Throttle weird

Hey guys. Too stressed to read through threads right now but I have a 2001 330i. When I start the car it idles fine and then go to rev it it's stops at about 2500rpm and sounds like it has weird 2 step. Then when I let off throttle it idles really weird a goes up to about 1500-2000rpm then drops to about 500rpm and keeps doing that till I shut it off. Any fixes or any help?

The eml light is probably on. Ask this in the general section of the forum

This can be because of vacuum leaks, etc. should be an easy fix. But make a new post and put it in the “General E46 Forum.” A lot more people will see it and be able to help.
No one will see it here, only saw it cause I friended armenh7.
Goodluck

Are you throwing any check lights? Have you diagnosed the car before. That would be the best thing you could do first. Because it can be alot, I have the same model, but like I said if your throwing a check light, run a code reader and let us know what code it could be.
