1.25 initial throttle responsw

7 posts in this topic

Anyone notice with their 1.25 MK6 that upon normal pull away there seems to be a slight lack of throttle response, on that initial throttle opening as it were, where the car could easily(and has done)stall, so you just have to give it that extra bit of throttle.

Cheers Pete

I'm just wondering... with all this swapping for newer models you've been doing... has it hit your wallet hard?

I was under the impression that once your car has left the garage it's value goes down £1000!

The reason i ask is because i bought a Ford Fiesta a couple of months ago and im already bored of it. I would like something else but i don't want to go taking it back and losing a grand or more ! then have to pay the extra money for a better car!

Mine's happening only in 2nd gear. Never on the 1st, 3rd,etc...My solution: Use the first gear up to 3000rpm before shifting to 2nd, thus gaining more momentum to the car. Flat spot no more.
