Question about 2001 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

2001 BMW 325i Rattling / vibrating and iddle drop at 2000 RPM and 40 MPH

I have a 325ci with automatic transmission. It runs perfectly, both engine and transmission (does not feel that it has 147,000 miles). BUT, when driving at constant speed, with trani in Drive position, at about 40 MPH and engine at about 2000 RPM, after 0.5 miles or longer, the car begins to rattle / vibrate for 2 seconds, goes away, comes back, goes away, comes back. I placed the the trani in Sport Drive, and the rattle / vibration comes on at 50 MPH and 2000 RPM. Again, it runs like new, outside of these matching conditions (2000 RPM, 40-50 mph). ANY IDEEAS???????????????

SOURCE: steering wheel starts to vibrate at 55 mph

i would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!

My 1994 bmw 325i wont go over 20 mph,.


I would run some engine diagnostic tests to determine if it is an engine problem. Then I would aim to look at the transmission system. This also involves looking into the transmission's computer. You need to take it to a shop that has a scan tool that can scan the transmission control system. A lot of the BMW have advanved logic in the computer and the average shop will not have the tool. You will probably have to take it to a bimmer dealer.
