    does this sound anything like what your problem is, less the stalling?

    This Service Information bulletin supersedes S.I. B11 02 05 dated May 2005.

    designates changes to this revision

    SUBJECT
    N62 Engine - Rough Idle, Misfire Faults after Cold Start


    MODEL
    E53 (X5 4.4 i/4.8is); E60, E63/64, E65/66 with N62 from 06/04 up to 02/05 production


    SITUATION
    Customer may complain of erratic engine idle speed lasting for approximately 20 seconds after a cold start. Check Engine Soon light may be illuminated and misfire faults for various cylinders (e.g. FC 2742, 2743, 2744, 2745, 2746, 2748, 2749, 274E) may be stored in the DME.

    CAUSE
    Incorrect tolerances and geometry of Valvetronic intermediate levers are causing uneven cylinder filling during the transitional cold start period (60 seconds after the engine has been started) when the Valvetronic system is switching from the initial 6 mm to a minimum 0.3/0.8 mm valve lift.

    CORRECTION
    On a customer complaint basis, and after performing diagnostic procedure described below, replace the Valvetronic intermediate levers.

    PROCEDURE

    Perform basic engine diagnosis (compression, ignition, fuel pressure, etc) to rule out other potential causes.

    Allow the engine to cool down.

    Connect GT1/DIS loaded with CD 44.0, or higher, to a cold vehicle (coolant temperature below 30 deg C) and from the Function Selection select: "Service Functions", "Drive", "Engine management ME9", "Test runs" and then "Tolerance test, intermediate lever".

    Start the engine and follow-up the test plan.

    Observe rough running values when idle speed stabilizes. If values are in excess of +/- 2.5 accompanied with noticeable engine vibration (and sometimes Check Engine Soon flashing), then remove valve covers on both banks.

    Look for the intermediate lever production date (stamped on the lever, next to the smaller roller contacting the eccentric shaft).

    If the production date is in the range between "04 180" and "04 324" (e.g. day 324 of the year 2004), then the whole set of intermediate levers (16) has to be replaced. The same classification of levers must be used when ordering the intermediate levers (classification number is stamped below production date). There are 5 classifications of levers used in the N62 engine.

    Note: In an individual cylinder head, all levers must have the same classification, but two different classification of intermediate levers may be used in one engine (e.g. bank 1: classification 2, bank 2: classification 3).

    Important: The lower production range of the affected intermediate levers is only an approximation. It is possible that levers produced prior to "04 180" (but not earlier then "03 363") may have certain deviations in tolerances.

    For Valvetronic intermediate lever replacement procedure, refer to RA 11 37 012 (bank 1) and RA 11 37 014 (bank 2), found in BMW TIS.

    IMPORTANT:

    Improved intermediate levers are currently available from our Parts Department.

    In the event of a reproducible customer complaint proceed with the diagnostic and repair procedure. There is no need to contact Technical Hotline.

    Have you carried out a cylinder leakage test on all 8 cylinders,
    Ive seen bore wear issues cause rough runing problems on the N62, basic check and simple to carryout, a leakage of 20% or less is classed as acceptable.
