e46 missing cold start & driving

hey guys my e46 325ci has been playing up for awhile

Cold start it would miss fire, run rough, idle funny, makes pop and splatter sounds. the moment i turn it off and back on it warms up fine

when driving abit out of no where it would run rough, idle funny/miss but can still rev all the way thru to redline and drive, but when i turn the car off and back on its gone. and may pop back up after abit of driving.

there is no engine lights on the dash. it also seems if i give the car a hard trashing constant it doesnt do it, but that could be it just not happening, it happens randomly

Re: e46 missing cold start & driving

Hey mate

Can you get codes read? Best place to start... also, look up a user named jfoj. Read the links in his Sig. They will help diagnose the problem.
