WE HAVE A 325I THAT CUTS OFF WHEN TURNING OR AT AN IDOL. WE HAVE PUT A SMOKE MACHINE ON IT, CHANGED THE IDOL AIR CONTROL MOTOR, CLEANED THE THROTTLE BODY, AND TESTED THE FUEL TO AIR RATIO. EVEN WITH THE NEW IAC MOTOR INSTALL THE NUMBER STILL COMES UP IN THE NEGATIVE. THERE IS ALSO ALOT OF BLOWBY IN THE INTKE, SO WE TOOK OFF THE OIL CAP AND STARTED THE CAR. LARGE AMOUNTS OF SMOKE COME OUT, WHICH LEAD US TO BELIEVE BAD RINGS. THE CAR DOES HAVE A SMALL RATTLE FROM THE TIMING CHAIN, BUT OTHER THAN THAT SOUNDS GREAT. WHY IS THIS CAR STILL STALL ING OUT?

Sounds like a vacuum leak in the intake system.
