Question about 2002 BMW 318
I have just had my engine rebuilt on my bmw 318 2002, when I start it sometimes it wont start straight away, and I have to let it warm up for five minutes then it drive it and then it drives really great, but if I don't let it warm up first and put it in drive it will stall any ideas please
SOURCE: my bmw 328i misfire?
If u don't have a check engine light try this procedure to fix it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

You MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow) is dirty and most likely on its way out. The next time this happens just unhook the connector and you should be able to drive the car in safe mode.
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

at the engine, there is a small sensor that helps increase or decrease the rpm of the engine. Perhaps yours is soo low, that when you slow down, it's almost about to stop.
The other problem could be the airfilter sensor. If it's not properly fixed or if the sensor itself is a bit damaged, than the engine is not getting enough air and so, let's the engine almost go off.
Please give further details if this has not helped.

Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.
