Hi all, first post in these pages,
So I'm trying to sort a noisy engine out!
I've swapped the cam chain tensioner for the upgraded bmw one, and that has stopped the noise on initial startup (like a bag of spanners is in the engine...) but while I had the engine covers off I noticed a big piece of gaffer tape over sensor next to the oil filler cap (which I thought was the cam sensor, but not sure now). Now since replacing the tensioner and messing with the gaffered sensor shes really down on power, especially in lo revs.. I've plugged my scanner up and getting the P0366 cam position sensor B bank 1 CKT range/performance code.
Also I've fitted a used back box today...but cant see how that would have anything to do with it.. Think replacing the sensor will sort it?? They're not cheap so want to make sure..
Ok after a bit of digging i have found that one of the cam sensors is down by the cam chain tensioner, so will check i have not knocked the wiring or something.. Still not sure what the sensor is between to the filler cap and coil pack tho...
Thanks in advance.
