Car is in immaculate condition but it's hesitating at low RPM's between 1500-2500 rpm's but only when the car is cold. This could happen during acceleration, driving downhill. The problem is at its worst when the car is cold. What I´m thinking is that it should have that spray when it´s. It is part of GM’s Family 0 engine family. as of today the stumble has become more promenant. It is more pronounced with load on the engine. Changed plugs and wires. My 528i 1999 manual trans engine has developed a stutter (feels like spark is cutting out) at low rpm. You can make 30+ hp before pulling a drop of fuel through boosters if the secondary throttle plate stop screw is opening plates even slightly at idle. I get a hesitation around 1200 - 1800 rpms when accellerating. Sensor out and spraying some electronic sensor cleaner on it removed the hesitation. Also going WOT on 5th low rpm is a bad idea, for engine crankshaft & combustion into cylinders, we call that Engine Lugging. Once the RPM picks up a little, you can floor it and it will respond flawlessly.
