The Great Drivetrain fault mystery.

Hi All, Once again i return to this forum to ask for the combined wisdom of fellow frustrated BMW owners. my 2012 F10 520d keeps throwing this fault out and like many other owners have found , much to their and the dealerships frustration it is cleared with a restart of the car. When i use my Rheingold/ISTA to diagnose it comes back with 3 fault codes. Two of which seem like likely suspects-255C00 and 282C00. Both are related to Exhaust Gas Pressure Regulator Position.I can reproduce these symptoms by driving in 3/4th gear at low revs about 1500-2000rpm. I suppose some would say just above the engine labouring even though the car is telling me to change up!! My Rheingold/ISTA is set to english but produces fault messages in german I,m all ears boys and girls

BMW tech here,,,,I'm sorry I don't know these type of fault codes,,,,I just know the factory BMW fault codes,,,,,but if it says exhaust gas pressures,,,,there's probably a problem with the exhaust NOX sensors or the catalytic converter ,,,,,my blog page Bmwtechnician . com

if the car is stuttering and misfiring at 1500-2000RPM its very likely an ignition coil. try swapping coils with the misfiring cylinder and see if the misfire moves. then you will know your culprit.

be sure to also change your spark plugs if it is in fact a coil issue.
