View Full Version : cold start problem

07-18-2004, 08:10 PM
Recently my ICV decided to quit so I did the penny trick and now it idles perfectly at around 750, but when I start the car cold it idles for about 3 seconds and then dies. If I give it gas right away, it will rev up but as soon as I let off it dies. Continues this until it warms up. Temp sensor gone??? Need some suggestions. Anyone ever have this happen to them? I work a lot and don't really have time to play around with this too much.

BTW 84 318i with m10

you mught have a vaccum leak. im not sure about M10s having coolant temp sensors. go to www.roadfly.org and check out the BMW E30 forum. we can give ya a hand.
