    Can someone familiar with this issue comment? What is happening to my engine is that at idle it sits perfectly at 600RPM like normal, then every approx 10-15 seconds the engine shutters for a fraction of a second, drops to 500RPM and then jumps back to 600RPM. This process keep repeating...

    Hi, my E90 has eh SULEV N51 motor and I have been having minor idle/hiccup issues. Cold or hot, doesn't seem to matter and doesn't last long. The issue sounds like VANOS to me, but I installed NEW OE solenoids and the car had the VANOS gears replaced by the recall issued at 75k, currently at...

    My 2006 325i E90 started idling rough, 105k+ miles so I decided to replace spark plugs and coils. It is still idling weird! I'm wondering if the computer needs to adjust to new parts? The old plugs were in bad shape and the coils, I have no way to test them but they were originals. What is the...

    My automatic 2002 325i shakes when idling. Popped the hood and saw the whole engine shaking. Doesn't matter if it's in drive, park, or neutral. Goes away immediately when moving or when I just rev the engine in park or neutral. Turning on the AC tends to make it worse. So far I've replaced all...
