The M52tu motor found in your vehicle is known to have poor cold idle qualities when the VANOS seals are shot. Had the same problem on my old 323 and numerous customer cars. Does the car do that when it is warmed up or only when cold?

If only when cold then there is a 95% chance it is the VANOS seals. 60 bucks and easy to rebuild. Somewhere on my YouTube page I think there is a video of my 323 both pre and post VANOS rebuild
