Hi All, my first post....
My car has the N53 engine which I see from this and other forums is an unreliable engine. Recently when accelerating from 50-60 Mph the engine power dropped off a bit, the yellow engine light came on and the engine felt very sluggish. Stopping then restarting the engine cleared the problem. Yesterday it happened again.
I live quite far from the dealer (the one I trust) and they charge a £15 per day ‘admin’ fee for loan cars, so I’m reluctant to book my car in for this so far minor niggle. I would like to get the dealer to check it out when its in for its next service which should be due in the next couple of months. But, having read through posts on this forum I see that the ECU logs dates such as when the fault codes were last cleared. Does it also log when and how many times the yellow engine light comes on? If it does, would you suggest I book my car in sooner so I don’t get caught out with some warranty small print?
