i'm having major idle problems with my 95 325i. the idle is very low and causes my car to sputter even stall if i don't keep my foot on the throttle . i've changed the spark plugs , installed a new altenator, battery , just finished cleaning the ICV and the problem is still there so if anyone has any ideas they would be appriciated.

oh ya and i took it to a shop and they told me it was my timing chain and i needed to change it but quoted me at $4900.00 let me know what u think

You might have a vacuum leak. Check your TB, sometime the gasket fail or your MAF is dirty and just need some cleaning also. Yes, Cleaning the ICV is good, but if your ICV doesn't work, its don't make a difference if you clean it.
