You are being evil.....Do not feed the animals...Gee...no cold start-up hesitation here...with the DSG
...maybe the grandma slushbox has been so dumbed down the hesitation isn't being transmitted through to the granny driver? (I thought I'd provide the opening salvo for all you testosterone-rich macho rowers out there...)
Add another one to the list. 6 speed manual here also. I've had the car for 6 weeks now, it started 2 weeks ago and it does it every morning now...gonna mention it to the dealer mondayMy ride is due in on Friday for 90 day checkup. Anyone ever get an answer as to the cause of this hesitation issue? I feel it in my car almost every morning at the same spot just down the road from my house. It really feels like a very heavy electical load on the engine. We even felt it when the car was in gear but not on the gas (diesel) pedal.
That's where I'm at right now. I don't have time to leave the car overnight. What I notice is that it does it almost every morning when cruising through the neighborhood in 3rd gear at 1800 rpm. It rpm will suddenly drop to 1600 rpm and will be bogging for about 3 seconds and then come back to life. It's annoying..Just an update after my service. They did not find any codes (as expected). Asked if this was my first diesel (yes) and then said something that went like this...bla bla bla. They did let me know that if I wanted I could leave the car overnight to see if they could experiance it. So for me it's still not a problem worth leaving the car.
I think it's not the fuel mapping per say, as it is an intake flapper of sorts that chokes the air off, resulting in no combustion, despite fuel being there.In my case, 3rd gear is the worst offender ... bucks like a wild horse on cold mornings when you release the accelerator pedal, so I avoid it for first few mins.
Clearly the ECU map they got for that: cold coolant/engine, low RPM, low load, is a bit outta whack
