I have a 1994 960. It has developed a glitch. It idles fine when cold, but as it warms up it starts idling erratically-bouncing between about 500-900 rpm. It hasn't displayed a code so I'm stumped. Any ideas would be appreciated.

clean your idle control valve and your butterfly at your throttle with throttle cleaner or carb cleaner,and flush out your radiator with radiator cleaner as your cold start sensor may be sticking due to dirt or rust that will clean your sensor.

Wow I hadn't thought about that. Thanks for the suggestion-I'll try it.
