Hi can anyone help?
For a little while now i have noticed that my car makes a weird noise when accelerating at low speeds.
It always seems to happen when for e.g. coming off a roundabout. If the car is in 2nd or 3rd gear and between 1500-2000 revs, when i press down on the accelerator their is a deep noise and 'lag' until the car gets over 2000 revs and then picks up a bit of speed.
I thought maybe i was driving in the wrong gear, but the car is travelling a bit fast to change down to 1st (from 2nd) or to 2nd (from 3rd).
Also i thought maybe i was pressing the accelerator pedal down too far, (im not puting it flat down to the floor), but if i press down 'lightly' it takes for ever to speed up again.
When my car went for a service i told the dealer about it, but when the mechanic drove it, he didnt notice any noises. So i dont really want to go back and try to explain it again and feel like an idiot, when the mechanic drives it again and tells me there is nothing wrong.
Maybe its just me?
Is this normal, and i have just started to notice it?
