    throttle delay

    I've got a 1999 328i with manual trans. When I put in the clutch before shifting, there is a delay in the throttle before it drops off so the it makes it sound like my foot is still on the gas after the clutch is in. To say it a little differently, there is a little spike in the rpm when I put in the clutch even though my foot is not on the gas. It is annoying. I've had a number of manual trans BMW's and have never run into this before. Could it be a throttle position sensor or a sticking throttle valve? I've had the car for about 2 years and it has around 160K. It runs very well and the clutch seems okay.

    sticky wickit

    try a new gas pedal - really -
    it contains a position sender,
    very commom for it to be sticky
    no lubrication or adjustment possible

    just replace the gas pedal assembly and get a new
    plastic securing clip - the old one will break
    on removal. It's just a plug-n-play.
    no programming needed

    just an opinion though.............
    it could always be something else ?

    Re: sticky wickit

    Thanks for the input. If I buy a used pedal/footrest assembly with sensor, will it come with the plastic clip in tact? Also, the p/n looks like it would be 259160-10 -is this right?

    If the plastic clip always breaks when removed,

    how is it going to be intact on a used unit?
    And where did you get that number? Not even the right number of digits as far as I can see.
    When I look up your car, it looks to me like you have a Bowden cable connecting your pedal to the engine, and not drive by wire. Can you examine and confirm which you have?

    Is this your unit?

    You are right it does not look like the drive by wire pedal assemblies I saw on line. Does that change your opinion of what the problem could be?

    If you had . . . . . . . . . . .

    well then Mr.NoDriveByWire ,

    you need to inspect from your gas pedal
    all the way to the throttle housing for a problem

    and if you did have drive by wire?
    you DO NOT buy used gas pedals,
    and you DO need to order the securing
    clip.
