Rough Idle/Hard starting
 
This is my first time posting so plz be nice :) j/k I have 2 problems that i have been dealing with for 2 years now and noone seems to figure it out... i took car to bmw and they replaced the temperature sender that plugs into thermostat and they also replaced o2 sensor cause code 1222 was coming up so they said it fixed it but now after spending 1500 for bmw not to fix a damn thing im still stuck with same problmes. I believe i narrowed it down to fuel related cause i replaced all ignition components. Monday my fuel rail clips come in and im replacing injectors and other ideas that these 2 problems pose? also the exhaust has a rich smell to it? tells me injectors are leaking.. plz post with other ideas on what u think Thanks for your time Derek

a cracked engine mount doesnt really cause a rough idle unless your idle is very rough to begin with. check your air flow and ICV.

well...
 
well i replaced the icv. the bentley manual has a test for the icv and the current is fine on both the plug and the unit itself but when u unplug the plug from the icv its suppposed to raise 2000rpm's but it dosent when u plug it in the car almost seems like its going to stall.
