well to start with the P0306 is a misfire cyl 6 code According to Irvine BMW, P1553 is a code attached to the Vanos solenoid (valve positioning system). There can be several causes: 1. Solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced ($650 parts and labor) 2. Engine oil is dirty and causing Vanos to stick. (much cheaper). P1434 Bmw Description The Engine Control Module monitors the Diagnostic Module Tank Leakage (DMTL).The ECM sets the OBDII code when the Diagnostic Module Tank Leakage (DMTL) is not to factory specifications..P1328 Description The Engine Control Module monitors the Knock Sensor.The ECM sets the OBDII code when the Knock Sensor is not to factory specification.P17e3 Bmw Description The Transmission Control Module (TCM) monitors the Clutch Ratio. The TCM sets the OBDII code when the Clutch Ratio is not to factory specifications
