BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hi how can I help you with this? what question did you have specifically?
hi, this question was posted as low urgency, so there can be a delay in getting a response.
yes it is possible that it could be a cam or crank sensor that is the issue.
looking in the oil for signs of chain deterioration should be sufficient to determine if the chain is the issue or not. otherwise a factory bmw scan tool can be used to monitor live data from the engine management system and identify if a sensor or a chain issue is likely.
