Hello jimandsuecla, you could potentially have a trans torque converter that is staying engaged. If the converter does not release, it would be similar to slowing down a manual transmission in first gear and not pushing in the clutch. You could also potentially have an idle valve that is sticking/binding and not responding enough to change in rpm and load. Does the car stall when the a/c is on and when the a/c is off? Have you had any shifting concerns. What is the current idle rpm reading while in gear with the a/c on or off?Any additional info will be helpful.Thanks

Faults like this can rarely be solved in this manner as there are many things it could be, plus you need specialised diagnostic equipment. Take it to a renault repairer and get them to look at it.

My bmw 316ti compact keeps cutting out when slowing down towards a junction. The engine/revs shudder and the car locks up. It starts again straight away afterwards but what is causing it and how much will...


my 2003 bmw 316ti se id doing exactly same as this but also a rough idle when started from cold. it cuts out at most junctions etc when putting on breaks and pushing in clutch, starts no problem. it drives beautifully when out of town etc no overheating etc. please help. i just had a mechanic on it for 5 hours with no solution.

Same problem with my driver seat


A common failure on this chassis is that the small plastic gears, that drive the recline gearbox, strip and break. These are not available from BMW .... you must buy a complete seat base frame and gearbox assembly ($$$$). Call Bavarian Autosport at 800-535-2002, they offer custom replacement gears for this.
