Engine Performance problem
1983 BMW 535i 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
My BMW is a 533i, but that wasn't up there to check
So the key points are that when I start my car up, it idles really rough and even dies sometimes. Also, the rpm's fluctuate, which I know isn't supposed to happen.
The car performs very when once it gets going: no rpm fluctuation or shaking. It is only when it is idling that the car shakes and has a hard time.
I have thought, though not yet inspected, that the problem is in the air intake process or the fuel filter.
Please give me your take on my car's issues and problems and a way I can fix it. Thank you
