Before you go guessing,the first thing you should do is have the car put on an OBD reader to verify that it's not a failing electrical component,or a service issue.If none are found then it is likely air,or a fuel delivery problem,such as a air,or fuel filter,or fuel pump,...or even the fuel rail.

If there is a code for the Air Mass Sensor I would recommend replacing it. Also a common problem is the intake cam sensor going bad and not giving a fault but will cause the car to stall.

My bmw 328i misfire?


If u don't have a check engine light try this procedure to fix it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Low/poor idle


Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours,
