Sure, I can help. Since the check engine light is on, you need to scan for the fault codes. That will tell you why your having an issue. Sounds like a vacuum leak to me. Post the codes back here so we can help further.


Tom knows his stuff, do what he says first. I had the same issue with my E90 (2008), but without ever having the code/check engine light. It turned out the intermittently rough idle was caused by a bad coil pack (ignition coil). All 6 were original and replaced, car had 140,000 miles at the time they were replaced, which fixed the issue. I also would not rule out bad spark plug(s).
