Hi! The problem will surely be the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF is faulty then rpm acts unusual. I strongly suggest that you have it replaced for this will break sooner or later. The ups and downs of the rpm is a sign that it will reach it 's break point. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

1996 bmw 328i has bin sitting for three years what are the first things I should do before I start it


I would change the oil, disconnect the coil or fuel pump and crank the engine for several minutes to let the oil pump work.
Put a few gallons of fresh gas in the tank, and see what happens.
You may have to run that gas out and then replace the fuel filter.
If it starts ok, just let it idle for several minutes before you raise RPM. Listen for noises and see if the cooling system works.
There is a chance you may have to change the trans fluid and filter after you try to drive it.
And after driving a few miles, be sure and check the brakes and all of the engine hoses for leaks.

When cold in mornings when back up then shift into


Every car needs a heating engine time specially when its cold, I recomend like about 5 to 10 minutes after you start engine and before you change from P to D. If you try to start the engine first time in the morning, it's cold outside and you immediately go on run you are going to have this trouble every time. Every engine has it's operational standard temperature a 5 to 10 minutes working engine, car stopped, may guaranty this standard temperature and optimal function conditions, and also keeps a longer life of your car.

Good luck
