Angry 328i misfire SOMEONE HELP!!!

Hey guys, I'm new to the site and have an issue that I hope you guys can help me fix. Ok so I started my car like any other day and my cel came on and my rpms would jump from 1000 to 300 and back and forth and when i stop it feels like it wants to stall,so I hooked my scanner and it was reading cylinder 3 misfire. I changed the plugs, no luck then the coil and still nothing. So then maybe an injector so I switched number 2 with 3 to see if it follows and still nothing. So then I thought maybe it was the icv took it out cleaned the compsite and still nothing. After i let it run for awhile while i was looking for a possible vacuum leak i pluged the scanner in again it disnt read number 3 but instead 1 and 6.My last resort was my dme so I took it out and inspected it and cleaned the harness and still nothing. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!

It can't hurt to check the full length of the air intake for cracks; these can cause such issues.

Spraying starting fluid around the intake system will change the idle speed and reveal leaks that you cannot see. There may be a safer way but I don't know it. And the starting fluid won't leave a residue like WD40 does. Jetsam

What did you change the plugs with? The E36 is pretty finicky when it comes to plugs.

For an engine to run you need the following:
1. Air
2. Fuel
3. Spark
4. Compression

Which one are you missing? Get it pressure tested just to be safe.
