Hey guys, I recently got an E36 that ran just fine. I did a tune up (New plugs, air filter, oil filter, stuff like that). The spark plug tunnels were filled to the top with oil because the gaskets were old, so I replaced the valve cover gaskets and cleaned it all up.
So i went ahead and turned it on and it ran great for about 20 minutes and then the idle got very lumpy, almost as if it has a misfire. When its in gear (automatic) it only idles at about 500 now. And the exaust sounds more like a Hog than a BMW also. Its not consistant either, it will idle ok for a second, then crappy.
BTW its a 93 325i
