United Kingdom
England Fluctuating Idle

Hi all,

I have tried searching for this and i cannot seem to get a definitive answer.

I have a 08 R56 Cooper, when i started it after a short journey the idle was fluctuating from normal level ~800rpm down to close to maybe 200rpm (as if it was stalling) then back up and this carries on.

Drove off and it seemed to run fine no hesitation or lack of power and when i stopped it idled normally.

No error codes

I have not had it on cold start only once warm.

Any suggestions
