1999 E55 Problem at speed


My dad was driving his E55 along the motorway. He was travelling at about 85mph. He needed to pass another car, so put his foot down 'quite a bit' to get the car moving a bit faster.

When he put his foot down, the car revved as if it was in neutral, and there was no acceleration.

He pulled over to the side of the road for a while. Everything seemed to work ok after this, although he hasn't put the car under any hard acceleration since.

I'm not sure if this has any chance of being part of the problem, but lately the airbag light has been coming on quite often.

Hope someone can help before we go and pay big bucks at a dealer.
