Mein Auto: 318i 2000 Model
Limp Mode - E46

I know there are a heap of threads already on this but mine will move in forward or reverse on idle but on acceleration the engine dies! Is this still tranny related?

I have had the tranny serviced about 20k ago. Currently 183k.

Cheers
Dave

Quitting when you push the pedal isnt a trans problem.

More likely something like Cam Position Sensor, etc. Get the codes scanned.
