Posted about this problem in the past, but only today did it feel kangaroo'ey,. which made me think of the many kangaroo threads.
Unfortunately, i read a lot of 'clean EGR' replies, whereas i'm sure i've been told the Z18XE doesn't have these?
The TB is pretty clean also (cleaned on the car, so not 100% clean).
It's pretty dangerous at times & nobody seems to have the answer. I'm considering getting it in to Vaux, but am reluctant for obvious (cost) reasons.
Often, i will start the car after it's been sat a while (1st thing in the morning, or coming home from work when it's been sat for 10hrs), and as i go to pull on to the road, it'll hesitate, almost stop, like the accelerator pedal is doing nothing & then it'll get going again. Once i get up through the gears the problem goes (e.g. if i was to get up to 3rd/4th @ 30/40 & then stop the car & set off again, there'd be no problem).
Today after work, i went to pull into the yard & was in 1st. The car was rolling, but a bit sluggish-like. Then it just slowed right down, like the power had been killed & then got moving again & was ok
Has done this (in a bad way) once or twice now & when it does it as i'm pulling on to the road, it's pretty dangerous.
What should i be looking at as likely causes? Sound familiar to anyone on here? As it's really doing my nut. It's not just an annoying problem, it's a potentially dangerous problem.
