3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
I have an 89 325i. I find the throttle doesn't return at times when the AC is on. When I go to shift the rpms stay at 2500 rpm, if I turn off the ac the idle returns to normal and the throttle behaves. Any ideas what is going on?:
Is the idle high when the AC is on? Is so there is probably a mechanism that bumps the idle level when the AC is on to stop the engine from stalling at idle. As a guess I'd say that setting is too high, or at least causing something to stick.
