My car seems to move forward a little bit when I start it, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this. it does not do it all the time but does it quite regular.

Thanks for your help

This is normal for that tranny. It is more noticeable during the winter. Due to the gear train moving w/o being fully clutched. I have 178,000 miles on my 300E and it has done this since it was new. (11 years and counting).

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
