Your Ride: Hartge H26 & E34 535i
E34 Idle Issues
Looking For Help..........
I Have A 91 535i With Electronic Throttle. When I Start The Car It Will Idle Smooth For A Little ( 2-3 Minutes) Then Out Of Nowhere It Will Start Reving By Itself Form 100-2500 Rpm's When Ever It Feels Like. The Eml Light Is On And When I Put It In Drive The Car Wants To Leap Fwd As The RPMs Just To 3k Every Couple Of Seconds. The Car Will Drive But There Is No Power At All. After Approx 1/4 Mile At Best The Asc Light Comes On And The Gas Pedal Goes Dead And The Car Eventually Comes To A Stop.
When The Car Is At Idle And Free Reving On It's Own The Guy Who Owned The Car Before Use The Wack The Throttle Body And The Car Would Go Back To A Smooth Idle For A Bit( Guess He's No Mechanic). I Changed The Throttle Body Control Motor But The Car Still Does The Same.
Any Help Would Be Appreciated.
