    Hi All,

    I hope someone can help me. I started my car (2006 318i) yesterday and the engine and exhaust started sounding very rough. The engine light also came up so I plugged in my diagnostic tool and it came up with the following error message.

    P0366 KWP2000
    Camshaft Positon
    Sensor B - Blank 1
    CKT Range/Perf

    Does anyone know what is wrong with my car? What needs to be repaired and how much it would cost?

    Also is it ok for me to carry on driving my car with this problem?

    I cleared the error message and it did not make any difference. Even though the engine light did not come back up when I plugged in the diagnostic tool in again the same error message came up.

    It is possible that you have a timing chain problem, and it has jumped a tooth. This would also explain the difference in sound.
    I would avoid driving the car if possible, maybe a trip to a garage, and it would probably need the timing reset, and maybe new timing chain guides and tensioners, but get them to check it first!

    It's unlikely to be a chain jumping the sprockets. I would think it's more likely that the camshaft position sensor is duff. It's sending dodgy signals to the ecu hence the bad running. Replace it and all should be well.

    I would agree that it is more likely to be a faulty camshaft sensor, however with that engine jumping a tooth is also a common problem. Did your car suffer from a rattle on cold start - if so it is likely to be a timing chain problem, if not the the sensor.

    Hopefully it's the sensor - a lot cheaper!
