I'm new on here and have had my 2004 320d for approx 6 months.
It's never been running right since I bought it but now I'm out of ideas and need some help please. Yesterday, I had what I thought would make a difference done to the car, it was my final idea of what could be wrong with the engine but it didn't make a difference. I had the the swirl flaps capped off, hoses replaced, Oil & filter change, new air filter, had it plugged into the diagnostics checked and the engine management light went off (for about a minute and a half!) And I think that was it.
Now, I am going to buy a turbo cleaner today to put into the fuel but if this doesn't make a difference, does anyone have any clue why my car doesn't want to go anywhere until just under 3000 rpm.
Also, it sounds like the loudest and most 'tappety' engine I've ever heard. I would love to fix the car but at this moment in time I'm starting to give up on it and I don't want this. Sorry it's a bit vague, if you need any more info, please ask
Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance! :-)
