    Default Smooth Pull/Hard Acceleration

    I know this topic has been beat to death, but I haven't really found a solution. I want my car to pull smoothly without hesitation (which is slight but noticable). WHat can I do to strengthen the pull upon acceleration? I've changed the plugs, had the injectors cleaned, air intake cleaned, fuel filter/oil filter ect. The car has always done this and it is starting to annoy me. Any tips would be appreciated.

    Default Try resetting the computers

    Awhile back I had my car in for an inspection 2 at the dealer. I think they reset the computers. When I got it back, there was a noticeable increase in acceleration and the upshift points in the auto trans came higher in the revs. These cars (mine='94 525) have adaptive transmission controls. I usually step on the gas lightly. Since I've had it back, the computers adapted to my driving style again. If you don't reset, try driving more aggressively for the transmission to adapt to that style.
