Selespeed - throttle surge when cold

Recently bought a 147 51 plate 2.0 Selespeed and love it, however when i start up the throttle surges/throbs a little which means it is precarious when I have to edge out from between cars to get on the road. Once i have driven a short distance to the end of the road and idle before pulling out, the problem has gone. I read in another thread a while back about waiting for 30-45 seconds on start up before pulling away, have tried this but no change. Can any one advise?

Re: Selespeed - throttle surge when cold

First off, get the clutch pushrod adjusted and the system calibrated.
There is also a fine tuning of the clutch that can be done, but isn't usually required.

Find an Alfa specialist in your area that has the Examiner Diagnostic system and get them to do it.
