CTR 2007 ~3000rpm problem
Bare with me here. My english isn't the best but I will try to describe best as possible.
I own a 2007 CTR GT and sometime mid winter I started to get a fault that didn't really bother me much at the time but the more I've been thinking about it, the more I feel that I need to find out IF its a problem for starters.
I've asked some co-workers and such and have not recieved any clear suggestions about it.
First thing first. I'm pretty sure this only happens, atleast shows itself the most, when I drive off from a cold start (eg. car been standing unused for atleast 10 hours).
When I rev to roughly 3000 rpm, usually in second gear, I can't maintain the throttle at this rev and instead the car starts acting like a kangaroo or something and i have to press down the clutch, or rev higher to get rid of it.
Revving the engine from zero and all the way up close to the red line with no gear is no problem at all, but when you actually drive with gear in, this happens.
And it seems to go away minutes later when the engine is warm, but it feels overall, like it doesn't rev even and smooth from 0-8000 at all times.
Thing is, I dont remember this behaviour before this winter and it's really bugging me cause I have fallen in love with this car.
I wasn't interested in cars at all, and then I took a ctr for a test drive and the rest is history.
