Anyone have a diagnosis for a 1998 328 with 98k miles....upon initial ignition the front of the car shakes a little then stops. Once the car is in motion, or upon starting for the rest of the day, it's fine!! Fuel filter??? Thanks!

Mine started doing that the other day too. It idled roughly and shook the car upon starting, but after driving down the block it was fine. However, now my car won't start at all - It'll only crank over once. I'm getting it looked at tommorow. Hopefully yours won't go the same way mine did.

As for the cause, I initially thought the spark plugs or ignition coils but I just changed them all last month.
