Question about 2001 BMW 325
Car runs fine for first 15-30 minutes and then it dies. Usually it dies when the car is idling or in low RPM. When running in higher RPM it seems to run for a lot longer. At first thought it might be a fuel issue. I changed the fuel filter. However, someone sd it might be an electrical or sensor issue. Any ideas? Let me know if you need more info.
Coil? Ignition control Module ?

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
