Had a quick look to see if anyone posted this problem but not sure what I'm looking for to be honest.....

When i put my foot down in any gears, typically 3,4,5,6 my revs aren't climbing steadily. Infact they jump maybe 300-500 revs around 2000rpm, then drop back down, without me ever lifting my foot off the accelerator.

I really dont think this is a traction issue... My traction control doesnt come on, and the timing of the shift in revs just isn't like a loss of grip. Plus it'll happen in straight line acceleration even in 6th gear.

I'm confused as it doesnt happen all the time which i think rules out clutch issues??

Any suggestions? All i have checked so far is the air filter...

Similar prob here, first seen going up-hill in 4th at about 2500rpm 40-45mph and car full of people.

I can only get it to happen again however with very cold outside temperature - maybe giving more torque?

Symptoms are 2500-3000 then up/down, up/down variance over 1 second intervals with foot off clutch and accelerator fully floored.

Dealer has taken a look but threatened huge charges as could not replicate. Is this likely to get worse so that I can get them to witness the prob?

I'm the same dealer couldn't replicate the problem. Also told me that as it was probably a wear and tear issue it wouldn't be covered by the extended warranty I purchased a month ago. I was told to come back when the problem worsened,,,

I had the same symptoms as that. Honda UK footed the bill. 06 CTDi 76k miles. Your Honda dealer will be fully aware about the 'clutch issues' with the 2.2. When I called Honda UK about this, they were fully aware of the issue too. I very highly doubt it is 'wear and tear'. Dealers like to use this term a lot to get out rectifying a fault

Some more info....

Print off the 'hints and tips' sheet and take it into Honda. Tell them the self adjuster on the clutch pressure plate is prone to failure which causes the clutch to slip intermittently. The self adjusting mechanism is NOT a 'wear and tear' item.

I had that aswell, back in September.. happened a couple times, took to dealer i got the car from, they couldnt replicate it, and refused to accept its a manufacture issue, and said id have to foot the bill.

Anywho, havent experienced it since???
