Mein Auto: 2001 325i
BMW325i Hard starts, stalling and rough idle

My 325I is not starting, needs to be jumped than stalls and rough idles. Replaced ignition coils and checked the spark plugs. When I switched the ignition coils and spark plugs around to see if they would make a difference, the cylinder closest to back of engine did not effect the idle when unplugged. All other cylinders when unplugged made a difference. CEL on. Codes are P0313,P0300, P1345,P1353 and P0455. On highways around 70 mph sounds like going over cattle grates.
Any suggestions of what do next? Super sad cause I love this car.

Really need your help I want to work on it this weekend!
