    Exclamation Minor chugging when cold...???

    Hello,

    When I first start my 08 SRi 1.8VVTi I get a very minor chugging when at low revs. [When I say minor, I mean vvvvminor] but I know it's there so it is really annoying me.

    If I take it to VX they will probably just give it new sparks and charge me the world so was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience?

    Also my car doesn't seem to want to go anywhere in 1st without a lot of reving! Is it just the way they are geared because they are big cars? I'm used to small hatches so big cars are new to me.

    My ideas,

    New my injectors cleaning out
    New Sparks
    I need a VXR

    Thanks in advance
    Rory

    Minor chugging on them is quite common, epseically if it's been stationary a while. My Dad's sounds awfully crap on fire up if cold.

    Yes you have to use a lot of revving, that's the VVT engine for you. Don't ge the best out of the engine until the higher revs, call it a poor mans V-Tech if you will.

    The previous 1.8 ECOTEC was a much smoother unit, though not quite as poweful. As you will have also noticed, thanks to the high revving nature, gear changes can be horrendously jerky sometimes.
