Check your vacuum hoses and also check your intake tube, my 325 i did same and found out was just one vacuum hose and i had a rip in my intake tube coming off the throttle body.

Its most likely a timing problem. unfortunatly this can only be done by a computer! So bring it to a dealership or somene in the know with a diagnostic machine.

My '99 323 ci's air blower fan became loud so I turned the fan off. It won't go back on.

Replace resistor pack. a four prong thing. Google: resistor pack 3 series e36. When they go bad the fan only goes to fast mode and can blow the fuse. Check fuse, relay, but resistor pack 1st.

Hello I own a 1998 323i se bmw. Air intake hose that leads to throttle body was cracked but replaced hoping to fix fact that car stalls after idling for about 45 sec. this has not fixed the problem but...

Your problem is still consistent with an air leak. If the mass airflow valve or the idle air control valve had failed, it should set an error code in the computer.
I would look again at all the air tubing, including the elbow over the throttle valve and the tubing to the idle air control. While you are at it, get some mass airflow valve cleaner and clean the MAF, the throttle valve, and the idle air control valve.

I finally fixed this problem!  Not sure if it will work for everyone but it did for me.  My new mechanic said there is an electronic 10 pin connector hooked up to the throttle body and mine had 2-3 pins that weren't making a good connection....THAT'S IT!
