Hi Guys,

Can somebod help me?

The engine is waving when idle. The idle RPM is not static... I check the codes of the computer but it doesn't give me anything just 1441 telling me that the car is alright

I have a '92 325i

How can I fix this and what should I check? I had the engine teared appart to change the gaskets and also the sparks and everything. It was waving before and now after the job
was done it is still doing it.

Any idea?
