1996 318i loosingpower coming from stop

Hi Guys;

Need some help on this this have been my long problem, aside from the usual wear and tear part replacement of my BMW.

its only a 4 cylinder, however I have a problem of slowing down or wont even move, and worst it sounds like almost would die on me when I step on the gas to make it move faster,

this happens whenever I startfrom a park or a go from a signal light, its even worst when my a/c is on.

and also if it starts to pick up and push on the pedal, there is a slight moment wherein hot air comes out of my a/c until it will change to cold again.

tensioners replaced, icv and maf cleaned 10 mons ago, fuel pump new?

will it be air in the fuel lines or leak or faulty injectors?
