3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
I tried search and nothing useful came up. Hope I will have more luck here . I have a ’07 328i and have been a very reliable and fun to drive so far . However when I'm at a complete stop I feel a “kick” , like car pushing forward just for fraction of the second . Sometimes a ‘Kick” is so powerful that feels like someone just hit my bumper. It’s happening most of the time , sometimes more sometimes less, sometimes there 3-4 short kicks in couple seconds . But ONLY when A/C is on… If I turn A/C off ,no more kicks . I read somewhere that it could be a “torque converter “ and software refresh might be needed . Anyone experienced something like this ?
Thank you in advance .
I don't think that is a transmission . Even in neutral or parking is still happening . Feels like when you release a brake for fraction of the second (car trying to push forward ). kick are completely random , but only when i have my foot on the brake . sometimes i feel 3-4 quick jolts . It drives me crazy .
