I've got a 1995 318Ti with an M42 4 cylinder and here is my question.
The car runs perfectly in every way except this. When I first start it
up in the morning, the throttle is sluggish until I hit 3500 to 4 grand
on the tac. Then its perfect for the rest of the day. I had a 1991 318
with an M42 and it was the same for all 7 years I owned that car. Any
ideas? I don't think I need to fix anything, I'd like to just have an
Thank you in advance.
What I do, I take the cold air valve out and clean it with some cleaner. So
that the mechanism is not blocked by rubbish.
To find the thing look for a rubber tube from the airintake which passes the
throttle valve. In between is the cold air valve, it has 2 hoses in and 1
power cable in. Size around 10 cm long, 4 cm wide, but that's in my car.
