Over the last few weeks, I have had an "SES" light come on 3 or 4 times. When reading the code(s), I get P0303 Cyl 3 misfire and the BMW code P113C pre cat O2 sensor. Read by a generic Autel code reader. I have had the P113C code before, about 2 1/2 years ago. http://www.motoringalliance.com/forums/cooper/20458-error-fault-code-p113c.html I only use an OEM coil, NGK plugs and wires. All less than 3 months old. Nick at Detroit Tuned suggested doing a compression test to determine if an exhaust valve is bad or the rings. I will do this at the weekend. Already fitted a new NGK O2 sensor, and cleared codes. Nick also suggested using Cooper S valves, less prone to burning out, and doing timing chain/guides at the same time. Car currently has about 128000 miles on it. If I do this myself, the valves as supplied by DT would be about $330 and the timing chain/guides about $180. On top of this would be all of the gaskets, etc. This little project could end up costing $700+, if I turn the wrenches myself. Although the Justa is in generally great condition, apart from stone chips on the bonnet, I don't know that I want to throw that kind of money into a 10 yr old car. Budget always has to be an issue, I'm the only wage earner in a household of 5 (including 2 teenage boys!!!!). I guess that I could sell the stuff that I have accumulated for the car (center arm rest, Redline armrest cover, new boot tray, etc.). Or I could just trade it, and let someone else have the potential headache. Thoughts? P.S. Thanks to Nick for the great advice.
