Thread: Help P0365 code again!

Help P0365 code again!
I have posted a few times over the last year about the sluggish response I have been dealing with and want to thank all of the replies trying to help.
After suggestions I have tested the fuel pressure, cleaned the MAF and all of the obvious tune up related item.
I have already replaced the exhaust cam sensor with an OEM part and come to think of it I believe it was about that time I started feeling no power at low RPM's, hesitation and stumbling not to mention the reverse stalling and surging (every day I back down the driveway)and today the SES light came on and I scanned the OBD and found the P0365 code again.
Yeah it could have been the sensor failing again but I am wondering what other conditions would cause the system to send that code. Basing my suspicions on it has been running poorly for a long time now. I love the car except for the AM radio reception and the recent issues with my passenger window regulator. I have replaced it with a $52 aftermarket one and it failed after 3-4 days. (The replacement failed in even less time so picked up the OEM unit today).
Garage kept it's whole life, want to keep it if I can but I need some power even from the 2.5
I have a 2001, 325i w/sport package, 5 speed manual.
Thanks in advance for your help

get a fuel pressure test gauge
far more valuable than your code reader
ever replace the fuel filter? dump it out
into a glass jar and see what's causing yer troubles
only through a BMW diagnostic computer will you
accurately read codes and be able to read past into a
tree of diagnosis.

C.D., when I first posted my problem a year ago it was suggested to check fuel pressure which I did and the readings were perfect based on the Manual. I have replaced the fuel filter. Cleaned the MAF sensor.
But I am getting the P0365 now and after I clear it the light comes back on a day or so later.
So I have a new one on the way and if it persists I will be taking it to a local guy once I find out who is good in my area.

Re: Help P0365 code again!
I would concentrate first on the P0365 error code. Are you sure that it's coming from the exhaust cam? I once had a confusion between the post-cat O2 sensors: the Bentley manual pointed to the wrong one for the code I was reading. Perhaps the same is happening to your cam position sensor?
Is that the only error that you are getting? No Vanos errors, for example?

Now that you mention it, my Bentley manual lists P1397 as the exhaust sensor code and P0340 for the intake.
When I do a search online "BMW P0365" I get the exhaust cam sensor but it is a generic code not specific to BMW. I believe my code book that came with my reader had that listed as well (currently misplaced)
So I am wondering now if that is in fact the correct code for my E46
I have a new genuine BMW cam sensor coming tomorrow so since I have it I will most likely install it since it is easy and only $95
If anyone has the correct answer please do pass it on.
