trouble code help

i've got a 2002 330i; have an intermittent fault code p0444, whicjh appears to be associated with the leak detection pump or the purge valve. seems to be OK at cold temps (cold for florida, anyway), happens more often when temp warms up (above 70-75 degress).

any thoughts on how to check whether it is the leak detection pump, or just the hose connections? where is the purge valve?

Cool Bmw 328ci 2000 Fauty P1582 Throttle Position Sensor

Hi dear, I've got a big huge problem, the car was running fine, the on the morning I start it up and the DSC light and EML light came on, I did call the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) :P they arrived and plug that old pc and told me some kind of p1582 fauty also known as throttle position sensor, I'm trying to find the piece of cake for days and cannot find it at no where, I'm not sure with could be a crankshaft bla bla bla! I'm might buy this tps sensor when I find it or can I waste my money on it, it could the the crank ***?? when can I find it on my car, few forums saying that it supposed to be under the air filter, I tryied hard but couldn't find it! please same one give a help!

if it threw the code for that, then more then likely thats the part you need to change.

I tried to search Realoem.com for the part, but cannot find it. The e46 is fly by wire, so theres no throttle cable, so a thorttle position sensor..would almost seem pointless since its all intergrated in the electronics.

BUT.....anyone else?
