    OK so not all the time but every once in a while I get a small lurching feeling when I roll up on a stop sign and hold the brake, usually when it is not warmed up yet. Any thoughts, comments etc????:rules:

    Maybe your transmission is taking too long to downshift, Has your trans ever been serviced before?

    When I'm stopped or creeping along in traffic I have this in my car. I've always thought it was just me letting off the brake a little so the transmission was trying to drag me along.

    when the compressor kicks on the engine will come up in RPM to compensate for the extra load and that may be what your feeling

    that's probably what it is, makes sense. Don't think I need to service tranny yet, only 15 k on it:great:
