Car: Pure turbo S1 FBO 335i
Default Can't figure out what's wrong - 02-23-2019, 02:04 PM

FBO pure turbo stage 1 335i

Car sat for 5 months, and started throwing random check engine lights after the sit. I thought it was the fuel, but after a few tanks it wasn't. Noticed it would throw a CEL @ 5.5-6k rpms wot. So I decided to change the plugs, ngk -1 .. which were the same ones that were in the car. old ones didn't look fouled once pulled.Igapped them to .22

Drove the car, once again got a cell (sometimes) for a camshaft sensor, intake. So while waiting for the part I cleaned my vanos solenoids. I Swapped the sensor today and idle and driving is perfect. Car pulls hard, but now around 6k the car misfires cylinder 1 & 3. Prior to today, never got a misfire in any cylinder. I am stumped and don't know what else to do. AFR is digital using jb4 and the car isn't running lean. Fuel pressure L/H is perfect.

Someone help

Swap coils from bank 1 to 2. See if the failure follows.
If still on bank 1 then do injectors.
Swap and recode injectors between banks. See if the problem follows

That's what I'm going to try tomorrow, start with coils. If it's not, might bring it somewhere to get it diagnosed

You could also check if there is gas on a plug after sitting for a bit. That would indicate a failed injector as well.

Let the car sit overnight -

Pull plugs 1-3- see if they’re wet with fuel.

If yes- injector on that bank

Edit- could also check the gap & close it a bit to .020
