over a long period i have been having problems with my beemer stalling, usually not long after i have started it. & usually at slow speed or when decelerating. It is always worse the days after i have been using the air/con regularly (like now). the car will loose power for a few seconds & then pick back up, the ABS light comes on but no other service lights. On rare occassions it will stall altogether & be a pig to start again, although (touch wood) it always has, BMW have run diagnostics, & i also put a new battery on it. Any ideas???. If its any help I know that I need a new PCB for the service lights, as they are playing up as well, but apart from that the car's mechanically good

I have the 1988 same car, I would check your MAF and ICV valves as it sounds like a mixture problem to me, check the condition of your plugs and see if there dry and slightly white, if they are it's running to lean..What's your Mpg/Mpk like ??
