« on: January 08, 2015, 05:51:49 am »


Has anyone had this happen to their trophy... While in 2nd gear get on it some and areound 3000 to 5000 rpm
as you are getting on it to get on the highway... the engine will skip or jump...   like a miss..

Not something I have ever noticed... always smooth here... maybe just some bad fuel..

As you are due a 20,000 mile service shortly just mention it to the dealer

Mine never did that and I used to give it handfuls.

As Cropbiker says, let the dealer look at it.

Traction control kicking in on the diesel spill from the last vehicle to overfill at the filling station nearest to the motorway? (from a mechanical ignoramus!)

Not heard of any other Members with a similar issue,
always difficult to disgnose remotely,
or even to guess whether it's related to fuel supply, or ignition.

Definitely one for the Dealer to look into - keep us :028: posted !

Mmmmmm No, can't say I have. Bad fuel and/or time for a service?

Never had that in any temperature (fueling). As previously stated could be bad fuel how long has it been doing it. Mention to dealer is best option.  :112:
