    When engine is cold car idles with no problem, when it is warm it idles normally then revs rise to about 3000rpm then back to normal and this happens constantly. I have tried to look this problem up but cannot find the reason. I would be very grateful for any advice.

    Hi all, So I've had the turbo renewed and all was going well but it appears I've still got an issue. If I leave the car to ideal and then rev the car or pull off there's a lot of smoke. I'm edging towards bluish smoke which would be oil but it may be just white. Given the turbo has been...

    So I've had the engine light come on the day after I got my car when I started it up on a cold damp morning and the idle speed dropped. It drove absolutely perfectly once warm but light stayed on. When I had a new key programmed the guy cleared the error so the light was gone. This morning...

    Hello, I had idling problems (stalling when cold). The garage disconnected the MAF which cured the idling problem, but there is sometimes hesitancy when accelerating. i bought a new one from euro car parts (a HASS) fitted it, but the idling issue has returned. I am at a loss and would appreciate...

    Dear bimmerforum, Car would take 3-4 tries to start up and then immediately stall if i didn't keep the revs consistent and between 1 and 2.5k. There would be loss in power while driving. Parts changed to try and cure (btw no eml light and nothing on diagnostics): exh and inlt camshaft sensors...
