159 2.4 JTDm Power Surge
I've had an '08 2.4 JTDm (210 bhp) for about 4 months (bought second-hand from a Main Dealer with 18k miles on it - ex Alfa-UK car) and ever since I've had it, there is a noticable "surge" in 1st and 2nd gears a fraction after letting the clutch out. It almost feels like the clutch isn't gripping for a moment and then all of a sudden it does and the car accelerates normally (very well actually!). If I thrash it, the surge is not noticable, however fuel consumption dips into the 20s which is disappionting for a diesel! Has anyone else experienced this? It hasn't got any worse since I've had it (done approx. 4k miles). Should I be getting my dealer to see if there is an issue (it's taken him 3 visits to sort out the power steering pump fluid noise on cold start-up)?
