I own a 1995 325is automatic transmission coupe. I've had the car for appoximately 2 and a half months now. The other night, while I was driving, I noticed that there was a sudden urge for the car to accelerate as i was stopped. I literally had to push harder on the brake just so that the car wouldnt move forward. At first, I payed the incident no attention because the "surge" only happened for a second, that is, until it occured again. The surges only seem to occur after the car has warmed and only then if i have stopped (ie at a light) for over 4 minutes. But even still, the surges do not occur regularly. Is this performance normal? If not, what might be causing the problem?used: And yes, i'm using the correct fuel grade! Also,immediately after recieving the vehicle, I had the oil changed,engine belts serviced, lamp bulbs replaced,wipers replaced, weather stripping (passenger door) replaced and new tires put on. Is there any other preventative maintenance that I should invest in? Thanks in advance for your responses..
i had that happen to me, well, actually i was doing 60 and tried to brake...but car kept going, luckily it was 3 in the morning and no cars were out, well, none i couldnt pass...anyways, since i figured turning into my neighborhood doing 60 would be a bad idea, i jsut put her in neutral and turned off the ignition, turn out to be that bushing thing on the throttle, except it wasnt worn, it just slid out and got stuck...kinda scary but eh, popped it back in, and hasnt been a problem since
A morning of awkwardness is better than a night of loneliness
