Mein Auto: 07 328i
p1415,p0171 & p0174 help please....

07' 328i - 110K miles

I had the overheating light pop up.

codes indicated need to replace the water pump.

In addition to getting the water pump/thermostat replaced, i also got Valve Gasket and the tensioner replaced.

The over heating issue stopped popping up.

There is a burning smell. the mechanic suggests that there is residual oil that is heating up.

the SEL came up, with codes for 1415/171/174.

I have reset the codes and hoping they don't pop up.

I am not sure, if the SEL has got to do anything with the work performed?

In either case, what is the solution(s) for this.

Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like a vacuum leak to me.

+1

P1415 could be a vacuum leak or a bad MAF sensor. P0171 and P0174 are 99% vacuum leak.

Thank you for your quick reply.
Is it fair for me to believe that the issue has no relation to the work that was performed?

Should i go to the dealer to get this done, and if so what would be cost?

Thanks

Would recommend taking it back. I have done a lot of my own work and forgot to connect something up or didn't put it back together solidly with similar results that happened soon after. If you did not have the codes before, odds are it may be simple. They just need to recheck their work first. There are some vacuum lines that may need to be disconnected to that work. Don't panic.

Went Back...
No Vaccumm leak.
Thinks it is the crank shaft.
The car has been throwing out smoke. Initially thought of it to be residual engine oil,,,but now don't know what it is....

Planning to take it to the dealership hoping it is not a big dent to the vallet

If you guys have seen something similar please let me know what to expect.

Thanks in advance....
