Asked by Sep 29, 2017 at 09:31 AM about the BMW 5 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bmw 530i 2003. When I start engine and
indicator light would come on shortly
showing 5 out of  6 bars and has been
gradually going down. Now 2 out of 6 bars
show and car has a rough idle.
The indicator is on the left lower side of
dashboard
Is this indicating only two valves are firing?
Car  has been running good until now
