ok this was my problem or the symptoms that my car was having just few minutes ago, my car would bogg and jerk and felt like it was losing power between 1800-2300 rpms than after that it would just go freely like nothing happend, so wat i did was take out the ICV and sprayed the the internals with thootle body cleaner, repeatedly until all the residue coming out was clear, then i inserted the throotle body cleaner through the intake boot that connects to the airbox or more like the AFM, then started tha car and sprayed repeatedly until satisfied or wat u think is adaquet(spelling correction pls lol), hope this helps a couple of you e30 guys, im still a newbie but just though i would share some of my experiences with it :D, HAPPY NEW YEARS GUYS, CHEERS!!!!!! *par-t* *wave*

Vaccum leaks, could be your afm as well........When was the last time you did a major tune up: ie Wires, plugs, cap/rotor?

Don't just assume it is the ICV, there is many other areas to look at......
