    Cranks but wont idle

    my 1994 325i "out of the blue" will crank but not idle. It will run rough, backfire and "miss" if you try to keep it idling by giving it gas. Changed the plugs-still same. Help!!

    Did you check to see if any codes have been logged. If not you can go to most any auto parts store and they will check free of charge. That will give you/us some place to start. Also does this happen weather the engine is cold or warm?
