N20 engine malfunction light

Folks,

I'm new to this forum. I have a 2012 X1 xdrive28i with 19,000kms on it. I've had the car for a year with no issues whatsoever until this weekend.

On a road trip i was on the engine lost significant power and this Engine Malfunction Loss of Power code appeared. I turned off the engine and waited, restarted and the code cleared and all was fine. Upon my return home the code appeared 3 more times.

I do have an appt scheduled for Monday. Has anyone here experienced this and what came from it?

Cheers

Not really, maybe check your gas cap.

I also watch the other forums with the same engine and haven't seen any "common" reasons for any engine errors. There have been very few reports of problems so far.

Fuel injector? A few have reported problems with those.

Check with your local auto parts store and see if they will read the codes for you, it won't tell you a bad part per se (unless a gas cap) but it will give the code(s) for whatever malfunctions it saw.

Thought I'd update you all. Looks like the turbo wastegate system failed. It's a fairly extensive job but its under warranty. They gave me a 2012 3 series loaner which is quite nice.

I had the same issue today, the engine was very jerky and the whole car was shaking when idling. Got an appointment friday for a checkup (not related to this)
