Help with possible engine issue
I drive a 2011 BMW 328i and the last couple weeks I have noticed an issue
where when I first start up my car after not using it for some period of time(few
hours) I start driving around and once I put my foot on the brake and come to
a complete stop with my foot firmly on the brake the car rpm starts jumping up
and I can feel my car continuously lurch forward until i release the brake. This
only happens when my car is in Drive. If i switch it to neutral the rpm jump
stops happening. I'm really confused about why this could be happening and if
you have any insight it would be great to hear.
if the car is not warm enough and the weather is cold it is normal to idle a little bit high for a minute or two, start the car, let it run for a minute and see if it idle down to 1 or less than 1 rpm, if not then you might have an issue.
Definitely not normal, get it checked out. Could be many things, either mechanical or electrical.
