I have a 1992 bmw 325ic with E-30 body. I was having problems with the idle, specially when at a stop. I replaced the airflow meter, idle control, air intake hoses, spark plugs and fuel filter.

My 2004 Ford Expedition 4.6l has a rough idle and occasionally backfires. My check engine came on and I had it diagnosed and it said it was the O2 sensors. I changed all 4 sensors and the mass air. I searched online and was suggested that it was the PCV valve which would send a false O2 sensor code, but just found out on fixya that the expedition doesn't have a pcv valve. Any suggestions on what it could be? I have changed the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, O2 sensors and mass air.
