Strange cold engine problem (archive)

Posted by mill on September 24, 2001 at 02:00:47:


this morning my 88' 535i had a problem. Right after cold start the engine was not able to rev higher than 2300 rpm (then it felt like a rev limiter kicks in, fuel or ignition was cut). After 5 minutes of driving everything was normal again.

What the heck could that be?
-cold start valve (if something like this exists)?
-faulty DME?

thanks for your help
