Hey, my mom has a 2k1 SE w/ PP. Its been a great car for the 1st 3k miles. All of a sudden the other day her CE light came on and her car started having bad hesitant rev/idle between 500-3k RPMs. The cars idle jumps between 500-1k RPM, and it hesitates somewhat. I know its not misfiring and the timing isn't off b/c the car still feels fast. Any ideas b4 I take it to the stealership?

Did it happen after a fill up, sometime a bad tank of gas can cause that sorta thing.

No actually it got bad towards the end of the last tank and it got a little better when she just filled up today.

I know my dad had a similar problem in his 5 series bmw, he filled up at the station and the car just drive so bad and would stall, it turned out he got the bottom of the stations fuel so it was full of deposits, this could be what happened. So your saying it has improved since the recent fill up, I'd take it to the dealer, whatever the reason for it happening they will fix it under warranty. Good Luck

yeah it got better with the fill up. She's gonna call the dealer anyway for an oil change. Hopefully they won't try to coax anything. BASTARDS :).

Hey Greg! Yeah man, have her take it to the dealership, and they should take care of it under warranty. :) Hope everything works out man.
