    Default 2.2 petrol thump on throttle take up

    hi i have a 2,2 that say you cruise with no throttle eg down a hill or to slow down , then gently and lightly reaplly the throttle instead of a gentle increase in power there is a thump of power like i have bange hte throttle down , this doesnt happen if the car already has revs on

    hope this makes sense im just wondering if this is a feature?
