My Ride: 04 bwm 325xi
My 04 325xi sputters

I have a 04 325xi when I start it it jerks a little and does that every time it idils its not so noticed when driving I think its my maf sensor but it doesnt say anything about it when I have it hooked up to the computer but it does say I have a major gas leak but I don't see it make a big change in my gas mileage also all my cylinders are miss firing and 2 of my o2 sensors need to b replaced I was told it might b one thing that is causing all this to poop up any idea what's wrong

When you "looked it up on the computer" that would be code(s) you cheeked out? Please post the code(s). I don't recall "major gas leak" as one of them.

My brain hurts.

If its sputtering because of misfires, that would kind of be your answer right there.
