I bought 1999 BMW 323i e46 a week ago. Everything is great until 1 day when I'm about to go to work, there's this ticking sound when the car in idle position. the ticking noise will go faster when I hit the gas. I brought it to BMW dealer 2 days ago and they said it's the power steering pump and they said previous owner put weird green liquid in it. Personally, I don't think its power steering pump. Anyone know what's the problem? Help would be much appreciate it.
*I did oil change but it's still there *
You can check the sound on youtube, search for "BMW 323i Engine ticking noise"
dont mean to pester the topic. however, i'm looking into a '99 323i so my concern about this problem is how much the pump costs to replace. any ideas?
