    I'm new to this forum but I've found such great advice here in the past that I needed to post some questions. I have a 2002 325i and about 2 weeks ago, upon start up, there was a very rough, cough, idle and sluggish acceleration. Felt like a vacuum leak or coil misfire. I looked under the hood...
