My girlfriends car has some issues when I change gears. Especially from 1. to 2. and somwhat to 3.
When i've changed the gear and release the clutch to put on power there isn't any. It take's a second or two and it reacts. It's like it dies for a second and comes back.
It doesn't misfire or anything like that. Also if I have it in neutral and pump the gaspedal it reacts very slowly from when it's released and i push it down again. I can have it flored for a second or two before the revs start climbing again.
It wasn't like this before and compared to my car it's daft as a dead horse.
What can be wrong?
Edit : This issue also makes it hard to start from 0. I really have to build up revs and keep the power on to get the car rolling or it will choke. Hillstarts are a bit easier cause I can just keep alot of power on and start. But at flat roads it's either wheel spin or nearly choking the engine.
