My 2002 325xi (216K...

My 2002 325xi (216K miles) stalls when I come to a stop. Not all the time but irritating when it does. What do you recommend checking?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Check engine light is on for the last three years. Stalls when coming to a stop.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 325xi yourself? What have you tried so far?

Sometimes. Have checked sensor connections (of those that I could find)

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This occurs when the engine is hot or cold.

Engine stalls.
The BMW dealer just wants too much to investigate - open ended charging on their part. Occasionally it goes off by itself.
