E46 318 lost power

Had my e46 a while now and everything started off fine, drove lovely then I started to get some idling problems every now and then and then one time it didn't want to start and then once it finally did it wouldn't go above 30mph with the engine management light on, after some fiddling under the hood I started it up and it was all back to normal..drove fine again but went to start it up the other day (around 2 months after first problem) it happened again? Within this time I've drove around 700 miles and it's been absolutely fine? Any suggestions
Pick up virtue from everyone
