The BMW M44 is a DOHC 16-valve Straight-4 Piston engine. It replaced BMW's previous Multi-valve four-cylinder, the BMW M42 and was related to the lesser 8-valve BMW M43. The engine had slightly more power and torque than the M42B18 it replaced to cope with the increased weight of the E36 BMW 3 Series over the E30 BMW 3 Series.
