Did SA say there are still transmission and turbo fault codes after the TC job?

Trusted indies quoted the job as $2k to $2.5k without and with oil pump, dealer prices usually are $4k+ with oil pump.

The next court date will be 12/2, maybe there will be news soon on this issue.

It should be OK as long as hot timing chain is snug, and increasing rpm does not have high pitch whining.

Forum posts about N20/N26 timing chain issues virtually have zero reference to transmission/turbo, it is unclear if BMWNA will cover this or not under TC ELW.

Thanks for feedback.:thumbup: This is first time gas pedal is mentioned for TC failure, maybe the ECU can detect camshaft timing issue an shut down engine preemptively to avoid further engine damage.

It looks like a plausible way to examine the plastic guard rail snap on is through the oil filler cap opening, but some special semi-rigid borescope extension bent at the correct angle(s) is needed. ...

Looking at the photo, it looks like the borescope somehow needs to do a 90-degree turn through a straight circular opening, probably BMW needs to make some special tools.

This is a great video to replace N20/N26 VCG, it is unclear where the intake camshaft sensor goes( around 7:00 when the tech gets to the front of VC).

N20/N26 VCG can easily be $1k around here...

Thanks for the out of the box idea!

The compelling evidence now makes me think that every 70k miles should have a pre-emptive "maintenance" on this TC + guard rails + oil pump + oil chain, regardless of pre or post 2/2015 production.

My hope is that my car will experience issue, and be fixed under ELW!

But the issue is without taking VC off, there is no way to examine that clip-on part.

So now my other hope is my VCG will...

One additional point is that, do try to fill with LL01FE 0w30 in next oil change(your local dealer should have value service for $90 + tax).

LL01FE has HTHS of 3.0+,...

So it looks like a non-M sedan without roof upholstery will cost a lot less from 102k-110k miles then?
