Unfortunately we don't have Partsource in Quebec... I'll look for something similar though! Thanks!

Didn't know there was a recall for that wiring, good to know! I'll definitely take a look at these sensors this weekend!

Thanks,

Hey guys,

So I haven't found anyone to scan my car, I am therefore looking into buying the equipment to do so myself. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what I need to buy and from what site/place so I can do it myself?

Thanks,

Francis

Hey guys,

Thought I'd post an update in case anyone searches this thread later on.
Two weeks ago, I finally got the car scanned, and it turned out to be an oxygen sensor (code P0155 - Bank 2, sensor 1). So I started shopping around for a replacement, looking at an inexpensive alternative to the Bosch one. While doing so, a friend and I decided my car deserved to be heard without a muffler. So we cut the muffler off, and on the test drive I could redline normally (why? I don't know). Check engine light was still on though. Ran straight pipes for a week, then decided to put it back to my M3 setup (had to keep looking left and right for cops, damn it was loud). Anyways, I'm back to my old setup and I can still rev to 6500 rpm, and even beyond. Check engine light still showing. I am still going to change the oxygen sensor, but I can't figure out what happened for my car to go back to normal.

Thanks a lot for your replies guys, appreciated your help!

Francis

Lol I changed my diff yesterday to a 323, and I was driving with the muffler off and now mine is doing the same thing peake tool is giving me vehicle speed sensor code so I'm gonna swap over my speed sensor from my old diff and see if that fixes it. When I clear the codes it let's me rev all the way but once it comes back same thing.

The catalytic converter is probabally all emptied into that muffler causing a restriction

I don't have a code for that issue that was the other guy who started the thread, but I'm going to check the abs sensor as another member told me that could cause this issue

I have the same problem as well in my 97 328i. I did a scan not to long ago and and got a code 214 (P0500) which is related to the VSS vehicle speed sensor. I believe it to be in the passenger back wheel area. I have not got a new VSS but, before I do I would like to know if that could be the culprit. Car pulls good to, and then limits to 5250RPM
