Customer Question


I have a 325 ( 2007) M sport convertible BMW.

Until today have not had any problems. Today whilst starting the car it revved up to 1500 rpm ( without me touching the accelerator). This happens all the timee I stop the engine and start it. The car is fine whilst driving.

Do you know what the problem could be?

Hi Steve, no warning lights come on and after around 30 seconds the revs then drop to between 600 - 800

Expert:  Steve replied 4 years ago.
Is 600-800 normal?

Is it steady at that point?

600 - 800 is normal and stable
