94 318ic stalling only on incline

Once I get it to level ground it runs fine. I'll try some seafoam and maybe replace the fuel filter. Does anyone have any ideas? By the way the car has a manual transmission and it doesn't matter if i'm driving in gear or idling in neutral.

I would guess that it's a fuel issue, either your fuel pump or pressure regulator is not working properly.

Seafoam seemed to do the trick, hopefully the problem isn't an intermitant fuel pressure regulator.

fuel filter 1st...then fuel pump if the problem persist. seafoam may be a temp. fix

Get that fuel system properly cleaned out... Replace filter and maybe even pull the tank and flush it... What ever was plugging it up you don't want getting to the injectors. That's just going to be a lot more money and you'd end up flushing the tank and changing the filter anyways... Personally I would back flush the fuel lines from the rail also... I wouldn't bring it to a shop and say your fuel system needs cleaning, they will force flush your injectors from the rail and thats it...

I agree, seafoam was prolly just a temp fix and may actually cause more problems later when/if it comes back.
