Mein Auto: 92 325i
Bucking like a bull

For the last week my 92 325i has been giving me whiplash. It idles perfectly and if you slam the gas it shoots foward but...... Say Im just cruising through town/highway the car will stall, allmost die (dash lights flash for a fraction of a second) then pick right back up like nothing happened. I took the car for a drive tonight and with the engine warmed up and goinga constent 25mph it stalled 5 times in a 4 square blocks.

It doesn't do it when coming to a stop and at full throttle it won't but if your at a constant speed or slowly excelerating it does it. I pulled the codes and only got 1216 (TPS) I put a new one on today and fixed nothing. Before the idle was crappy but now it's fine with the new TPS. I even disconected the battery and reconnected it with out any results.

One last thing, after my last run I pulled the air intake off to look at the inside of the throttle body. I opened full throttle and puffs of gasy smelling smoke came out. Don't know if thats related or not.
