The fault code is for a cam sensor (I beilieve it's cam sensor 1) That would make TOTAL sense because without cam sensor 1 the trans wouldn't know when to shift and the car would run like crap...check it's connection

im not really sure about this... its just a guess but would replacing the gaskets make you need to re align the camshaft? maybe the timings off...

Valvecover gaskets have nothing to do with the cam...hell you can't even see the cams with the valve cover removed. Don't say anything if you can't say something smart.

(PS: I can say that until you become BMW Master Certified as well)

well i fixed it.

the damn gasket wasent sitting right, huge oil leak... and loss of oil pressure i guess is what made it run like shit... since replacing these gaskets, i can feel it have more of a throttle response... but it still sputters, thanks to my plugged cats.... those are next!

thanks for the help all!

Thats kind of rude, not everybody knows everything, people just try to pitch in and help. Yes you can see the cams with the valve covers removed BTW. And are you Indeed Master Level? Not that it really matters.....

you can see the cam drive gear in the front but the cam themselves, and I was more ticked off (sorry for being rude I'm a bit PMSy and it was a long/bad day at work) Needless to say if you take the valve cover off you can't really mess with the cams themselves I think you may have been thinking head gaskets because you have to set the cams before you remove the head or you risk losing the timing and it is a PAIN to get it back without the proper equipment (not something I would suggest)

Yeah, but I shouldn't have taken my bad day out on you (it's not your fault after all) So, forgive? And hey, if you are ever unsure you can ALWAYS ask any of us (we all had a starting point!)
