Your mechanic may have unplugged one of the 02 sensors when doing the job and just forgot to plug it in when he was done. I have seen plenty of 02 sensor failures, but rarely a "no activity". The...

If you don't spend a ton of time on the highway or have an exhaust with a crazy drone, the 3.64 M3 diff wouldn't even be that obnoxious with a 5 speed. I love the shorter gear since NA e46s make...

Removing the thermostat is incredibly dumb and you should replace it immediately. It wont hurt the car unless you run it for quite a while, but the motor is made to run at a certain operating...

In my experience, e36s tend to feel faster than e46s, even when they have an identical power/weight ratio. why? my guess would be that the sound deadening is better in e46, e36s are older and tend to...

Unless you have like 3.73 or shorter gears, a 6 speed really doesn't make sense for anything other than gas mileage/highway cruising. Most of the folks who race these cars prefer a 5 speed because...

I think people put too much emphasis on top speed. I went from a 2.93 to a 3.64 (M3) and it would have dropped my top speed to like 142. I put in a 6 speed for more comfortable highway cruising, but...

any codes? how many miles?
check the e46 wiki and look for leaks in the common areas. check your headers to see if there is any sign of oil being burnt on them. Check around the trans and lines as...

The shark injector can only be used once. It would be quite rare for someone to have bought the unit and never install it. Just putting that out there in case you didn't know

you are probably right. When i first posted i thought he meant right when he took his foot off of the clutch. wishful thinking perhaps. pulling the trans sucks, especially on jack stands

the hacksaw method is more civilized for sure. I opted to just set the bushings on fire which seemed to work quite well. Has to be done outside and probably isn't the best for the environment. I...

My first suspicion would be diff mounts, particularly the front ones. It's almost certainly something worn in your driveline, so if it's not the diff mounts, check trans mounts, guibo/flex shaft,...

5k in labor alone would be a miracle. I would guess at least 7k-9k in labor to get it running "like stock". Labor is hard to predict due to the amount of subframe modification required, moving things...

I this only fits 325, no 323, 328, 330. Won't fit 323 or 328 even thought they both have the smaller MAF. Will fit 325ci fine.

you will probably get more help if you post what the peak error codes actually mean. i did a quick search but gave up. People on here are much more familiar with the pXXXX codes.
