Question about 1997 BMW 318
HI! It may not be the sensors nor the alternator. I suspect a faulty water pump and a clogging radiator in the car. If its bad, the water wont circulate and may cause your engine to be hot enough to shut itself off. Have it replaced to get your car cool and you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
