Q: Low Engine Idle on 2003 BMW 330Ci

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My 330 has been idling very low lately sometimes to the point where it feels like the engine wants to shut off. What could be the problem?
(1) Answer
The low idle condition with your 2003 BMW 330Ci may be caused by a dirty throttle body. Debris can build up around the throttle body restricting the air flow at idle causing a low idle condition. Cleaning the throttle body with some brake cleaner sprayed on a shop rag may help restore the idle speed to a more normal range.
