My 1994 530ia also does this when it is cold outside. I haven't worried about it since it "catches" and runs smoothly in a couple of seconds. The only thing I can figure is that it has something to do with the idle control valve. My block has also been replaced.

It's not the block---the block was replaced.

When she is cold and sitting outside she doesn't start very well. It cranks once and catches, however, it stumbles a bit.

anything you guys would check out?
