced the Oil Filter housing and thought it was running great for 150k. Your thoughts are appreciated as I need to get it to pass so I can license the car here in Atlanta. Tom T

    I just changed both belts on my 01 330ci-but did not really help the "chirping" even though the belts needed replacing. Have 147K on car-noise goes away with acceleration, worst at idle with car in drive (step auto) and foot on brake. Idler Pully? thought tensioners and idler pully were ok, but? thoughts are appreciated.

    I just replaced both belts on my 01 330ci-belt were bad but did not take away chirping at idle-mostly with car in gear with foot on the brake-pullys seemed ok when I changed the belts but? Idler pully? It seemed to really be spinning freely. Any thoughts are really appreciated.
