    Vehicle : Bmw 330d

    Trim : Msport

    Engine : 3.0d

    Year : 2008

    Default

    Would not worry at all about the dtcs early models always had lots of random codes and if gearbox isn't noisey wouldn't worry bout that either just the clutch getting a bit worn probably

    Default

    i need to do something about code p0234 as car does goes into limp mode a few times but i trough was coz of EGR valve but not.
    the gearbox does makes a crunchy noisey when gears go in. for example i was having troubles getting 3rd in today, i had to push hard/quick to get it in and not allways went in. will change the oil n see if makes any difference
