My Ride: 318i Touring
Dog Rough after fixing control arm bushes.

Hi Guys

I replaced my control arm bushes today using the info on here, was pleased with how it went until I dropped it off the ramp and went for drive. The handling was much improved but the car perfomance stank.

Basically she has no pull, revs a lot, mpg drops massivley yet mph on creeps up. You can get up to speed but it takes ages.

I honestly cant believe I disturbed anything as there isnt much to disturb, so I plugged it in and I get a p0366 and p0011 fault return, which is the exhaust crankcase position sensor. Spent some time on here and also read that it could be a CVV failure as I have the sypmtoms for that too.

I have mayo on the dipstsick, its beens been burning oil recently but I also switched to 10/ 40 after reading on here that sometimes works.

I really am skint at the mo, so am looking for ideas on what to do next.

It's a 318i Touring 2002 with 110000 miles on the clock

any ideas.
