Mein Auto: 2004 BMW 530i
Check Engine Light / RPM Fluctuation

2004 BMW 530i. 62,000 miles. Purchased car 4 months ago. Driving today (about 40 mph), check engine light came out, RPMs started fluctuating, and engine felt like it was stuttering. Stopped the car. Restarted and had no problems.

What do you think the check engine light + RPM fluctuation signifies? And if you can identify the potential problem, what's the best fix?

I appreciate everyone's help.

Not sure, but have it checked it out.

I recently had a check engine light coming out, car experienced no issue. It turned out to be a stuck open thermostat. Total repair was a little more than $500.
