Sounds like the RPM is too high when you are trying to take off cold. Do
you let the car warm up enough to let the choke system work? Does it go
away after it warms up?
it is cold and the car is first taken out of park. The car wants to lunge
foreward it does this at stop sighns and red lights. It has a 3.8 engine.
The engine code is B any help that can be given will be really
I do let the car warm up but maybe i'm not letting it warm up as long as i
should. The problem does go away when the car is all warmed up. It will some
times come back when i am driving between 50 and 65 MPH. Could it be a fuel
Anything is possible. Everyone has their own way of troubleshooting down to
a problem like this. Without getting in your car and seeing exactly how it
acts, I would not know for sure. My first knee jerk reaction was high
RPM...based on the info. BUT some of the cars that I have driven have had
similar problems as yours. One car had a leaking carb gasket that would
suck air when cold, ,and mysteriously seal itself up when hot. Change
gasket...problem gone. You don't have a carb..soooo. Then I had a car with
a sluggish tranny. I would drop it in gear and eventually it would slam
itself into gear and off I went. Fluid, filter and modulator and poof
So in other words...I dunno without driving it and hearing it.
i should. The problem does go away when the car is all warmed up. It will
some times come back when i am driving between 50 and 65 MPH. Could it be a
fuel problem ?
