Customer Question

My 2003 540i w 140k mi has new NGK plugs, new valve cover gaskets, new fuel filter, new coils & boots. Fuel pressure tests good. Running very rough before new coils. Much better now, but still bogs and bucks at 1500 RPM & up. Accelerates great. Still feel a soft "miss". Don't think it's the PCV... no change when I pull the dipstick out. What's up?

Hello , has the check engine light gone off ? Was there any codes ? The first thing that comes to mind is torn air boots for the intake but usually you have a check engine light.
