Default San Jose CA 318ti Owner - Intro

What's going on 318ti community. I have had an e30 for 10 years (s50 swap and legal in Cali), and I have a Daytona Violet M3. Now I have a 318ti and wonder why I did not get one sooner. Glad to be here. Now I am going straight to the tech section because I have a crazy leak/burn of oil in my 318ti that I cannot figure out. Hi again!

Welcome. You might want to look at your oil filter housing gasket and the bushing that goes with it. It leaks pretty bad and can be confusing as to where the leak is coming from. Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey

I thought about the oil filter gasket - but it may be a bit more than just that. Over 3.5k rpm, I get this oscillating rattle feel in the acceleration pedal. I drove another 318ti (95 OBD1) and did not get that. I think there is something else going on - maybe in the CCV system - not just oil filter gasket.

Oil filter gasket and filter housing gasket/bushing are two completely different things. The housing gasket and bushing are notorious for leaking and in some cases, have actually looked like an oil pan leak when it wasn't.

that's definitely where I'm going to start. But what can explain that weird vibration over 3500 RPM? Is there a Vanos in this motor?

No VANOS on either the M42 or M44 engine.

Vibration? Like engine cutting out or vibration from the suspension?

If engine, I had my Wifes's M44 cutting out at >3500 RPM and it turned out to be a Crankshaft Position Sensor. Not sure if that is your issue. The codes reflected my issue as well. Good luck.

Basically, a rattle kind of vibration that I can feel through my foot coming from the acceleration pedal. It's not a wheel balancing vibration, it is not a control arm vibration at 55 mph while braking, it is not a motor mount vibration at idle and cold, it is a vibration at 3500rpm and above through the accel pedal. Weird.

Oh... And.
