Engine problem
2004 BMW X3 Engine Size unknown All Wheel Drive Manual 50K miles

My car had a fluctuating idle and all the dash lights were on when I started it yesterday morning. It had been 8 degrees the night before, and was around 15 degrees when I tried to start it. It was idling high and low up to about 1500rpms, and when I accelerated, it had very little effect. With great difficulty I moved it out of the driveway and turned it off. I tried to start it 4 hours later and the same thing occurred. We just had the throttle replaced in Dec. After a similar incident. Now they are saying that it might be the engine computer.
Any suggestions? Thanks
