I have a 2000 BMW 520i Auto Touring and have a problem! When driving on longer journeys on the motorway, usually about an hour into the journey the car seems to just loose power and just fails to accelerate. For example I will be driving at 70mph in cruise control and for no reason the car decelerates to between 40-50mph, bearing in mind the accelerator pedal being flat to the floor, the gears changing normally and the rev counter behaving normally. I normally pull off and switch the car off, wait a couple of minutes, switch it back on and it seems to solve the problem.
Any ideas of what it could be?

I still dont know what it could be? Could it be what you said.. intake leak or throttle electrics or just simply the transmission fluid - the gears seem to be fine though so im unsure of it being that?
