ROUGH IDLE

2005 Audi A4 • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 90,000 miles

I have a 2005 Audi A4 and it is idling rough. When idling it almost has a slight rattling sound, I have heard that sound in other cars especially German ones. What does it possibly mean?

Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:
