BMW E36 Idle Control Valve - M3_devil - 11-01-2017 10:41 AM

Hi Gents

I need to replace my ICV on E36 328i. Does anyone on forum know where I can source new part from besides the stealers.

Goldwagen doesn't stock the part.

Based in Fourways JHB.

Thanks

Have you tried cleaning your current one?

Yes, it has significantly improved but still have the occasional hunting of revs and in some cases the car switching off.

Ah okay,

Perhaps try imcomex or Alert Engine Parts.

Issue is with the Crank Case Ventilation valve. It is creating a vacuum leak resulting in idle bouncing up and down.

Happy to report after replacing Crank Case Ventilation valve she is back to normal again.
