Diesel Manifold Flaps
The result can include a ruined piston, valves and cylinder head… while on their way out, the bits will also take out your turbo and then just for good measure the catalyst too.
BMW addressed the problem by introducing stronger swirl flaps and larger diameter spindles - made from plastic - in 2006. This however is no help to the owners of older models, especially as they are now coming out of warranty.
As a rough guide, engines affected will be those produced from 2001 to July 2005.
The best solution is simply to eliminate the problem by removing the flaps completely.
It's not as serious as it sounds, since the effect of removing the flaps is apparently a very slight increase in emissions at idle and the car will drive no differently: off idle, the engine runs with the flaps fully open in any case.
