My 95 530i (V8) start to do this. I could actual feel the car surge and stall. It was very subtle. The dealer said it was a vacuum leak. (Supposedly a plate on the back of the intake manifold was warped?) I guese he was right because its gone after they fixed it.

: Something I've noticed but never asked about...

: Does anyone's gauge 'jump' a bit at steady :throttle or during slight acceleration (ie - not :pegged)? Mine does at times but not all the :time. Always wondered if this is normal or a :problem? And if a problem, what sort?
