Spluttery when cold

Post by Mogbat975 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:54 pm

We have a T4 auto AWD. Noticed it feels a bit spluttery when you first start and pull away. Only lasts for about 10 seconds but I'm sure it's not meant to do that.

Hi. Fellow T4 owner, and yes, I've noticed the same thing on occasions. I'm keeping an eye on it with a view to mentioning it at my three month check. I would be interested to know if others have experienced it too.

I had the same with my T5. Issue seems to have disappeared over the last month. Time will tell if this was just a running in issue.

I had the same issue for the first few weeks on ownership, sounded lumpy as if it was only running on 3 cylinders on initial startup, only for a few minutes and not every say. Settle down and not had any issues since.
