I recently bought a 1995 e34 530i. I have noticed that at start-up, the engine shudders a bit and doesn't run smoothly - the idle dips and sounds like it will stall, then catches and revs back up. This happens a couple of times and somewhere in the middle of it (maybe after three seconds), a massive fan noise kicks in and sounds like a turbocharged hair dryer under the hood. :lmao:

If it gave me extra power, I wouldn't mind (!) but it became really apparent as my wife drove off in the car this morning. It almost sounds as if the cooling fan is kicking on at high speed just because the car is running, not because of temp. Thoughts?
