2011 Mini Cooper 1.6L (N16B16A) 6-spd (GA6F21WA) — WMWZC3C50BWL78226
Long Start After Check Engine Light Comes On
Codes: 2Da2
Code: 2C58
Code: 2Da0

This vehicle's timing chain was replaced before with these same codes, but the engine was misfiring then. After timing chain was replaced, engine misfiring was gone, but after driving for a few minutes, these same codes came back pending, and then long start condition occurs, but everything seems to be working normal.

Can you give us the code descriptions.

Have you verified the pump for for the power brakes they some times get stiff and stop the vvt from advancing when commanded.

The code definitions would be a big help. But I seem to recall these having to do with the variable timing control. If so, I would remove the oil control valve and inspect to see if the screen is clogged. You could also activate it in the car before removing it or on the work bench.

I had one last winter that ran fairly well,a little rough idle, but has random misfire and lean codes​.​Ended up the brake booster had water that froze inside.I saved the old one for my wall of shame​.​lol

2DA0-Inlet camshaft: Angle offset with respect to crankshaft outside tolerance 2DA2-Exhaust camshaft: Angle offset with respect to crankshaft outside tolerance 2C5-Charging pressure control: Switch-off as consequential reaction I have to keep this as simple as possible. Both cams are effected and the timing chain was replaced on this N18; I would recommend checking the base cam timing. This…

Agree w checking the vacuum pump for oil internally- they can hydra lock. But if it is running good and still setting codes, it may be a computer issue. What scan tool are you using? Some scan tools will clear the codes but they will not be cleared from the ram. A hard reboot may not work either. I have had luck w Auto Land iscan2 to clear and do a reset/relearn procedure.

- 2DA2 Exhaust camshaft: Angular offset to crankshaft is outside tolerance range - 2DA0 Intake camshaft: Angular offset to crankshaft is outside tolerance range - 2C58 Boost-pressure control, deactivation: Boost pressure build-up blocked Since you have timing faults for both camshafts, I would remove the valve cover and recheck your timing with the special tools. The valve cover is easy to…

Can you do a relative compression test with an ignition sync to see if your off?

Thomas, The relative compression would not be effected by cam timing; since all cylinders would be effected equally​.​ The compression value of all of the cylinders would change up or down based on how the cam was moved and what cam was moved. Relative compression is a fast method to check for irregularities with the engine mechanical condition and base ignition timing. I like your thought…

My thought was we are concerned about timing correct? If we perform a RC with a ignition sync off #1 coil could we see if our firing Event is happening advanced or retarted? I’m not ruling out the step to see what our cam and crank correlation. what Testing would you perform to see what our problem is? Thanks! I will see you next year in your BMW/Mini bus class.

Mini timing chain was replaced before with these same codes. But after driving for a few minutes, these same codes came back pending, and then long start condition occurs, then when the engine light comes on, the power goes off a littlebit. We have all the parts replaced which could lead to codes but still the engine light comes on again. Has anyone found the cause that leads to the light coming…
