Is the current code still P0335?

Freeze Frame data would be useful.

What tool are you using to read the codes?

So here are some suggestions.

1. You need your OWN OBDII tool. $30 or less for a smart phone App and interface. What smart phone/tablet platform are you running?

2. Where did you get the replacement crank sensor? What brand/store? Really suggest OEM sensors, ESCTuning or bmaparts.com are suggest suppliers. Or you could possibly purchase a sensor from an online dealer but they will likely be slightly higher than other suppliers.

That's likely your problem. $19 crank sensor???

You have not been around here long. With German cars you do not want to cheap out on sensors.

VDO sensor is $90 from ECSTuning, a sensor from on online dealer discounted is $100.

$70-$80 difference, there is likely a reason!

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...rical/Sensors/

You can also use these part pricing tools:

Thank you so much. I have a passion for german cars but I am still studying and trying to learn as much as I can about them. Where else can I get my crankshaft position sensor?

If you look at the pricing tools I provided there are about 20+ suppliers.

You can use www.realoem.com to look up the part number then use the pricing tools to find the cheapest options.

www.oembimmerparts.com
www.bmaparts.com with SPECE30 discount code
www.ecstuning.com

Are all some decent options.

You have to look who has free shipping as well as this may play into the final pricing.

Here is a quick list of many suppliers.

I have to re-edit for the duplicates

Bimmer Bum on ebay
Turner Motor Sports
Autohausaz.com
Bimmerzone.com
Pelican Parts
DDM Tuning
Bav Auto

You ask about fuel pumps, you should read the 2nd link below in my signature.

www.bmaparts.com use SPECE30 discount code and for under $125 you will have a Siemens/VDO pump & sending unit on your doorstep.

Your pump will fail, the car is 10 years old.

You choose will the pump fail on its schedule or will you replace it on your schedule?
