    Might be a fuel problem, i.e. the fuel filter, fuel pump or the pressure regulator is sticking.

    Strange Cold Idle Problem 95 530i 156Kmi

    When it's cold in the morning (30's F), the car starts and idle fine but if I come to a stop sign after only a few minutes, the check engine light would come on. If I just give it a little more gas, the CEL turns off and won't come back if the car is driven to get hot. I would drive for 30 miles to a store and shut off the engine. I restart the car after 10 minutes. The car cranks but immediately would die unless I give it a good dosage of gas. I have gotten 1212 and 1213 error codes so I have replaced all the vacuum hoses, O2 sensors, ICV valve, and temperature sensor. The problem persists. Any idea is appreciated.
