Day 1 with the v6.....and a problem already
Hi guys, well my first day in the v6 after it's first mot since 2011 and I have a issue (expected to be fair)
On my first proper run to work and back 52miles,
The problem is when I put my foot down nothing much happens, the car moves as it should and then, well the rev counter moves up and the engine revs loadly but the car doesn't go much, it's like all noise and no action lol! Weather I'm in first gear or 5th, driving up a hill was fun car was Erving away but not a lot of movement.
The cars been sat four years prior to a load of work done over last two years so I am expecting a few issues but didn't think it would be this quick lol!
So I'm thinking throttle body or clutch? I disconnect the maf but made no difference. I have just removed the battery connectors and I'm going to try the throttle body reset. I cant get my laptop/multiscan to read the v6 for codes not that it's showing any lights.
Any thoughts or ideas, cheers Jon
