Welcome to the werkz,
Has this issue just started, or been getting progressively worse?
Have you checked for dirty/contaminated fuel?
Also look for vacuum leaks.


Riding in style

Odds are your Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) has gone bad. The IACV is what keeps the car idling. This happened in my E36 and the car would stall out immediatley unless i kept the throttle depressed.
