: 525 I rough idle when first started

I have a 1992 525I that runs a little rough when it first starts. Looking for what to check?

are you throwing any codes?

I would first clean the ICV. Its a very easy process.

All of my M50 engines eventually did that and each time it was just the black rubber boot from the air box to the throttle body or TB to manifold. Look for tears between the accordion flex areas. :thumbup:
