My Ride: BMW 325xi
vibration when D or R, vibration at speed when you press gas, vibration cold motor???

I watched a lot of topics on the forum and decided to write how I solved all my problems with my BMW 325 xi 2003, mileage 160 000 km (100 000m). I apologize for my English, but if anyone can help I will be happy.
1.If you have a vibration motor start up and a minute later it disappears - check the compression in the cylinders (only on a cold engine) and you'll see that one of the cylinders is much smaller. Just when they begin to work the lambda probes - they equalize engine performance and vibration disappears, due to what there is no error on the computer. In this situation it is necessary to repair the engine, or simply change the engine or do not pay attention to it (as I do)
2. if there was vibration when you stand on the D or R, or when you drive and hit the gas also appears vibration, and when let go the gas pedal - disappears - 99% of this - front axis, i change both (just do not take Chinese or used). I solved this problem 4 months and has changed almost every part of the bottom of the machine, but they provided only for a short time. But it's also worth checking shafts transfer case (should not be backlash). Another check slay because of the heavy engine in the carwent "glasses" and I had to "robot" to put the glasses on their site and install the spacer.

on bad pictures at the bottom you can see the wear on the axis (marked in red), and also spaser

If you have questions - ask
