High possibility the maf sensor needs dervicing or replace. you can clea it yourself with electrical spray cleaner CRC brand. It is located inside the intake duct in a metal section. Do not brush or rub to clean. Use the spray to thoroughly wash off the sensor, It is sensitive and expensive to replace so be nice to it.
The spray will dry fast so don't use compressed air and don't physically touch the unit. Good Luck, Ned

My Daewoo is jerking very badly,and the icon flashes engine needs service but I only had it serviced 3 months ago.


make sure the spark plug wires are all on if they are all on pull the off and look for black lines called carbon tracking from a cracked plug or bad wire just serviced doesn't mean anything if the service light stays on get it scanned and the code can tell you what cylinder is misfiring

Bmw 325i 2003 stall


Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

I had a friend who bimmer did this. It was the sensor that goes to the air cleaner. I can't remember what is is called specifically, but check with your BMW parts man and he will know.
