Re: Variator woes
I also have this diesel noise for about 3 seconds when I start up and hav also noticed that it's really sluggish under 3000rpm, but then shoots off.. Cam belt was changed 7000km ago but do you think it's in need of a variator change? Hope not, just bought the beauty..
Its a GTV 1.8l, year 2000 by the way. Is it normal that the only things it can pull under 3000 revs are the chicks? (Beautiful car!!)
Is this low end sluggishness common?
