Loses power

Hi guys, my car is a 2.8i 5 series auto, from cold its fine but once engine warmed as soon as you switch car off the return and start again it plays up, when turning key it turns over 2-3 times before starting up, you know then its going to do the following, it wont pull, and even on a flat it has no power, if you put in park and rev it sounds like a misfire, popping sound maybe like its sucking air, wonder if this is when starting its sucking the air then thus causing it to run lacking power, you can put your foot down and it still dosent respond, any ideas would be most be most helpfull

Cheers kev
