Exclamation Help Please!

Hi i'm new to this, but i've been experiencing some problems with my 1986 bmw 325 es any help would be gladly appreciated (=

I just recently got the clutch replaced, and this probably has nothing to do with the clutch but my engine revs constantly it happens after it's been driving for about 5 minutes it stops sometimes but even when i stop it still revs. I need to get this fixed asap does anyone know what it is and how much the cost would range to get this fixed?

Thanks sooo much

ICV, (idle air control valve) could be clogged, you can try cleaning it out. Relatively easy procedure
or buying a new one ($128.99)

The O2 sensor doesn't come into play until the car warms up, which could be five minutes or so depending on multiple factors. Does it do it while driving? I would assume that it doesn't until you come to a stop light or stop sign. I am 99.9% sure that a new O2 sensor would fix your issue.
