After i put in my new m3 flywheel and clutch. I have this ticking noise coming from my engine after i drive my car around and use the clutch awhile and come to a stop and release my clutch the ticking noise begins when i push in my clutch it stops so i don't know what is causing this. I have a 1992 325i. If you know what is causing this or if it is a problem please let me know. Kevin

my guess would be T/O Bearing. Did you install the kit?

THere is an issue with "chatter" when doing this swap. I've read that it isnt anything to be worried about mchanically wise, but it is very annoying. I havent come across a fix either, perhaps someone else can shed more light for you

Did you install an OE dual mass flywheel or a single mass lightweight flywheel? A lightweight flywheel will chatter in neutral. The only fix is to get custom software to raise the idle speed. Typically the chatter magically disappears at 1100 RPMs. My personal fix is to always be in motion and WOT.

I think it is a single mass. I got it from AA tuning. The only one they had. Where can i get the software? Or is it one of those things that i should just get use to it and don't worry about it?

No expert myself, but isn't a 1100 RPM idle really high? Isn't it normally like 500 RPM?

Normal Idel is from 6-7.5 .... If you got it installed at a performance place... return and ask... and see what they can do... its their problem... you paid money.

Yeah, it's a little high for a BMW. I've seen lots of non-BMW vehicles with idles of just over 1k, though. Norm should be ~700 RPM for a BMW.
