Jerky!

Anyone else find that the CTR kangaroos under light acceleration soon after setting off? I've noticed it since I've had it, and it's got worse in the winter. However, this morning the temp gauge was showing 10 degrees which should be OK, and it was still pretty jerky. Usually get it in 2nd/3rd but the other day I was in 4th, about 25mph and it just started kangarooing.

I might be imagining it but it seems to have got worse since I changed the battery a week ago. It was disconnected for a while so I dunno if it needs to re-learn something?

Seems to be fine when after about 2-3 mins of driving. Can be a little jerky when crawling in traffic in first gear...

Mine does it as well, exactly as you described it. Leaving the car idle for a minute before setting off really helps though.

Mine does this if I set off straight after starting the car.
I always allow for the idle revs to drop then you don't have the issue.

It's normal.

And nothing to do with ambient temps but engine temp.

Yeah I get this too, but I'm going to do a full service anyway with the hopes it may improve this amoung other things. I think it will always be there though so just leaving it a min or two to warm really helps

Thanks all.

As I said, it's always been there, just seems worse since I changed the battery. Is there a learning process that the ECU has to go through? Only done 50 miles since changing.

As far as I know there isn't a learning process but I maybe wrong. I think the colder weather has an effect and it should get a bit worse as we hit mid winter and worse weather

I've just learned to adapt my driving style in my 2 years of ownership with it, any slight breaking or acceleration below 15mph I dip the clutch slightly to keep things smooth.

I have flashpro and yes it still does it and I also ride the clutch a bit at slow speeds to avoid the jerkyness as reeno says

I have the issue every morning, I have a bumpy approach to a roundabout 1 min from my house and it's a nightmare every morning!

I thought super unleaded solved it but it was a placebo effect and it's just as bad.

Cold engine and very light flywheels cause this bounciness, just a side effect of having a CTR.

When I owned the civic, I also noticed that the wheels lost traction easily when the oil temp was still cold.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Its the petrol to air temp ratio.. Runs a bit more lean on cold days. Wait for a bit when you start the car until the revs drop to 1 then should be OK

It actually runs richer .

Running lean would cause erosion of the head gasket and valves amongst other things.

Mine seemed smoother when i had my ECU out of the car and then reinstalled recently. Maybe its an electronic 'learned' problem as much as a mechanical one relating to the lightweight flywheel?
