I bought this car in September for 8900$, it has 120000 miles on it. Here is the question, whenever i stop the car during the redlight, i could feel that the car is shaking a little bit and the rpm is about 500-600 ( between 0 to 1*1000). Can anyone tell me what is wrong with it.<br>thank you

I have changed plugs, set the valve clearance, run injector cleaner through the gas, had the compression checked,it is good and it still shakes at idle. Anybody else have this problem? I am sure they were not like that when new.

I was told by the dealer that it's normal, but i think it's probably a motor or tranny mount. Ive got about 105K on mine. Whatever answers you get, please fwd 'em over to the e34 board. Thanks!<p>ron

I am sure they were not like that when new.<p>I also have a '90 735i and there is some roughness to the idle. I bought the car in Sept. '98 and just took it in for an inspection I. The idle is somewhat smoother, but I was advised to clean the throtle body. 113,000 miles.
