Question about BMW Cars & Trucks
Without any further info, it sounds like a transmission fluid issue.
If it was running fine when level and started acting up while in an incline, you may not have sufficient transmission fluid in the transmission.
The fact that it started to move slowly then went ok once level is an indication. If you continue to drive in this condition, you could damage your transmission.
You should have your fluid checked (some of these newer transmission are 'sealed', meaning there is no 'dipstick', but any competent shop can check the level and the condition of the oil)
Are you the original owner? If you bought it used, you may have uncovered the reason for selling, which I've heard can be temporarily masked by using additives, etc.
Any major transmission repair is going to be expensive...2~3 k

The only thing that comes to mind is the catalytic convertor in the exhaust system.It can become restricted,reducing flow in the exhaust system,which also reduces engine power.These convertors run at fairly hot temperatures,and the extreme heat and conditions aggravated,or overloaded it.It's not very expensive to have it checked at a reputable muffler shop.I have seen extreme instances where this caused parts of the exhaust system to turn red,glowing hot.

You sould have recieved a "recall" notice in the mail about the cruise control for fire and failure issues. they are adding a fusable link where the cruise control harness connects to the brake master cylinder. if you have not had the recall performed yet you should SERIOUSLY consider getting it done, mainly so it doesnt catch fire, but "could" be the result of the failure you've been experiancing! btw, almost ALL Ford vehicles have been affected with the cruise control recall. hope this helps!
