Hi Everyone.

Just puzzled by a fault on a TDV6 L320.
From stationary without reving the engine there is a huge a disconcerting thrust forward.
The revs remain stable not hunting or surging and the rpm is low.
But if i engage drive and take my foot off the brake it takes off like a cat with its tail on fire.
Is this a transmission fault or an ecu issue. No fault codes in system no unusual lights on.
Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks in advance

Wow I've never heard if this issue, however we don't have TDv6 in the states, have you tried posting on rrsport uk, you might get some more help there!

Insure that the thrust levers are in the idle detent position. If this issue continues,
disconnect the auto thrust system, and set speed manually. :)

Sorry for sounding stupid, but what is an auto thrust system? This is first time I am hearing of this.

It's the unit behind the flux capacitor...

Could it be an issue with your electric throttle body - which from what I read has idle speed control and engine speed limiting functions, APP (accelerator pedal position) and controls your throttle body. Some how it could be causing a fault ... ?
