Hi All,

I have 2002 bmw 325i.
Need your help to pinpoint the problem.

Here are the symptoms of the problems:

- vibrating at idle speed. my idle speed is 1K rmp
- after warm up 2 minutes still the same problem
- shaking / vibrating also can hear rumbles noise
while driving highway at 65mph/2500 rmp

If you don't have any white smoke and if you've recently changed the PCV then it sounds like a bad coil.
