Question RPM problems, staying below 500

98 328is--

I started the car last night, started normal, then the rpms just dropped all the way down, car started shaking (due to low rpms)
and car shut off. this happend a couple times. i drove it home not really stopping all the way. started it this morning and now the rpms seem to be at about 3-400, when they are usually around 8 or so (and forget about using the a/c) the car would shut off.

This happend one other time before, but it went away fairly shortly.

What are some things it could be.. i have read about the ICV which i can check, but the rpms are not really fluctuating, just staying put. i want to be able to fix this myself.. ANY SUGGESTIONS
