Exclamation Clutch vibrates at friction point. SES Code P0013

Hey everyone ,

My car wouldn't start so I took it to an indy place and as it turned out my prediction was right. Fuel pump went bad. They replaced it and it ran well for about 3 hours. After that, the SES light went on and I noticed the clutch would vibrate at the friction point (like the engine was running roughly) and the car was in 1st and starting to move. Almost felt like the car wanted to turn off or something. Once the car is rolling it seems decent but i feel it when I'm changing gears, specifically from a stop into 1st. Getting poor gas mileage too now, for an M3.

Not sure if that was related to work that they did, but I am taking it back to them tomorrow. I fear that they may say it was "another problem" not related to work they did, fix the original problem, and wind up charging me for new work.

The ODB code is P0013 and according to the AutoZone printout, it has something to do with the B Camshaft, something about VANOS, and short-circuit. But after doing some research online, I read that it might have to do with the fuel vapor valve malfunction. Is that in anyway possibly related to a replaced fuel pump?

If not, what could it be?

Thanks you guys.

Sounds like VANOS/ Valve train problems with your car having, poor fuel economy, low power, and a rough idle.
