Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to its own thread in the correct 7 series forum. You will get more help in here if you post the exact error code(s) you're getting.

If it does after long idles, it could be the valve stem seals. I just had mine replaced this week. Car would take off in a big cloud of white smoke after I idled for periods of time.


Smoke it gone, and so is my check engine light. While they were in there, they replaced my water pump, cleaned my cylinder heads, spark plugs and other items.


Now she runs like a BEAST.
