Yes, Hoppy's535i... it is an automatic. Do you have any idea what causes this to happen?

Maci4Life??? Obviously you have trouble reading... "engine surges while holding accelator steady" does NOT mean "pushing down the accelator". ...it's ok, I am familair with the idiots in Canada.

If it's an automatic then there is a button, "kickdown", beneath the gas pedal. When you floor it or press the switch, the transmission drops a gear. This will make the car accelerate faster, as it's in a lower gear and when you come off the gas, the automatic transmission re-engages as normal and shifts you up to a cruising gear.

Because the car's in a lower gear so it will do more rpm / mph. This is the reason for the surge. It's normal.
