2000 E39 M5 idle hunting and a ton of error codes!

I have a 2000 e39 M5 i bought almost a year ago. Ive been slowing working on it just minor things here and there. I recently changed the spark plugs and changed my oil seperator system (the seperator system didnt do much to help oil burning) and replaced my mass airflow sensors. Everything was running fine till half of my cylinders stopped firing (which is why i replaced my sensors) and that fixed the problem for about a day. After replacing them my car was idle hunting for a bit until warm then it went away, now it does this constantly but for some reason drives smooth. I decided to scan it today and i was blow away by the amount of codes that appeared out of no where. I was given P1526 Manf Cntrl veh. spd. idle speed control auxiliary imputs. P0022 Camshaft Position actuator A - bank 2 timing over retard. P1350 manufacturer control ignition system or misfire. P0316 misfire detected first 1000 revs. P1432 manufacturer control auxiliary emission controllers. And last but not least P0175 system too rich (Bank 2). Normaly i would look up common fixes and start to tackle them but this is just so many i didnt know what to to or where to start. My car has about 130k miles on her. Im not sure what else to do and i figured id ask if anyone had any ideas on here before going to the mechanics.

My boss's 01 e39 M5 is doing the same thing. Codes for O2 sensors, 02 heaters, misfire on all cylinders, thermostat, tank leak. 17 codes in all. What caused it on yours?

OP, go to bimmerforums and post your issues in the ”general bmw mechanical help” forum. Hopefully bmwdirtracer will respond. His name is Chris and he tracks the same car. Chris is a top flight tech. There are other great techs there also.

2000 E39 M5 misfiring and lots of error codes

All of the fixes ive been able to find are for if your car is giving you a cylinder code Normaly i would look up common fixes and start to tackle them but this is just so many i didnt know what to to or where to start. My car has about 130k miles on her. Im not sure what else to do and i figured id ask if anyone had any ideas on here before going to the mechanics.

First guess would be that the parts that you replaced were not of great quality, but that's just a guess.

you need your own code reader.... a BMW specific reader, like the foxwell nt520


just 'reading codes' means you are seeing EVERY code since the last time they were reset. Could be years old.

Reset/clear, then see what comes back.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells
