The sensory that detects misfire is the crank position sensor. If a cylinder misses, the math doesn't work out for the expected position of the crank. I think that's where the smooth operation values come from that's just educates guess.

Since you aren't getting codes, you made be in a similar situation to me when I first bought my X5 but in my case was the intake cam position sensor.

No codes never drove funny but would stall with increasing frequency when moving short distances eg pull forward to turn left when the light turns green.

I would get codes but just random cylinder misfire nothing CPS related.

I think you may be experiencing a very similar thing.

Imagine if you will, the cpk is reading but adding or subtracting milliseconds from the timing of the crank. The car will have fits trying to figure out when to send the fuel and spark and will definitely mess with performance.

I forgot if you said you changed cam position sensors. That could also cause performance degradation.

No, never changed the cam sensors, is it recommended at a certain mileage?

Yup carbon buildup was my #1 theory before starting this thread. They were just cleaned less than a month ago.

Forgot to reply the other day, but the rebuilders for most auto parts chains, especially O'Reilly and Autozone out here, are NOT using Valeo or Bosch internals. The rebuilds, regardless of who the original manufacturer was, are all using the same aftermarket internals on their rebuilds.

That would explain the quick failures. You can get a new Bosch from O'Reilly for barely more than the rebuilt and from the way they handled my exchange I think they will replace new for new.

Usually when you start getting random weirdness a prime suspect is cam sensors. Usually they last 120-150 k miles

I have a 12 35i 185k, almost identical issues.

The water pump ďwaking upĒ and other shadow codes were definitely that water pump. The oil sensor, water pump, alternator, battery management (IBS) all share a serial bus interface wire ( think party line). When one component fails and pulls the bus wire down, the other items either canít communicate or start doing funny things until the failed component is fixed. In this case, the most likely is the water pump because the electronics are all housed within the case where coolant eventually leaks.

Hereís what I have done to ďsaveĒ this e70. The thing was a steal so I wasnít too worried about spending the money on parts. I started with what I knew to be broken or overdue and later just started throwing parts at it.

-Valve cover- ruptured diaphragm and rotten valves within the valve cover
-Valvetronic motor (I did this while I had the valve cover off. I DO NOT recommend this unless youíre prepared to replace the eccentric shaft, bearings, etc at the same time. The shaft wears a pattern into the bearings and gears wear a pattern into each other. Once disturbed, valvetronic motor current sensing is too sensitive and a run in cannot be done. Ask me how I know)
-Plugs and coils (Delphi)
-Intake Vanos solenoid- present code
-Intake valve cleaning, intake gaskets (including the gasket for the DME), sealing rings on charge pipes, cleaned maf
-A/F sensor- just because
-Injectors and coded them- shot in the dark. The plugs were pretty darkened and at 184k, I figured why not.
-Cleaned exhaust Vanos solenoid
-Oil filler cap gasket- any air leakage into the crankcase is a vacuum leak. The valve cover is a very integral part of the intake system, to this engineís detriment.
-Reset adaptations each time something major is done.
-Battery (Age)

Iíve gotten to the point that Iíll live with it for now until something actually breaks. Itís strong at WOT like the opís and itís just partial throttle where I feel a mild bucking sensation. I grabbed Carly to see some live data that I couldnít see on other tools but I havenít had an ah-ha moment. High pressure fuel reading looks fairly normal, throttle input, advance/retard of cams, MAP and MAF readings..

OP- a new thing I have noticed is that at night with the dome/map lights on, I can see some flickering from the lights that seem to be influenced by the engine operation and speed. Do you notice anything like that?

Nice to see I have a buddy with exact same issues lol. Yes replacing the waterpump fixed all those canbus devices!

No I have not noticed any flickering lights at all.

I'm going to try replacing the camshaft sensors next, ordering them tonight.
