hi all new to site. my name is mike i have a 05 325xi auto w/ steptronic. i have a problem with it at idle, it jumps around about 100rpm. only when its warm though, but when cold it idles a little higher then normal. if i let it sit at idle for about 5 mins it starts to misfire and has no power at all. this will last for about 5 mins as long is im driving. if i stop while it is like this it will stall out. can anyone give me some advice???? it has a bad air pump but it has been bad for long b4 this started happening. thanks
One more thing before we move on to the individual components is - If ALL the breather pipework and connections are solid, make sure the oil-level and oil-pressure are fine, if not, then the recirculated warm oil fumes are not returning through the intake as they should !! When was her last service?

i found that the breather hose going to the valve cover is cracked at the 90 elbow going down to the ccv valve. im going to replace all of those hoses and go from their. will let u know if that fixed it or not. she was just serviced about 2,000 miles ago, everything was fine except for the secondary air pump is bad but i knew that, it was bad for over a year.
I am a new member in this forum. I live in Puerto Rico. I do have a 2006 BMW 325i, to which I replaced the gearshift steptronic recently. However, it is not reflected in the dashboard. A BMW mechanic told me that it needs to be reprogrammed in order to work as designed. He also said that it may take from one hour, or, up to two days in order to get it done right.
I wander if this a true statement or if they want me to be out the shop. If any body in this Forum could shed some light on this matter, it will be greatly appreciated !!
