I'm not so sure the part number I posted is for my car. It's listed as part for cars with SMG transmissions. I'll do a bit more research and then post another update.

At this point some of those older BMWs are approaching collector car status, at least in the eyes of the sellers. I see ridiculously priced BMWs in Roundel all the time.

What is code C1110

I'm getting C1110 on my 03 330ci. According to the Internet:



Can someone explain what does that mean? I'm guessing it's not a fuse, maybe a sensor?

Switch coils between 1 & 2. If the code follows the coil, then you have a bad coil.

Something else that might be related - the little vacuum line from the F connector on the intake boot broke off. I think that goes to the fuel filter. Is it possible that is causing the codes I see?

The results are in. Rough idle at low RPM, 4 of the lean codes from before are back. Whats new is B0310 & B0500 and an oil leak from the VANOS oil hose, which I suspect I forgot to tighten.

I looked for the bolt in my local home improvement store and they did not have it. How big deal is it if I leave it as is?
I need the car tomorrow and the dealer is closed.

I checked my records, the spark plugs were changed 35K miles ago. I use Bosch platinum 4+ (or maybe iridium, I forget), they last 100K easy.
