In other news, so much for the 70 deg F threshold theory, the SES light was out again when I drove to work this morning.



I think the car knows I'm thinking of trading it.

interesting thread when i come back here for a DIY search.

while just my alternator dead... remove the old alternator which struggle for a certain period of time because lack of proper tools, by carefully inspecting other mechnicial parts, i've found the steerling pump is leaking also but not too serious...

mine is a 2000' E46 318ci right hand drive model. driving this baby on the past 10years.
mileage reach 180,000km have been done a hell lot of DIY.

" i bet i might sell this bady...."
since it has almost reach is 2/3 of it's lifespan while german cars usually last for 300,000km before scraped.

I've learn so much from e46fanatics. thanks all e46 buddies.

Nope, still here! And I'll have you know I decided to try and fix/keep it for a little while longer, at least.

I'm sure it is. Well, I still haven't solved it. I replaced the vanos seals, all of the intake boots, head cover/spark plug gaskets. Now I have the same problems, but slightly better throttle response.

But now the kicker is a new job downtown, and my girlfriend is getting a new car, leaving her old one (a 140k Chevy Prizm) for a beater I can use if I really need it.

So, as noted here in its own thread, http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=787821, my car is for sale on eBay.

See ya'll thanks for all the help over the last 51,000 miles.
