318 wont idle

hi i have a 1996 BMW 318is, the problem it is having is that it wont idle at all. the car starts and runs but only when i put my foot to the floor. also if i let of the accelerator the car stalls out instantly. the crank and cam sensors have been replaced, and still no idle, and when it starts it wont rev past 2000 rpm even with my foot to the floor.

i hope someone may know whats going on with it.

How about the ICV? Maybe have a look at the breather pipes too...

I would also recommend checking your ICV, or idle control valve.

Here's a Do-it-Yourself on cleaning your ICV
