    hi
    took my 1999 323 in for diagnostic check as it is running really rough,fault codes given are
    152 , 227 , 238 , 239 , 240 , 228 , 186 , and the last one i think is 262 or 202 or 282(photo copy is dodgy)
    mechanics conclusion is needs new mechanical throttle body,
    been told its a common problem can anyone confirm this?
    many thanks
    wayne

    152 is lambda sensor bank 1
    227 mixture deviation, bank 1
    228 mixture deviation, bank 2
    238/239/240 is misfire detected on 1/2/3 (which again are all on back one)

    186 lambda voltage, bank 1

    The last code will be 202 (as it's 8bit, so only 255 codes available) and that is....
    drumroll......

    Lambda regulation bank 1

    If won't be the throttle, as pretty much everything is turning up for just the front 3 cyls.
    Either the sensor has problems, there is a hole in the exhaust, or there is some bad coilpacks in there which aren't burning the fuel / air, so the oxygen is picked up in the exhaust.
