BMW E36 3 Series Idle Control Valve Cleaning DIY
That issue is disturbing, especially for those of us that want our cars to run perfectly smooth. However, this issue can easily be fixed with an operation that takes less than an hour to complete and requires minimal tools.
So, when you get some spare time and decide that it's time to put an end to all that stuttering and hesitation you've been feeling at stop lights and every time you just left your car idling, follow this DIY and you should be done in no time.
Of course, because of the location of the ICV some people with big hands might have a problem with working in those tight spaces. That might require taking out the intake manifold and that is a bit tricky so do be careful before setting off. Hope this helps!
