The re-mapping tool you does a lot of cars but doesnt ALL ...It does most EDC15 ECUs ( Bmw x5, ) and a few EDC16 ,so I need to know what engine and year the 2 transporters are.
The tool is useful but is limited and to be able to do most cars (new ones are now EDC17) you would need to spend 1000s on equipment,like us!
In anyway,I will send you prices and more data ,via PM ...as we are going off topic a bit and is unfair for other members

heya just keeping you all updated

took a lil bit of a punt with the injector cleaner, and it has worked..

i cant say it has fixed the issue but the rumbling has stoped, we put it in on friday nite with a full tank and a double dose of cleaner, she then took it on a 200mile jouney and it was a lil better when she got back, we then took it around some more and nealy used all the fuel and it doesnt "MISS" at all, just need to sort the rest of the faults now

Ok..here goes.
P0404 is an EGR blockage /solenoid fault.Since you already did the EGR test,then it can only be a faulty solenoid valve.

P1613 is an internal controle module detecting memory fault(Has you car been re-mapped incorrectly?...This is common)

P1640 is You EML (engine management light) on the dash!This error usually occurs due this circuit being in shorted.The ECU is trying to turn the EML on and it cant!Do you have an EML on?Doubt it!

P3505 is your Glow plugs.No point in finding out which one is bad.You must change all 6.

If your did the Diag at Bmw ,then this what you need to change.
So,if you had injector issues,there would be a code for itmnost certainly,so just forget that for now.

Any luck yet in finding out if you have the Swirl Flaps?

could you help me out with the solenoid on the egr, is this part of the egr or is it located somewhere else

do you think i should remove the batttery for 20/30min to see if it corrects the ECU fault and im having a lil issue with the alarm "beeping" 1 time a second, may this be related?

Update

the injector cleaner hasnt fixed the problem altogether, the x is still stuttering slightly, it seems fine in neutral but in drive there is a slight shudder, But the injectpr cleaner has improved the situation

More investigation is needed so the story continues

bmw e39 egr solenoid valve 7.22341.00 1 on eBay (end time 24-Feb-11 14:39:52 GMT)

is that what im looking for?
and if it is for the price ( im assuming its quite cheap to buy new) that i just replace it?


and for the memory fault, would it be worth disconnecting the battery for 30min or will it need a ecu upgrade/reprog?

Yes,thats the part you need but preferably get a new one.Best to go to dealer giving them your chassis number and say you want the EGR solenoid for your car.
No harm in disconnecting battery but you will need to have you ecu reprogrammed and then a full diagnostic done again.
