1984 528e idle speed at stop light is 670 rpm and a little rough. I'll check the TPS, any other suggestions?

Secondly, the horse hair in my seats is now just about all gone. I'm thinking that just putting sheep skin covers is a temporary non-fix. Any "harry homeowner" fixes in mind?

Thanks in advance

might want to adjust idle control valve to gain a few rpm. (if you can). check for vaccume line leaks (i didn't have leaks). idle control valve gets carboned up with age. check with bently repair manual for specs on o2 sensor at operating temps. more areas to check just write to me for more check points. billa
