Possibly it needs a new timing chain tensioner.

To do it yourself, I think you'd need a Bentley (or similar) manual.

Im in a 92 325i auto,,,recently imported... and im getting a noise that sounds like there's something rattling around in my engine...mostly towards the drivers side. I've noticed that shifting is choppy in my tranny in lower speeds/rpms so im changing the sparks plugs/oil/O2 sensor today...any ideas while ive got the hood up and the car in the air??
