Angry E53 3.0d 2006 problems

Hello guys! I have two big problems with my 06' E53 3.0d auto 218hp :
1. When i'm driving between 30-80km/h i hear a strange noise from the back side like the wheels are getting blocked,like the tyres crawls on the road,but it's just for one second,If i take the the foot from the gas pedal it's disapear. I think it's more frequently on the hill,but it's happen also on the straight road. I checked with inpa/ista i have no errors,on the dash still no errors.
2. The second problem it's the running direction,the steering wheen it's standing straight but the car it's going to the right side,i made many times the aligniament,the tyres look good,i checked everything like arms bushes rods many new parts,new suspension,new wheel bearing,many many new parts and the running direction still go to the right side.
Any sugestions what to check more??

E53 3.0d 2006 problems

How many miles?

Sudden change in steering wheel angle is often the front control arm on the rear axle.

I just replaced all my control arms and got a pro alignment by the best guys in town and two weeks later I need to steer right to drive straight.

You can correct that yourself by doing a symmertic adjustment on your tie rods.

Count partial turns eg turn 1/3 each side the same way then test drive and repeat.

The strange sound sounds like the subframe bushings.

It sounds like a "hiccup" in the drive train like power shuts off and resumes and will happen most often on bumps going up hill. You should also notice thud when shifting from reverse to forward under power. Eg don't stop; shift from rev to fwd while coasting slowly backwards.

The car have on the dash 285k km,i have changed the rear subframe bushing all 7pcs,rear ball joints,rear arms,all brake pads and rotors,brake calipers,complete suspension front and rear,front arms,all wheel bearings,gearbox mount,steering rods,front arm bushings etc..in the back i hear sometimes between 30-80km/h like a buzz noise with little vibration in the back,it's happen only when i'm driving in the city with constant acceleration,If i'm driving with brutal acceleration i have no sounds..few days ago i disconnected the abs switch and the car was making this buzz only when i'm turning to left and push middle or hard acceleration,but the noise was more pronounced in this case,but If i turning right and push the acceleration was no noise making..

Is the circumference of all tires correct and equal?

Left turning sounds often means getting drive draft so if just odd vibration vs. snap points to guibo.

Under power vibration from rear suggests center support bearing (csb).

Save those: wheel weight or a "dead on arrival" part.

You changed the rear actual ball joints that need to be pressed out with a special tool?

Oh: I didn't see CV axles in your comprehensive list.

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vibrat...o/id1089589547

Use an app such as this to measure the speed of the vibration.

With math you can determine if it's drive train and where. Tires should be 2.225m circumference, divide into speed to determine Hz.

Example if you get 3x wheel Hz it's very likely the inner CV joint with the three lobes.

If you have >235mm tires, swap one at a time with the spare that is 235 and test you can determine which corner is the culprit by preloading the ball joints the opposite way. (best way to confirm a bad wheel bearing)

Yes i have good tyres 255 50 r19 front 285 45 r19 rear,ball joints already changed front and rear,the wheel bearing are new all 4,the cv axles joints don't play...the noise it's coming from the right rear and sometimes from front left,but on the front it's not so loud,and when i have this sound it's cut a little bit from acceleration,but it's not continous noise,it's not permanent,my mechanic think the problem it's coming from rear differential,but If start drive with hard acceleration i don't hear any noise,it's making only when i driving normal with constant speed in the city...it's a noise like the tyres are crawls on the asphalt...the mechanic checked the wheel speed sensor and he didn't see big diferences between the wheels. I checked with inpa/ista+ and no errors,only sometimes i find error "electronic brake distribution" but how i know this is a specific error and don't have specific symptoms...

Didn't you say you disabled abs? If not, do so and drive how/where you get the symptom to present itself.

You want to exclude abs from being the cause but if you are saying you got a brake distribution message it's pretty likely.

I had a wheel sensor get loose and cause abs too kick on when it made no sense.

Did you replace any wheel sensors? I damaged one when changing wife's rear bearing just from hitting suspension parts with a hammer not even near the sensor.

It didn't break outright it would just randomly kick on abs.

I bought an AIP brand for $15 and problem went away forever

Yes i wrote you up,few days ago my mechanic disconnected the abs pump connector to see how the car it's driving,the car was running good just with one problem : when i start driving and turning left and push acceleration i got buzzing/vibration from the rear left side of the car,and i was feeling like rear wheels get blocked and crowl on the asphalt,If i turning right and push the acceleration no symptoms.
I didn't changed any wheel speed sensor,my mechanic checked the wheel speed in a test drive with me,everything was looking ok,no errors coming from the abs/dsc system,szl sensor looking good,just the yaw sensor he didn't find where to calibrate it,in the diagnostic tool it's showing the yaw sensor value but he didn't find from where to calibrate it.

When I had my wheel sensors go bad they worked find to test. They just would send incorrect signsl some times. That's the printer suspect. Pull the abs fuse or unplug a wheel sensor. If I'm correct the problem will go away.

The "tone ring" for abs is built into the bearing and can also be the source of this issue.

Often the wheel speed sensor favors a particular bearing and when you change the bearing suddenly hiccups in DSC.

Happened to me and wife

E53 3.0d 2006 problems

Back to Mechanical possibilities: I would look at guibo and csb.
