Engine Start issues... help!

Hi Guys,

Bought a 318is yesterday, love the car it runs like a dream.. once its started.

Basically when you first start the car in the morning it will turn over and ignite but the revs will increase and decrease until it stalls, if you add a little gas it's fine and drives perfectly and doesn't cut out at all after that point. This kinda happens when the car is warm as well, but it wont stall????

What the hell can this be?? o2 sensor? or plugs? it had new plugs 5k ago. Any help guys would be apprecitated.

Many thanks.
AH

Gator is an unknown quantity at this point
Look in the FAQ Maintenance section. Furious has an article on unstable idle.
