I have a 96328is, the engine light comes on and off at will


Asked by Dec 06, 2014 at 05:52 PM about the 1996 BMW 3 Series 318is

Question type: General

Wen the light comes on.. The car idles a little rough but the car still runs really good.
Should I be afraid it's gonna stall at a red light cuz of the rough idle?....I'm not a car guy
the motor just turned to 120k. Can anyone help?
