hi all, iv'e got this problem . i drive a '99 2L 156 with 90000 miles. when i start it up from cold it idles at about 1300-1400 rpm . if i don't give it a couple of minutes to settle to 900-1000 rpm when i pull away i will get this kangeroo affect , and my steering stiffens, locks for a second but unlocks straight away, strange that. even with my foot to the floor. after a couple of seconds jumping it will settle. it only happens when i try to drive when its cold, but i have noticed that i'm not getting the same pull point as before, not even in first gear am i getting the power. the power or pull kicks in at about 3000 rmp , it's down on power............ and fuel consumption is gradually worse. getting 260 miles for 50 euro !!!!!!!!!!! can someone help, any idea's....has it happened to you ?
