'03 325 xi bogged down

My 2003 325xi lost power after driving for about 5 minutes. I tried accelerating, and the rpm went up to 4500; the fastest it would go was 50mph. The 'check engine soon' light came on. I made it back home, turned it back off and started again; the 'check engine soon' light was off. I let it sit overnight, drove it about 4 miles today without a problem. Could this possibly be a fuel filter issue, or fuel pump??

Get the codes read, even with the light off they should still be accessible. Try one of the chain auto parts stores. Fuel pumps and filters don't throw codes. When my pump went it stumbled once and then quit a few days later. Pumps are a maintenance item, not if but when. Luckily it's and easy DIY with no special tools needed, all done under the back seat cushion.
