yes, there is also just a natural warm up process for the car. It generally revs around 1000 rpm while cold, but only 700 when warm. so that's the extra surge you feel...it also seems a little delayed in reacting...another symptom of cold engine.Mark98 said:any of you guys ever notice your TSX acting funny when the engine is cold? i feel mine "jerking" when i start to accelerate when i first start the car.
have you read this entire thread? You kinda have to get used to driving it...almost like a new clutch or something.Mark98 said:hey thanks johnej. i knew i saw that discussed somewhere on here but couldn't find the posts again. sounds like they're having similar experiences, but mine acts really tempermental when the engine is cold. if i'm leaving my house, for example, and i'm starting to accelerate at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle, the TSX stutters and jerks all the way up to speed. obviously i don't always nail half throttle when the engine is cold, but i have to sometimes to get into traffic. i've never had another fuel injected car do this, and that's why i'm convinced it has to have something to do with the DBW. i guess that's what warranties are for! lol :laugh:
You can always taken it in after a couple of months, but give it some time to get used to...if you still think there might be something wrong then take it in.Mark98 said:yeah, i re-read it. thanks for your help...i thought something was wrong with my car but i guess not. i think it's more "cold engine" than anything.
I think this this a separate issue: how to coordinate the clutch and the gas pedal to get the smoothest shifts. This is different on different cars ...nachob said:I took mine in and I showed the mechanic how it would lurch when going at high RPMs from first to second gear ...
