Does the check engine light leave a code for a possible MAF, or reduced air flow?

No code appears when check engine light comes on

If the light is on there is a code in one module or another. Have fixed several Minis. They have different problems I want to give you the right information so I need the code. Try a profession scanner not a code reader.

high pressure fuel pump went bad on my 2007 s mini cooper. covered under warranty up to 100,000 miles by the dealer. would sputter and stall three or four times then motor light would come on indicating 1/2 power. dealer will takew care of this as well as turbo heatshield. mike
