Question Help! 3-5 sec. hesitation at traffic light

This site was great when I had my X-5. Please help me with my E39. While at a traffic light I had a 3-5 sec. hesitation the return to normal idle. That evening when leaving the office upon start up a very slight rough idle then fine. Any ideas.

Thanks,
RJ

Sounds like a typical idle control valve problem. Take it out and try cleaning it.
