Mein Auto: 520D 177 M SPORT
Exclamation Warning message - engine fault?

HI - greeting from Ireland
I have an engine fault displaying on my 2008 520d M Sport - Auto.
The message states that there is an "Engine fault- Reduced Power, possible to continue journey, drive moderately, Visit BMW service".
The car has only 9000 miles on the clock, any ideas? I did notice that it was jerking when i had it in reverse and was putting on brake, possibly unrelated.
Any advice greatfully appreciated, but will be on to the dealer first thing tomorrow.

It sounds like the fuel pump. Ho-hum.

It's broken....

Sorry my odd sense of humor. Could be anything. These cars are so complex. Get it to the dealer ASAP
