Ok this may sound like a stupid thing but my 1999 e46 loads up anytime below 1000 rpm. Plus it acts like this.
A. I get a sound like a valve tappet sound and when this is happening the car runs ok at 1000rpm plus but if I let it sit at idle at a light after 15 secs it loads up. Then I have to restart and get it above 1000 rpm.
Also it does sounds a bit like a vacuum lead but...
B. sometimes it doesn't make the valve tappet sound but has very low end power and still will load up at idle.
original error was misfire bank 2, 3
Done Crank, Cam sensor, O2, plugs, two coils on those cycl.
