Might do Carlos....I'm scared of diesel cars now.... ;-) 335D....Mapped... hmmmm...scary....

Now, not trying to sound like I'm making excuses, I did have an engine warning light (power loss, amber light) coming up on my way to the PH meet but after I switched off the engine and turned on again, it disappeared....

I believe that the stealer didn't fix it properly last time.....as they said that they replaced the exhaust solenoid valve and on the diagnosis report it says turbocharger boost pressure too low, however fault does not cause warning lamp....and the last part fo the report says VANOS solenoid valve defective (which has been replaced now), Control unit defective ( they didn't say if they fixed this one) and lines or plug connections defective ( again, they didn't say nothing about fixing those)

Will probably send the car to the dealer again....as the light has come up a few times now....


Hopefully, I'll see you all at the next meet....

Why not get your car to http://www.birdsauto.com/ for a diagnostic check that you know will be done thoroughly. Then any work that needs doing will be apparent for the dealer to carry out under warranty.
