View Full Version : E36 near stalling/stalling on sudden stops

09-11-2005, 10:41 PM
My car wants to almost stall or sometimes it DOES stall when I come to a sudden enough stop. Especially if the sterring wheel is turned. ???? Go figure.

Any way, any one out there experience these same problems? If so, what was the fix?

Keep in mind I have already read a lot posts about this, and I have cleaned my throttle body, changed all of my vacuum lines, changed my ICV, inspected and cleaned the AFM, cleaned the air temp sensor.

(Just FYI: my car is auto trans)

So, what's left?????

the idle control valve has a sliding pendulum-like flap inside which swings open and closed. I'm convinced myself that sometimes when i come to a halting stop that it's swinging it back and forth causing me to have a jumpy idle under those conditions. It's possible the same is happening to you, but other than that i'm stumped as to why it would stall all-together (especially after reading what you've already tested/changed out)
