rubber pipe , its at the back under the pollen filter , comes as a
double pipe one fat one thin , fat one is for air flow , thin one water ,
both for cooling the engine. The fat one was actually split , causing
my engine to idle bad , so i replaced the part , engine idle is fine but
now i gt that noise , and i get air suction when i take oil dipstick
out while engine is running , so i am guessing something is not right
but dk what
I had the same on a customers car, 5 years and $$$ in a dealer later I was given a shot, the factory mis fitted a manifold gasket and it was sucking in air, I used a length of screenwash pipe to listen under the inlet manifold and found it.
check the airflow meter it may be stuck and make sure the electrical connection to it is not loose and also check the hose leading to it are not loose or cracked they tend to crack at the bottom where you cannot see it unless you remove it and check
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.
