Mein Auto: 1973 BMW
My BMW 1973 2002 4 cylinder 2 dr

Without any sign my 1973 2002 BMW ceased to idle. It starts ok and drives under power smoothly, however when I come to a stop sign it will not idle and dies. Any thoughts and comments on where to look before I start a painful and expensive trial and error process.

Probably the idle jet should be cleaned.
