Can't wait to see pics man.

I love the fact that we almost have similar cars in that we both have e46 318 (albeit mine a 316) and K11 Micras which technically aren't actually our cars but we do look after them so are part of the fleet.

Okay, battery back on and the car starts happily. It continues to rev slightly unsteadily at idle but is okay at any other level. 

 

Oddly the EML is on which it wasn't before.

 

I took pictures of the engine bay but they haven't stayed on the camera, I took some on the phone just in case. There are 3 small bore rubber hoses on something at the front of the engine, they are all perished. I'll try and show this on the picture if I can. Thingy encircled in red. 

 

There is a fine mist of burning oil at the rear of the engine, I am presuming this might be a result of a split CCV/PCV hose. Area is highlighted by the red dots.

Do not scrap this FFS. Spend 200 quid on getting it MOT'd and waft about in it. This is £600 with an MOT. Most E46's are rubbish, this one clearly isn't. It's probably the best car you own and it'll owe you next to fuck all.

THIS. 100%.

Seriously, if you were closer, I'd either buy it or help you fix it. This is the second bargainous estate car I couldn't buy because of distance.

Okay, cooler heads have prevailed. If anyone is able to take the work on at the barn then I am happy to pay a proper rate and so on. 

 

I've also emailed a couple of mobile mechanics and will see what they come back with. 

 

It's been a stressful week or so, apologies folks.

I'm confused though... it's got a slightly lumpy idle, and needs an MOT. Perfectly drivable though?

 

Sounds like a normal old car. :-D

 

Have you taken it for an MOT? Most of the cars I've owned have had a slightly lumpy idle, apart from the Japanese ones. All of the BMWs!

 

Never had an MOT fail for a lumpy idle.

 

Have I missed a vital piece of information? :?

It very narrowly failed its MoT on emissions and a handbrake needing adjustment. A week before the MoT it completed over 700 miles in a week down to and around Cornwall without missing a beat apart from the lumpy idle that disappears as soon as the revs rise about 100 over idle.

Lumpy idle, oil mist from the rear of the engine bay, EML now on and rear brakes (not so bothered by that to be honest).

Might ask my mate to give it a once over re: MOT worthiness, although he isn't a fan of modern stuff.

 

I'd like to try and get the CCV and breather hose done first though, just for peace of mind. Needs an oil change too.

Fuck me, E46's came out in 1998!

 

If there is oil mist - the pipe to the CCV will be split or hanging off. Air leak, idle all to fuck, EML light on. Could be a very cheap fix.

 

BMW handbrakes though.  :-o

It’s pez, but sure the light would go off with reader, it came on for me a couple of times, once when I replaced the lambda sensor and one other with a trim fault, swapped maf and it went away again.

Are you put off getting this fixed and using it because of the badge stuck on the front?

If so I can understand. I don't particularly like Audi's, yet the ones I have do the job pretty well and aren't particularly needy. This allows me to focus on my older cars without worrying about fixing them. They're common enough with cheap parts and readily understood faults that most garages can deal with them without me having to fuck around with them.

I mean if you ignore the badge and concentrate on that it's a rear wheel drive, automatic estate with comfy seats, reasonable economy (probably same/better than your i10?) and decent place to sit, then it appears to be an excellent car for your needs. Just think of that big boot for transporting bits for you Toledo.

Never do any work before an MOT. Just do what they ask you to do once it's failed.

 

If it passes, change the oil.
