My Ride: 93 318
all this time i thought it was a bimmer, turns out it is a toyota... please help!

so my 93 318 has been having a small idling issue. it would rev between 2500 and 2800 at idle when it warmed up. didnt seem to be a big deal. but yesterday i let my cousin borrow it. he is driving down the road and the throttle goes wide open and sticks. now when you start it it instantly floors it. i tried unplugging certain sensors to try and troubleshoot a bit. but i havent worked on bimmers that much so i could use some help if anyone has any ideas. thanks for reading and any help

way to be useless. I have many friends with e30s from the 80's that run circles around E46's on stock motors with 200k+

Ignorance..

anyway, if you're throttle is stuck open, have you checked the throttle assembly? Your butterfly valve may be stuck open, and you may also have a few vacume leaks. This would explain the high idle
