In Reply to: Rough Idle after Head Gasket Replacement (90-535i) posted by DJDolan on November 05, 1999 at 19:44:24:
Am I reading this right? Are you saying you (or a mechanic) replaced the head gasket and you didn't check the internals (pistons, valves, ...) of the engine? That would defenitely be a missed oportunity on a 9 year old vehicle. If the mechanic found some carbon build up inside the engine, don't you think he should have told you before replacing the head?
