Hi, I've searched for a while so if I'm repeating a thread I apologize.
I have an 04 BMW 525i with 167,000 miles. Last week I filled up the gas tank with the usual premium, drove to the stop sign to exit and my car would not accelerate. I then put it in reverse and still nothing. The car just revs. I pushed it into a parking lot and tried it a few more times. I put it in park and the engine would idle extremely ruff. It would rev up and down from 1 to 2 as if I were tapping the gas. I had it towed home and in about 2 hours, my car drove fine!! No idling issues and it accelerated fine. :tsk: It didn't happen again for another week. I drove it out of my garage next door. Put it in park. Then put it in drive and no acceleration. I then tried to reverse, no go. I waited about 10 minutes and again, the car runs fine as of today... This is so weird. I've been told that it may be the transmission but I don't know. I hope you guys can help.
