Well it goes like this:
I went 45 miles to dinner tonight and made it there fine.
I then left and started home, I stopped about 5 miles from home and got a alka seltzer and the car was fine, When I left I got on it pretty hard , ( I didnt get over 5000 rpm I am sure of it) When I turned into the drive way the car was missing on one cylinder"it feels like more but im sure the car would run if two were down" I replaced the coils and plugs about 3 months ago BMW coils and boshe plugs. I havent got to the plugs yet because it was very very dark and I was working with a street light, Is it possible to foul a plug or is it somthing else need to be looking for. Also, The 1992 M50 525I has a chain not a belt so it generaly wouldn't have jumped time would it?
I drove the car and it cant be noticed above 3000 rpm ( this is why I feel it hasnt jumped time and I have not heard any metal noises and lost any oil and also the car is not smoking at all and has never used any oil in between oil changes.
Any advice would be helpful.
