Any Ideas???

This is the second time I experienced this.... I'll be driving my 94325is when \iuddenly it will lose power and have a period of hesitation... it lasts for 5 minutes or less, then it seems fine. happened about a month ago for the first time, then again today... I did stall the engine just before it happened today. I was pulling out of a parking space slowly and didn't give it enough gas. started it back up and had the problem. I do not remember if I stalled it the last time it happened, but it was the day I picked it up after having a new clutch installed, and it did happen right after I stopped, and being a new clutch, I may have stalled it then too, but I cannot say for sure. any idea what may be happening, or if the stalling is playing a part in all this... there are no indicators lighting up on the dash... any help appreciated...

Either... if I try to accelerate it'll sputter and lose power... driving slow seems to be better, that is, less noticable, but I still feel it lose power...

I would say from personal experiences those are early signs of fuel system malfunctioning (very common in 1994 E36)..but i have an auto car...manuals are alittle different

i dont think so, seems like ur losing power to the injectors, does ur check engine light come on? could be bad injectors,did u check the ground? sounds very identical to waht happened to me....
