320i E92 - few issues :( new user alert!

Hi all

Glad to be a member here, tried a few other forums and I can safely say that they aren't half as lively as this one

I'm 19 and purchased a silver E92 with the early 2L N43 engine - I love it, especially my 313 19's! Here's a pic:



Back on topic!

So I've had a few error codes, one being the thermostat which I replaced myself the error code has now dissapeared.

However, I have two current issues:

1) I have a misfire on cylinder four when the engine is cold and outside temps are below 15C, if the weather is fairly hot I don't get a misfire at all which is strange - also the car shakes quite a lot i.e the gear stick on idle until the car is fully hot as well as slight juddering until full engine time. I am also recieving a lamba sensor fault P2273P? could the lamba sensor be causing the misfire and which sensor is best to replace?

2) I sometimes get the ABS light, DTC & run flat lights flash which disables cruise control etc. My theory is, after resetting my run flat indicator - these dissapear. Could my system be mistaken that I have a puncture? i'm running 255/30/19 on the rear and 225/35/19 up front with 39PSI at the rear and 36PSI up front - any recommendation for changing the pressure?

Thanks for your help all

#1 - Most likely a bad coil
#2 - I'd get that looked at, start with pressure labeled on the door jam, work around from there, BMW pressure is just a guideline.

Hi mate,

how did yours start off?

Was the fault intermittent? at first the lights stayed on even after the car turned off, read somewhere that someone reset their run flat monitor and it resolved the issue - this resolved mine also, could it be that my run flats kicked everything off? as if i hit a slight bump with traction control ON, it decides to kick in - i have to hold down DTC for 2 seconds to disable some functions to give me tolerance when driving as the tyres are very hard compound.

I have heard the module comes in 2 parts, one mechanical and one electric - apparently the electrical side rarely failes and its the mechanical pump - these can be bought in the UK for 160 which is roughly $300?
