Another Engine Malfunction Reduced Power
Few days ago, I was driving my car and received the dreaded Malfunction Reduced Power fault. Right before the malfunction, I smelled a strong fuel smell. The engine was shaking and sounded very rough. I was close to home so I just drove straight there.
The next day I had the car towed to the dealer, and today I received an email with their findings. Attached is the computer generated error code (I think.. because I asked the service representative to send me a copy of the error code report) along side the cost of fixing the problem, which truned out to be ignition coils, spark plugs, engine mounts, leak between transmission and engine (even though I have no oil drops where I park the car), replacement of underneath covers and a few other nuts and bolts.
Can M5 gurus please take a look and advice? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
08 E60 M5 production 03/07 Euro face-lift.
60k miles on the clock. I bought the car with 54k miles.
No mods except from K&N Intake system installed by PO at the dealer.
PO have done all services at the dealership, at least that's what the records I found with the car suggests.
Note: $1 = 3.65QR
Total estimation to fix all problems is $5590
