brought a black e90 330d that needed TLC. Very shakey on cold start

So i brought another 330d last week in black which needed TLC, i currently have a sparkling graphite one which has NO problems on at all other then the drivers window playing up now and again which im selling as the black one i brought has every extra out of the factory

ive never had a car with front and back sensors before elec heated seats and folding mirrors and all the rest etc so i am very excited to get this 100% on the road. i am using it now and my grey one is up for sale so see the classified section

This black one i brought last week has a strange duck quacking noise coming from the EGR which i have found out to be the pressure converter

Now just on cold starts when i get in it, it shakes like a b!tch but when its warm i get no problems at all, no shaking etc

i know it could be many many things but great thing about the forum is people may have had the same problem and are able to tell me what they done to rectify.

Thanks

Check the codes. Anything related to Valvetronic or the eccentric shaft?

got inpa up on it

error codes are all 6 glowplugs - would this cause the car to have a very very rough idle though?

On cold start mainly, then I would think it would go away. My apologies, I didn't realize it was a D, so I'm not as well versed. It would seem odd that all 6 went at once, maybe a ground issue with the glow plug module? Hopefully someone with better diesel knowledge can chime in.

turns out the shakeyness was all 6 glowplugs as inpa suggested. i read up that wen all 6 come up as faulty on inpa just go direct to the glowplug unit but i thought ill change all 6 instead, turns out this has rectifyed the shakey starts. also changed the pressure converter aswell, car is now running great, no shakeyness, no weird noises at all time for a service now and its ready for the road.




manifold off, its a nightmare as all the plastics have to come off just to get to it. the rear engine cover really p!ssed me off, got it off in the end.



i had oil underneath my manifold, i reckon it could be my bad gaskets? or do you guys think flaps? will be changing gaskets though when i do my flaps. oh i think they are about 50 from dealer aswell



was very surprised how clean my EGR was. saved me a job


thanks for the opinions guys.

Hell yeah man! Nice to see another member who's willing to get his hands dirty. Glad that's all it was man. How bad did the 6 plugs set you back?
