I've got an issue with my 1.8 E36.
The idle keeps dropping off and then coming back, sometimes stalling before it does.
Also the revs are limited to about 4,500 in 3rd, 4,800 in 2nd etc. However, if you take it up to this limit point then change up, it takes a while for the power to kick back in
I've checked all the usual for the idling (ICV, vacuum leak etc), and think that maybe both the problems are related to the MAF meter.
Does anyone know if this is a likely cause and also, is there any way of checking that the air flow meter is working?
