Country: South AfricaMake: BMWModel: 318iYear: 1999
Can I have the last 7 digits of your VIN #
Thank you give me a few moments to look up the information for you.
it's got the plastic intake
Sorry the 1st set of instructions is for an e36 but they are pretty much the same, here are the instructions for the e46.
i overalled my engine and i think my timing is out where should the crank pulley mark be and the camshaft mark be
I just gave you the step by step procedures along with pictures and the special tools needed.
i hae not unfastened the sproket from camshaft
and if i don't have the specail tools
If you don't have the special tools you will not be able to set the timing properly, and could wind up doing internal damage to your engine.
the engine has started but didn't pick up revs
You will need the tools in order to make sure the timing is correct.
and died afterwards
so i'm screwed
It is very possible if the timing was not set properly that you caused internal damage, most likely that you bent valves.
the engine was running smoothly no noise of anykind
Like I said you are going to have to check your timing with the special tools because even if it did not do damage you have sensors for the crankshaft & the camshaft that will be given signals that are incorrect.
thank you helped me alot
