Q: My son has a BMW. It will be driving fine and then all of a sudden the gas pedal will be pushed down and it will not move.

asked by on

Not sure what this means. The first time it happened the check engine light went on. Then when he started it up the next day it was off and drove fine. Then it went thru the car wash and did the same thing and would not re start for 20 minutes.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
