Rough Idle on an E90
Hey guys,

So my dad E90 had a terrible idle on start up and now refuses to turn over at all now, just swings. Before towing the car to a mech I would like to know has anyone experienced such a problem? What could it be?

See the video attached link below and any advice on potential culprits will be appreciated.

RE: Rough Idle on an E90
If you are handy/DIY guy then just have someone run diagnostics on the car.

You probably looking at either a sensor, or highly probably one of the 4 or 6 coils went on the car and causes the needle to jump like that.

Just get the car diagnose and take it from there, we will help where possible.
