I Was Waiting At A Stop Light On Norristown Road To Cross Bethlehem Pike In Springhouse, Pa At Approximately 5 Pm On 5/22/15. I Was First In Line To Cross The Intersection In The Direction Of Picking Up 309 South In About 1/2 Mile. I Had Been Waiting At The Light For A Minute Or Two When My Car Surged Forward. I Put Both Feet On The Brake But I Was Moving Into The Intersection Nonetheless. There Was Sparse Traffic And It Was Safe For Me To Turn Right Onto Bethlethem Pike. Almost As Soon As I Made The Turn Onto Bethlehem Pike The Surge Dissipated And The Engine Performance Returned To Normal. The Whole Incident Took About 30 Seconds To A Minute. It Was Probably Ill-advised, But I Continued To Drive To My Destination, Home. Upon Reaching Home And Thinking About What Had Happenned I Had The Car Towed The Next Morning (yesterday) To A Dealership For Repair. The Car At This Moment Is There Awaiting Repair, I Had To Estimate The Number Of Miles On The Odometer. On The First Leg Of My Errand On That Day (friday 5/22), I Drove North On Rt 309. I Noticed That At Freeway Speed The Tachometer Was In The Neighborhood Of 3000 Rpm. I Had Done A Long Trip With This Car The Previous Sunday, 5/17, And At Cruising Speed The Tachometer Was In The Vicinity Of 2100 Rpm.
