I have a 03 BMW Z4 and the code was P1344 misfire on cyl 2, but now when I drive it and come to a stop it is idling a little rough, any suggestions ?
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 2 years ago
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
you have asked for "any suggestions"
my suggestions are you check for an intake air leak, failed crankcase ventilation system, bad plugs/coils or low fuel pressure
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

I replaced the plugs, but I am not getting any codes.
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 2 years ago
Please do not forget to CLICK ON a positive rating
I did not know you replaced the plugs as you did not inform me of this. If that is the case then disregard that suggestion
I know you are not getting any codes, I answered as such. These are the most common things that would cause rough idle, per your request for suggestions. As the question has been answered, please kindly CLICK ON a positive rating
