Hey guys,

I saw these 2 codes on INPA and the following screen on DIS (my first time using it) Y6167:



Online it points to the DISA valve and DIS says that it is to do with the variable intake system. Anyone experienced this?

Spoke to my local specialist, informed him of the codes and sent the screen that showed the message from DIS, below is his reply:

"Thanks for the info, yes it could be a number of things the only real way forward is to have it here and loo at what is taking place, INPA is a software that a lot of customer's purchase and though quote powerful it can lead you to areas that are not effected some say it may be a DISA valve thing is on these engines unlike the 330i for instance there isn't a separate valve as such and if someone has via these codes thrown this in to the mix then they could be a little wide of the mark, actuators can play up and get sticky(if you look at the codes its mentioned) but the only way forward is to have the car in here for a dealer level diagnosis Shahid and then go from there."

Which is fair play I guess, I think for now I will leave it as its now showing any warnings on the dash/iDrive and car seems to be running fine. If anyone has any other input I'd be happy to hear it.

You should be able to use DIS to troubleshoot the problem. There are test plans that will lead you down the road to test each component. I know you are not familiar with DIS, so jump in & test the waters. You have to remember that the software was written for German engineering, so think out of the box. You will learn how powerful DIS is, once you understand how to use it! You can go straight into the DME functions, which is most likely where you will find the problem. I would clean all of the connectors associated with the throttle, to eliminate false data. Aslo lubricate the linkage.
