In Reply to: 2nd gear sometimes holds revs (323) posted by JC on March 05, 1999 at 11:41:42:
I have the same problem with my 323. There is another guy also, but I cant remember his name. This is the only thing I have had my service dept look at, and of course I got the standard "could not recreate problem". I tend to think it has something to do with the OBDII. But on the other hand, I would imagine that many other people here would have posted something about it if they were experiencing the same problem. At any rate, I don't like it because it makes the car hard to drive smoothly. If you have your car serviced, I would be interested to know what the outcome is.
: Sometimes I notice that when my revs are
: 3k or above in 2nd gear and then I try
: to shift to 3rd, the revs don't drop as
: quickly as the other gears do. This
: results in a slight lurch of the car.
: The car's only got 400 miles on it so I'm
: still taking it a bit easy.
: Can anyone tell me if this is normal? My
: other non-BMW cars ever did this.
