thanks for the added advice...i checked the cable while i was in there and it seemed kinda loose so i adjusted it to tighten it up...i did find that the throttle was indeed sticking tho so I assume that was what the problem was. When it happened again after cleaning it out code P1580 came up which is "throttle valve mechanically stuck" specifically for bmw's.
