Weird Thing Happening!

HI, I HAVE A E36 1995 325is SOMETIMES WHEN I'M DRIVING AND I'M ON GEAR, WHEN I STEP ON THE CLUTCH OR WHEN I GO TO NEUTRAL TO SLOW DOWN OR TO STOP, THE ENGINE WOULD GO BACK AND FORT TO 300 AND 1000 RPM A FEW TIMES THEN IT WILL GO TO THE NORMAL IDLE RPM. AND SOMETIMES THE CAR WONT START, I HAVE TO TRY IT AGAIN FOR ABOUT 3-6 TIMES BEFORE THE CAR STARTS. BUT WHEN I DRIVE THE CAR IT SEEMS NORMAL UNLESS SOMETIMES THE RPM WOULD GO BACK AND FORT TO 300 AND 1000 RPM WHEN I GO TO NEUTRAL THEN IT GOES BACK TO NORMAL IDLE RPM. ANY IDEAS WHAT IS CAUSING THAT? I'M A FIRST TIME BMW OWNER SO I REALLY DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT IT. PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I dont think its anything to do with the gearbox, take a look at all your air intake pipes for leaks, then I would go for the MAF.

I agree, also could be a cracked hose on the ICV ( idle control valve ) there is a y splitter hose that can be prone to perishing

Good luck ,
