Question Anyone heard abuot this recall

http://auto-recalls.justia.com/conte...-318-1992.html

I got an 318is and something like they explain happened to my last night.

''IF THE THROTTLE PLATE IS PREVENTED FROM CLOSING, THEREIS AN INCREASE IN IDLE SPEED AS WELL AS SLOWER THAN NORMAL DECELERATION''

I've called the stealer and told me my cars weren't recall so does anyone have a clue of what can I do for that doesn't make it again... It's very scary!!!

... yeah I heard about the recall, I'm not sure if BMW is still honoring that old recall.

If your idle has increased check the obvious things first:

1 - Floor mat. If your matt is pushed forward a bit, it will increase your idle as it puts pressure on your pedal. (believe me, it happens to A LOT of people.)

2 - ICV, MAF, and o2 sensors can all cause increased idle too.

Thank you Justin,

About the floor matt, this is what I was thinking at first but I took it of and it's not that.

I'll check the Idle control Valve,Mass air flow and O2 sensor and clean the tb too. Wish it will "clean" my problem
