While driving my 98 540i home this evening I got a "engine failsafe program" warning and the car lost power with the rpm fluctuating between 500 and 2000. I managed to get to the roadside and switched off. Starting up again, the car seemed fine and I drove for about 3km before the same happened again.
Needless to say, it was a long drive home, having to restart a couple of times.
There were no other symptoms prior, and the car behaved normally each time that I restarted, right till the warning.
