Could be your Idle Control Valve (ICV) or Lambda sensor.. I'd try ICV first though. Possibly spark plugs.

Will not go forward or in reverse

You probably cracked the transmission. Are you leaking fluid in the middle of your car?

Your security code is in the BMW owners manual.
If you do not have the manual then you need to go to the BMW service centre to get this code.

Hello I own a 1998 323i se bmw. Air intake hose that leads to throttle body was cracked but replaced hoping to fix fact that car stalls after idling for about 45 sec. this has not fixed the problem but...

Your problem is still consistent with an air leak. If the mass airflow valve or the idle air control valve had failed, it should set an error code in the computer.
I would look again at all the air tubing, including the elbow over the throttle valve and the tubing to the idle air control. While you are at it, get some mass airflow valve cleaner and clean the MAF, the throttle valve, and the idle air control valve.

Engine light on, sounds and feels like using lumpy petrol.

i have found 2 areas that cause issues such as you are reporting.
one is poor voltage. check the connection at the starter motor between the alternator and the battery.
the other and perhaps more likely is a wet ECU.

the ecu box is under the windshield on the passenger side, access under the hood. this are can get wet ad corrode an ECU.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off and clean any corri=oded and wet areas with alcohol and a tooth gentle.
i would look for a way of mounting the ecu so that it doesn't lay on a flat surface that gets wet...

BMW recharge battery with a car

not recomended, because your car and the other one has computers, take your cables off your battery both of them, negative and positive, this is very important so you will not damage your ESU. or damage the othe cars ESU. connect jumpercables from your other car to your battery, turn on the other car, let car idle for about a half hour, to fully charge your battery provided your battery is in good shape. remove cables from your car and the other car, attach your cables back to your battery than start, DON NOT start your car with other car still attached to you battery, you are risking blowing the ESU on your other car. and damaging your ESU.
