535 episodic power above idle (archive)

Can anybody help with an episodic problem in '86 535 5 speed?
Suddenly when driving power drops back to idle speed- with no power above idle (which is steady). Sometimes full throttle will bring back power.Other times I restart engine with throttle on floor and it starts.
Car has full power and nothing to suggest a fuel delivery problem. When in this "mode" it starts easily but pressing accelerator will not increase revs but actually slows revs.
? sticking air flow meter. Revs change when I lift oil
dipstick so I assume there are no air leaks.



Any help will be greatly appreciated.
