engine stops while driving

My 1987 325 IS has justed started to act up. I would drive the car as normal and the engine just turns off. All the other electrical devices are still on. I would be able to just restart the car immediately, but now it takes at least 3 to 4 times for it to start. I need some help.

Thanks,

Glenn

check/replace spark plugs, cap and rotor. check/replace your air filter, fuel filter. does it idle rough? when it is started how does it rev? snappy? or does it lag and then pick up. seem to have a lack of power?
