Hello all,

My wife's 2004 Mazda 6s is experiencing a strange issue when stopping at stop lights. The engine starts to rev up and down and the car attempts to lurch forward. When she puts it in neutral the engine stabilizes. I've looked through various topics and can’t seem to find an answer to this problem. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? It is intermittent and unpredictable so I don't know what luck the dealer will have when they attempt to diagnose the problem. Her check engine light did go on some time before the issue began so I'm not sure if it is related.

Your input is appreciated, thank you for your help!

low coolant will cause this also. check and make sure your radiator is topped off. and obviously go to a auto zone or advanced auto, and have them scan your CEL. they do it for free. it will most likely tell you your exact problem.
