Has anyone had an issue where they try to accelerate hard (or at least medium hard) and the car will rev up and down (and thus accelerate hard or not at all) constantly changing every 1/4 or 1/2 a second? This definitly doesn't happen at slower acceleration.

I've got a 1995 E36 325i automatic no mods (except a K&N filter).

Thanks in advance,

Kris

Sounds like a transmission issue to me, like your trans is hunting for gears. Before you drive it again, check the transmission fluid. Being low or dirty (it will appear black or dark brown) will cause it to not be able to stay in certain gears.

And try to avoid making it do that, it could cause bigger problems.

The description makes it difficult to tell what's going on :( Definitely check the trans fluid before you drive it again.
