This was weird, last night I was pulling into a sidestreet and slowed down to a stop and as I slowed I heard this horrible grinding sound and the rpm gauge was at 0 but the engine was somehow still running. As it didn't sound good I turned it off, then turned it back on and it made the grinding sound for a second and then the revs shot up like it normally would starting and then it was fine. Drove home without another issue.

Any idea what this might be? I have a suspect ICV which I'm going to replace soon, but I struggle to imagine it causing a horrible grinding sound like this. It sounded a bit like the grinding I sometimes get when steering at low speeds without enough revs.

Car is a 96 E39 540.
