Hi All. I'm a new member (see my intro in appropriate forum).
I want to send a big thanks to Dudesky for the post on "E36 common faults". This information is invaluable and you are to be commended!
I posted the following message on a yahoo group and thought I'd seek feedback here:
Every now and then my car will skip or jump a bit as I accelerate from
a traffic light. I will try to describe this the best way that I can
because it's not happening often.
The 'bump' feels like it is from the transmission or engine. It's
almost like the engine mount is loose and that it is going to seperate
from the car, or that the transmission is going bad. When I described
it to my BMW tech (a 20-yr BMW-only expert recommended in an online
BMW forum for his honesty and fair price), he says it's not the trans.
The problem is it's happening so infrequent that I can't demonstrate
it to him (a couple of times in a day and every 5-6 days). This is
very scary to me. I'm committed to this car so it has to be resolved,
whatever it is. I appreciate any feedback or similar experiences!
