My Ride: 2000 BMW 323ci
e46 323ci low on power rough idle

Ok I have a 2000 BMW 323ci 5 speed and recently it has started throwing a code that says it's the secondary air pump and the car has a horrible idle at the moment cold or warm and has awful power the RPMs aren't limited or anything but the worst power is down low mostly like it's spitting and sputtering I just have replaced the plugs with DENSO Double Platinums Well when I swap the coils for cylinders 5 and 2 I get a misfire code on cylinder 2 but if I swap them back it goes away...I'm not sure if the whole coil thing has anything to do with the way the car is running but as of now there's only the 2nd air pump code will that alone make my car run like garbage because it literally happened all of a sudden any help is appreciated...
