Think again, my 12valveV6 tends to shake a bit during idle. Bugged me from the
start. I'm hoping the so-far non existant fuel injector recall will have some
positive effect on said "rough" idle. Oh and I did check my plug wires last
summer, they were all within 500 ohms of each other, spark plugs were new last
summer too(OEM Bosch tri-electrode).

Yes, definitely pull codes!

Just a note, my 90S now has over 100K miles and is still pulling strong, rough
idle and all, the only times my check engine light came on was just prior to a
temp sender failure and when I had low coolant (long story, happy ending). BTW,
my water pump locked at approx 80K, but I caught it before the timing belt
