2006 330i low idle/stall condition 6-speed manual

120,000miles, runs great most of the time. No check-engine lights revs and runs great.

only problem I have is when coasting to a stop light etc, if I push the clutch in and slip it into neutral, the revs drop very low, and it occasionally stalls. It seems like the idle in general is very low, causing it to be a bit rough to start moving (takes a little extra revving when releasing clutch).

I've changed the plugs, but it's setting no trouble codes, and it runs great once you get up to speed.

Any obvious things to look for?? Which sensors would effect idle on these engines???

Have you had your oil separator (under intake manifold) changed? Those hoses can crack over time and cause issues.
