SOURCE: Idle problem

I've had an Idling problem with my 1993 318i E36. First, I would suggest getting the fault codes for your car. There are places where you can have these codes scanned for free such as autoparts stores. The fault codes will tell you which components aren't working properly. Based on my fault codes, I replaced the Idle Control Valve, the oxygen sensor, the camshaft position sensor, and the air intake boot. I could easily install all of these parts in less than an hour. All of these replacements cost me a total of about $200 and solved the problem completely. Granted, I did this myself. Look forward to the dealer charging you over $500 if you have as many problems as I did.

1985 318I bmw idle is high what do I need to do


A high idle could be due to many things but a major cause is a vacuum leak causing too much air to enter the fuel system which in turn causes the computer to overcompensate with fuel. Take it to an auto parts chain store where they will do a diagnostic scan for free and see if any error codes are present.

1992 auto 318i bmw judders at low revs


Hello there

If you drive an automatic and it starts to judder at low speeds than that means you transmission isn't down shifting as the speed is reduced. In the first instance you should get your transmission oil changed.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.
