AUII XR6VCT Acceleration Problem
I have come across a wired (I think) acceleration problem. However it has only happened to me a few times but its starting to worry me. Anyhow I have only noticed this problem when I am accelerating hard in 1st gear.
What seems to happen is that I get the car off the line as normal then put my foot down and everything happens fine until a certain point, say around 4000rpm? not sure, around there. Then when it hits that point the car slows rapidly just like I totally jumped off the throtle, however my foot is still flat, for about a second or so then the power kicks back in.
The first time I noticed it I thought it might have been due to the LSD as it occured while I was cornering. However the last few times it has happened in a straight line and when there has been plenty of traction.
Anyone got any ideas. As mentioned before it has only happened a few times and certainly doesn't happen happen everytime I accelerate hard in first gear. Its the only issue I have with this car and it doesn't appeared to have suffered (touch wood) with the other LSD, IRS problem mentioned on this board.
