Exclamation low Idle problem,why?

Hello fellow B owners! I am new at this forum and a new B owner! super nice car.Although i have been experiencing problem with the idle and at low rpm's it pulls uneaven.

the car has been standing for 2 years before i bought it. and started to use it.

when i drive on 95 octane fuel, the symptoms are worse and the injection light glows intermittently.
The idle is very unstable. (although sometimes its normal for a while in the beginning when i start cold). When it does this the car sounds very bad. everything below 2000 rpm, when i hold a little gas it runs like ****. in other cases it runs good. Why does it do this?

I have tried:
*Changing sparkplugs - very little differens
*Changing octanel, 95 to 98+e85 - noticable change
*removing the air flow sensor - the car dies emediatly.
* spraying start gas around the air intake - no difference noticed
* spraying startgas at the air filter - it died

I am desperate i have official control for the car in a week. and i really need to get a stable car.

Re: low Idle problem,why?

You need to have the fault codes read to determine what's wrong. It can save money paying to do this as you can usually then go straight to the fault rather than replacing lots of parts and guessing what's wrong.
