97 328i E36 stalls when doing a quick push on the gas

1997 328i, manual 70k miles

when in park, reverse, or drive it happens if you come to a stop or when you start to drive from a stop. It also happens in park by pressing quickly on the gas peddle.

RPMs drop, flutter around up and down, and sometimes it fixes itself back to normal, or it will just die. If you don't press quickly on the gas and give it a normal rev, it is fine.

Please see the video, listen in the background, it sounds like something is trying to receive air, or something. I just don't know where to look first. Oil, air filter is good. No codes on the ODB2 scanner.

Heres the link to the video - [https://www.icloud.com/attachment/?u...V&sz=110555164


Thanks

It's a vacuum leak. Find and fix it and it will go back to normal. Start with the intake boot.

Unfortunately I completely removed the boot, inspected and removed the hose from the boot to the IAC, removed the TB, and IAC, cleaned the IAC which wasn't dirty and had movement, slapped it all back together after cleaning and same symptoms. Could it be a clogged fuel injector, or maybe even a bad spark plug, or some sensor? Starts and idles fine though, revs good on a normal push on the gas, quick push and RPMs all are over the place and the engine begins to resolve the stall, then either stalls or goes back to normal idle.

I remember having that issue before on another car ended up being a major vacuum leak. I also replaced a fuel filter thinking it possibly clog up.



Good luck
