2001 m3 accelerates on its own
Hello, I've had my m3 for a couple months now and had no real major issues until the other day, when I got on the highway entrance ramp, I was rolling down the ramp in 4th gear without touching the gas, hovering above brake pedal and all of a sudden I felt it pull so I clutched in and the engine was revving up to 4-5k rpm, I pumped the gas and went down.
I noticed it does this mostly on ramps when I turn quite a bit
Car has k&n intake which I know it affects rpm but it hasn't done that before.
Changed the battery the day before (battery wasn't recommended by BMW but it had over the specs that it requires)
I read something about sticky throttle but I'm not sure if that could be it, it just doesn't seem similar to my problem
Any help would be much appreciated
