1999 BMW 318 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 122009

318 i 1.9L

  • Manual transmission
  • 101,000 miles

i own a 1999 318i with M43 8 valve chain drive engine with 101,000 miles on, at 3000 rpm there is a definite rattle, from idle to2,500 rpm the engine is smooth and quiet, i have changed all the hydraulic lifters and rocker arms, also fitted a new oil spray bar, plus new timing chain and tensioners, but no change. i have been told it's piston slap or big end bearings but i'm not convinced as its had full bmw service history .
