    HORRIBLE PULL AWAY UPDATE on 2.0 tdci

    i cant give more revs to pull away. the throttle seems very does wot it wants at lower revs. i tend to have to pull away at just above tickover .slightest touch of tbrottle and revs seem to surge up a bit and then as clutch is being released its like my foot has slipped off tbe throttle and it drops back to tickover. once car is slightly moving causes no problem at all. just the pulling away from standstill.

    HORRIBLE PULL AWAY UPDATE on 2.0 tdci

    yeh i proably got a bit carried away with it. iv tried everything suggested now. and no closer to a cure. just gonna have to live with it i suppose. nature of the beast. just makes me wonder tho if its just a few of us with the issue or whether others also have it but dont really realise cos you never see any other posts about it.

    HORRIBLE PULL AWAY UPDATE on 2.0 tdci

    actually bad pull aways returned. better than b4 marginally. cant work out how it changed for the better after a remap and now it has returned. this car has a mind of its own. been reading about some ford recall on forum something to do with a clutch sensor software. stops too much power going to the road causing loss of revs to stop spin and save clutch??wonder if this has anything to do with it

    What battery?

    blimey. now theres a load of imformative information. yes iv just looked at my battety terminals and it has indeed got some kind of box thing attached. the halfords guy said hed never noticed one before and thort it may be to do with a tracking device. so to get to the point. does my car now need to be cinnected to some kind of software to get the battety monitoring system reset .as previously said i v noticed no issues since battery change
  15. michaelburrows

    What battery?

    battery monitoring system??. when did changing a battery get so complicated. iv never heard of it. i had my battery changed by halfords 3 wks ago. they certainly didnt do any reseting.and as far as im aware iv not experienced any problems by not doing a reset. does my car have a reset. its a 62 plate 2.0 tdci without stop start.
