    I have been having very minor idle problems. I recently cleaned intake system. Upon cleaning ICV I noticed about an 1/8th of its travel was free before the spring engaged. Is this something that could be causing problems. The idle is not that bad at the moment, but it was something that...

    I hoard parts. Time to share the wealth. All parts have been tested on my car and/or were pulled when working this winter. I am mostly an F/I lurker for tech info, so if you want itrader feedback history check M3forum (username: MisterEm). Back to the parts/price. I am in no rush. I have a...

    So guys my friend's x5 has been throwing a lot of codes. I already replaced the disa and cleaned out the icv and tb. I realized that there is a hose that is not connected to anything anymore. Could someone point me in the direction of it?

    I cleaned my ICV, TB and DISA one day, re-assembled everything to what I thought was near perfection. Keep in mind my ICV has 190k miles on it, it took two bottles of CRC throttle body to loosen it finally. I started it the next day, and a complete initial stall happened, it turned over but revs...

    I've got an idle that occasionally hunts between maybe 400 and 800 when the clutch is in approaching stops....after 5-10 seconds of this, it eventually lands at 700. Done some searching and this is apparently fairly common. I've got the ICV off and have it as clean as possible. It rotates...

    I should really just title this MORE CCV Tips because there are plenty out there. Anyway, I just did the CCV replacement job on an '03 330xi. I used the main DIY out there: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=643639. Figured I'd just post some more tips in case anyone else is...

    Hi There; In the quest to try and solve the idling issue on my 2002 325i one of the components replaced at 80k miles was the idle stabilization valve. Prior to this I had cleaned the device as seen in the DIY videos, replaced both sections of the Intake boot, made a visual inspection of the...

    After reading various post on how dirty the ICV could get, I decided to take a look at mine. While furiously working on removing the horribly positioned hose clamps on the throttle body intake boot, I noticed that the line that runs to to the ICV off of the main air intake was just hanging in...

    Hi, I've got a 2003 E46 318ti Compact and all's fine apart from one issue which I cannot fix. 3/4 times a week, (engine hot or cold) when pulling out of a junction the engine will stutter and choke resulting in a stall. Starting back up everything seems fine and there's no stutter. Sometimes...

    Hi, everybody. I have been reluctant to post a new thread, as I don't want to repost something that's been posted myriad times before. Plus, I don't yet have fault codes, if there are any (see below). I've spent hours searching and reading, however, and I'm not satisfied that I've seen my exact...

    Please help. 2001 330i, manual. Started stalling, engine light came on. found tear in small boot to idle control valve, replaced all boots. No more fault codes. But, when engine gets warm still loses idle when I release clutch at higher rpms(e.g. depress clutch pedal at 3000 rpm)...

    About 6 months ago, I started noticing rough idling and a slight hesitation when mildly accelerating from a stop. Last week, on acceleration, it really started hesitating from a stop. Got a CEL and it was Idle Speed Control Valve Stuck Closed (P1501). Removed ICV, cleaned and replaced...
