unknown error codes

Hi all

This is my first post, so please be gentle!
I've got a 2007 Cooper and I have a code problem.
Being a girl, I've taken it to a local dealer that has given me a Bosch readout stating codes 287D - camshaft timing intake faulty, 2870 - intake camshaft adaptation faulty, 2F22 engine temperature value implausible. They scratched their head and said that it most likely needs a new ECU.
They cleared my engine management light, however it came back on within 1/2 mile.
What I would like to know is, are they right or am I getting taken for a ride?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
Claire

Hi ya

Sorry to here you are having problems have a look at this link sounds like you have a inlet camshaft timing issue not an ECU problem

08' R56 n12 code 287d - North American Motoring

All these code would point me at a timing issue on the inlet camshaft may be a bad chain or tensioner or guide or even a sensor. You need to get it to someone who knows there stuff.

I think I would get the sensor checked first though may be water in the plug it my be some this as simple as that

Where about are you in the country we my be able to suggest a good independent mini specialist who may be able to help

Hope this helps a little

Hi ya

i have attached a PDF you need to check any electrical plugs on items 15,17,19 take them off and clean them and also have a look make sure there are no loose or worn though vacuum pipes around item 17

trouble with the system is if you have to dismantle it you need setting and holding tools
i would suggest if you take it anywhere take it to 1320 mini it abit of a drive but they are worth the trip. they know these minis in side out.
you could call them they may be able to help
Contact Us

depending on what engine you have the valvetronic motor sometimes fails due to lack of servicing oil changes, the mech gets all slugged up.
this will cause the inlet timing problems

sorry can be much more help its hard to fix when it not in front of me :-(

1. clear faults and adaptation values 2. swap the intake camshaft solenoid with the exhaust camshaft solenoid.
3. drive the car untill the fault comes back and see if its for the exhaust side. if it is its your solenoid. if its still the intake, you have timing issues, either out of time or stretched timing chain. as far as the temp fault, most likely its your coolant temp sensor. those are known to go bad.

Canada Female
Canada 283 D Vanis Exhaust Adaption Stop

Hello Everyone My name is Ellen. I own a 2007 MINI Cooper going on 3 years now and I need your help. She is throwing a code 283 D Vanos Exhaust Adaption Stop. The yellow engine light is on and she has considerable loss of power. I just got her back from getting her painted and I am so discouraged. Any thoughts what it is?
