it sounds a bit like what my car does. carby VH of mine will "choke" itself at times out of corners etc if its not at full operating temp. take offs and all it sounds and feels like its gonna stall (and sometimes does) mine being a manual i can jut rev it up a lot and away i go. i usually just sit in my car till its warm though. is yours doing it when the cars warm or in the first 10 mins or so of driving>?

hey

yeah iv had similar problems when i 1st bought my car, the actual firing order of the pistons was wrong............. once that was fixed everything seemed ok... also now when im going along about 50kmph i boot it about 3/4 and it just feels like the car went into overdrive and takes off, but i like this, makes it tough on one level, but scared on another level, as im not sure this is normal.......

It does sound like fluid is low and in need of a service. I had the shudder with mine in the VH changed uni joints and fixed the problem.
