I've noticed people discussing this issue before so I want to get it out in the open. When trying to give it a little gas, it seems like I can depress the accelerator pedal a few degrees and have absolutely no throttle response. If I keep depressing the pedal eventually the RPMs will shoot up past 1500 and then settle back down around 1000. This has been causing me laborious shifts, trouble matching revs and wheel speed and "jumping" into gear. A good way to see this illustrated is to have the car running in neutral and try to rev the motor from idle up to 1000 RPMS and hold it there. Its Almost Impossible! Whenever I try the RPMS fly up to nearly 1750 and then drop down to around 1000. I also notice that during upshifting, its hard to ease into gear sometimes, precisely because its very difficult to give it a little gas without the RPMS shooting up to 2000 and then settling back down so you can catch the gear properly. I have no idea what a solution for this problem might be, but I have 13,000+ miles on it and this is one thing that I really dont get. Comments...feedback?
