Running out of puff in third gear...
just noticed something on my GT JTD, when trying to accerate past traffic joining a dual carriageway.
Foot to the floor in third gear, plenty of power, then seems to either run out of puff or hit some kind of 'soft' limiter at 3.5k.
Thought I'd imagined it at first, so did a test later on, down a country lane.
1st gear - full power to the redline.
2nd gear - full power to the redline.
3rd gear - runs out of puff from 3.5k....
Unsure what's causing that. Can't say it seems to lack power in any other part of the rev range. And it freely revs to the redline in third if I don't give it full beans.
Any ideas, peeps? Cheers.
