I got check engine light on. It is a 2000 528I. Car has 47000 miles and it is automatic. The light came on 3 or 4 times. I have the bavarian fault code reader and when i ran it gave me codes 15 and 41. The booklet gives me few 15s and 41s. Here they are 15:
- precat oxygen sensor response time cyl# 5-8
- precat oxygen sensor slow response cyl# 5-8
- exhaust camshaft VANOSretard valvecyl#1-4
- VANOS (solenoid)
- VANOS solenoid intake
41s:
- camshaftsensor
- misfire detected catalyst damaging cyl# 3
- thorottle position sensor 2, slave movment
- A/C compressor

I deleted those codes but after a week or so it comes back. When it does car has a hesitation during acceleration, and starts hard which means it doesn't start right away takes a bit more time.

Did it happen to anyone of You. All comments are welcome

I would double check these fault codes because they seem very wrong unless you have installed an 8 cylinder in your car!

While you do have 2 precat O2 sensors and 2 postcats. That is a total of 4 sensors; they only deal with cyl # 1-6 NOT cyl # 1-8 unless you were looking the codes up in the 540 table!! Double check on the above since you have a 528i (6 cyl not 8) and let us know.

Hint: Try to look up the same codes in table 11 instead of 15

This is more like it. So when you plug in your code reader and press GO usually the 1st number that pops up is your reference to the table number in your book. Once done and since you have many codes (serious ones if I may add) write it down then cross reference it with the table and repost.
good luck

So that means that the sensor needs to be replaced, did anyone of you did it before? If you did how hard is it to change it?
