What type of warranty do you have, & what is the reason why they will not cover the problem? This sounds like there is a problem with the secondary air system. Is the engine smoking after coming to a stop, for a short time?

Need more info!

Most aftermarket warranties exclude emissions systems. I was looking at AutoPom for my X5 diesel but the EGR valves are excluded. W

It is common for the secondary air pump to make noise on a cold start. It will not effect anything, other than passing emission's. Your problems most likely are worse than the pump valve making noise. Have the codes pulled again, & list them all. Some type of BMW tool should be used.

Good Luck!

Glad you got it fixed. Did you inspect the valves & any air passages while changing the y-pipe? Did you get any codes after the repair?
