Dies after starting. Won't idle

Just replace clutch and flywheel...it drove a distance of about 30mins then starting to have a hiccup while driving. After stopping it didn't have any power...could this be the throttle positioning sensor or something else...

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Maybe one of the hoses has come off?

I had a 95 325i that did that... turned out to be the fuel pump in the gas tank. Smack the floor board and it would keep it running. Just a thought...

it could be anything, but anyways...
give more details so ppl can help you. what do you mean by "it didn't have any power"?
Who replaced the clutch?
did you unplug anything while working on the clutch?
what happens when you turn the key?
