Question about 2006 BMW X5 3.0i
My car shakes when it idles. Not a violent shake, but i can feel it when it's ideling. There is no loss of power.
How can you say there is no loss of power when the car is not moving? You do have loss of power. What you have is a missfire in on of the cylinder. Diagnose the car and rectify. You could have injector or power problems.

hey man, i had the same problem with my 325i (clankins sound on cold start-up) i took it to the dealership to have a look they diagnosed it wrong telling me a pulley is cracked and quoted me a ridiculous amount to fix it so, i decided to have a look 4 myself and i found that a pulley was loose the pulley looks similar to that of a cog of a bike it has 1 bolt in the center, that bolt was loose so all i did was tighten it and it solved the clanking sound , give it a shot it might work for you.

SOURCE: Problem starting, Loss of Power
The flashing or "blinking" service engine light is indicating an over fueling condition that may damage the catalytic converter. There is a good possibility you have a defective or stuck injector, possibly ignition issue.
Take you car to Auto Zone and ask to have the codes read, they will do this for you at no charge, write the codes down and reply back.
Let me know.

Strange, it sounds like you've got a dead spark plug, but that would be continuous, not only in the morning, the other explanation could be that the engine management is injecting too much fuel, flooding the cylinder, and wetting the spark plug, which would explain why you need to wait 5 mins for the fuel to evaporate. Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes to reset the EMS, if that doesn't help, get to a workshop and let them check the EMS with a computer, the electric choke may be sending the wrong signals to the EMS. Hope this helps!

you did not state the yr of your model. A very typical problem in early e46 engines were in the Vanos. Does the car stutter or stall in cold weather starts? Does it hold it's idle? How is the power? DO you suffer power loss below 3000 rpm? These problems are related to a Vanos problem.....

The engine needs a correct air: gas ratio of 14.6:1 to perform.
You need to check out your Fuel distributor. The engine light is on since there is not a correct mixture then it reports through the Oxygen Sensor.
Other indication is at red light the engine is going to die.
You are losing power since there is not enough combustion efficiency due to incorrect Air gas ratio.
