I have a 98' 540i 6spd, 79K, Dinan chip, cold air intake, & supersprint exhaust.
Coming home I went to accelerate onto the highway,the car hesitated slightly and seemed down on power.* I tried this repeatedly on the way home and there is a definite initial hic-cup when I put the pedal to the floor, full throttle....when I accelerate at say half throttle it is much smoother.*
When I started the car for the ride home, the car would start but then stall after a few secs (No trouble when I first started it in the am).* It did this a few times, until I started the car and rev it right from the get go, after a few rev's 4k or so it would hold an idle and steady but the car would not rev as quickly.* The engine was fully warm as I drove to a store (20 mile ride) and was going home, so the engine was warm.*
When I got home...I opened the hood and manually revved the engine and when I pushed on the throttle body cable lever..the engine definitely stumbled initially but then recovered.* It seemed to rev much better...a lfew small puffs of black smoke coming out the exhaust from some full throttle redline revs.*
Is there a way to test the MAF or clean the sensor or the cam position sensor????* I hate to buy a part that I do not need or doesn't solve my problem.

I do not know if any codes were triggered the check engine light never came on. But it is a good idea and I'll see if there were any codes set off.

Well, the I started the 540 today and the car seems to have all its power back. No hesitation, no stalling nothing. Very frustrating
