    Guys,

    I have just diagnosed P0340, P0170 and P0130 errors on my 318ci 2000.

    Is there anyone who can point to what sensors need to be replaced, and a good cheap site to purchase from?

    Thanks in advance!!
    Traction Control.... And where is the fun in that??

    340 - cam sensor
    The other 2 are for the lambda sensor, bank 1 (cyls 1 and 2)

    It's most likely the cam sensor that is causing it though.

    Did all three codes flash at once?

    Easiest way to ensure correct part numbers is to remove the defective part and find said number on it.
