I've got the head gasket replaced and got full service done and two days later my engine light has come back on and they said it's the valvetronic motor which is what helps the timing belt. I booked in to get that repaired and they said I'll be fine to drive it and I have been driving for two days fine and now the engine light is flashing and the car is shaking a lot. Any advice on what it could be as I am just hoping it the vanos that I'm paying to get done. Also how long of a job is it.

Thanks
Dan.
Have you found out what's causing this problem?

Which pads did you fit / have fitted? Are they nicely bedded in yet?

Hey BMW lovers . I bought, recently, a 118i for 2005 and it's eating lot of petrol, I get 23mpg , driving decent. Before to go to an service I want to ask you, what could be the issues. A friend had give me a Carly for bmw to diagnostic the car and it's appear I have Missfire in 2 cylinders and the sensor before the catalyst converter shows it's in the danger zone, which I'm thinking this could be the issues. If you have any ideas what could be the issues please let me know. I appreciate your help. Cheers

Sounds like a something is out, lambda sensor is favourite imo, but could also be MAF, coil packs, injectors, etc.

What were your codes?
