Mein Auto: 2008 535i
Hard start

2008 535i

Issue - Hard start ie have to hold down the start button for extended amount of time before car turns on. Noted prior to this check engine light car would start up right away however during cold start engine would "flutter" as if it was struggling to stay on, stepped on gas and "flutter" went away.

Check engine light came on "Engine malfunction! Reduced power."

Have two codes
1) P0335 Crankshaft position sensor
2) P1727 not sure what code this is

Questions
1) should I go ahead and replace crankshaft position sensor?
2)What is code P1727?
3) Possible High Pressure Fuel Pump issue? Any one know a DIY for it?
Thank you.

Hard starts can also be attributed to a failing battery, unless you've already addressed that.

Replaced HPFP and crankshaft sensor. Problem solved. Battery was not an issue with hard start.
