95 318is cold running observations
So it goes like this:
Since it's been cooling off, when the temperature starts to hit around +5C in the morning, when I would start the car it would start no problem. It revs up to 1800rpm then starts to settle into the idle rpm of around 700-1000rpm.
Now what will happen is when it goes to settle it'll putter out. When I put my foot on the gas and hold it at 1800rpm for a few sec's it then settles to standard idle and is fine. It always starts, no problem.
When it got colder I have had to hold for longer until it stays. Ideas?
As well when I am stopped at light there are times it idles at 1100 to 900 rpm. 70% of the time my rpm idle is 700-750rpm.
Appreciate the input as to what you think is my issue.
