Cool 316i SE Auto erratic idle

Hi all,

bought a used 2003 automtaic 316i se - drives beautifully, except that when in P or R - the idle is erratic and misfires. Duirng driving everything is fine and no issues but issue returns when I get to my destination and need to use P or R.

Any guidance appreciated.

If its at or near 100k it could be the spark plugs going even if it that wasn't the problem, it doesn't hurt to get it changes at that mileage. I would also check you tire pressure and rotate the tires if you haven't recently (within the past 3k miles). If you are still experiencing this problem it's probably a motor mount or the EGR valve.
