Question about 2009 BMW X5
Recently my service engine light came on and brought the codes P0492 & P0493. I was told it was the secondary air injection system. I then brought it in to get checked out and they told me the secondary air pump needed to be replaced. I did not have it fixed yet because I was told it was not urgent. However, now my MPG gauge is malfunctioning and it just started doing this since my engine light came on. I will be coasting towards a stoplight, no foot on either peddle, the MPG gauge will read 40MPG, and then as soon as I put my foot on the brake the MPG gauge goes down to 15MPG and then immediately switches directions and heads to 40MPG. When i begin accelerating it also hesitates before it begins to move. Could this be a direct cause of the secondary air pump?
Fist of all this is a 2009 vehicle and if you are having any problem with a secondary air pump with this NEW vehicle it should be under warranty or should be a recall and should be fixed for FREE, by BMW. This vehicle in my opinion is way too new to be having such problems, that pump must have been defective. I also believe that thier may be other problem going o with this vehicle. MY SUGGESTION IS TO TAKE THIS THING BACK TO BMW ADN HAVE THEM FIX ALL YOUR ISSUES FOR FREE. Good Luckand thanks for using FIX YA
