Constantly varying performance

Good day.

I recently baught a 1996 318is Auto for my wife, but is experiencing the following problem when either eccelarating or just normal driving.

The engin performs in a constantly varying manner in cycles of between 5 and 9 seconds. It either pulls great or performs lik a 1400 cc engine. The fuel consumption needle constantly drifts back an forth, corrresponding to these good and and poor engine performances. This does not happen when I fully step on the excellerator, say when driving on the highway, or when idling.

I did replace the rubber duct between te MAF and throttle body, thinking that this minght be leaking air in, but no change in the situation.

Please help

well start with the basics-

fuel filter
air filter
oil filter/change
spark plugs/wires/cap and rotor
pull some codes and see if anything comes up.
