94 740i 80k.. Rough idle.. white smoke.. mil light.. stomp 1222, 1213
hey people.. I was wondering if somebody could point me in the right direction.. I perchased a 740i around 8 months ago.. car ran perfect (seems like) up until the temperature dropped over here.. I ve been reading the boards and im a little confused at where to start.. should I start by replacing o2 sensors??.. or is it more likely the OSV valve?? vacuum test?? any help would be appreciated :dunno:

Lol, for E32's yeah it does. Could you explain your situation better by any chance? Before anything start trouble shooting. First with vacuum lines and the intake. Then move forward from there to ignition system and then to fuel.

thanks C, youre right.. turned out it was an intake leak.. I found it spraying starter fluid at intake points and listening to idle.. it was a 5 dollar gasket.. geesh thank god I didnt go for the o2 sensors like i was originally going to do:thumbup:
