I replaced the accelerator pedal, took it for the same drive and no luck. The problem occurred at the exact time and distance.
I've noticed it always starts when slowing down and going down a hill. I'll have my foot on the brake going down an incline and it will do the acceleration "jab" and then the revs will go right up.
This is a tough one indeed...
The auto seems to be lowering a gear causing the engine to rev up.
I tried a new accelerator pedal and it wasn't it.I would suspect it would have to be the accelerator pedal or the ECU i
On my VE SV6 the auto box automatically kicks back when it knows your on an extended downhIll run to engine brake. Maybe your car is doing this?
It kicks back to a lower gear to save your brakes on a long downhill run. The revs increase of course because the car does more engine braking in a lower gear. Used to **** me off coming down the Toowoomba range so I’d flick it to manual mode and select gears on the downhill run. I know how to manage the brakes properly to not overheat them!I tried a new accelerator pedal and it wasn't it.
You mean kick back like a sort of acceleration jab resulting in high RPM? Surely it's not supposed to do it though...
