Why does my 2000 camaro 3.8 have a random surge during acceleration when the Asr is turned on?


ASR is your traction control, the reason why you have a surge is that the ASR is calculating how much force to give to each tire based on sensor data, and this takes time. When you turn it off, the acceleration is treated like any other car with out traction control. The 2000-2003 Camaro had one big complaint, a laggy traction control. You could potentially fix this by replacing the computer unit with a faster aftermarket model and changing sensors out with more efficient models, also tuning the engine can help reduce lag time or acceleration delay.

2001 camaro engine surge on acceleration


"SURGE" Loses power a little? Common problem is the EGR valve gets a confusing message.It sees many sensor inputs from the ECU and if one of many is sending the wrong message it will open up,falsely. FIND the EGR valve and plug the vacuum source and try the car again. if problem is not there,there should be an investigation by a trained mechanic/technician.


DONT leave it plugged.

Also ,have a transmission expert drive your car so he/she can feel the problem. A tranny shop" won\'t charge you for this test drive.

What does soft start mean


Soft start will slowly ramp up the current to the load preventing a surge of current from a cold start. It is similar to having an automobile and pushing the accelerator to the floor to accelerate from a stop using maximum engine horsepower. A soft start would be to accelerate gradually from a stop to the maximum engine horse power which would prolong the life of the motor.

Video keeps on stopping after a circle has come in


Hi,
The video keeps stopping because it takes time to buffer (load) and the the sign about which you are talking is Buffering sign. This is due to a slow internet speed
Once it is fully loaded you can watch it in one go. It is normal and happens with almost all of us.
Good Luck and ahve a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.

Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.

Accelerator pedal occasionally sticks off idle


Hello There.

Doesn't sound serious just need to WD40 and grease the throttle cable and mechanism. It'll also be good if you do the same at the pedal end, this will solve your proble.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me on fixya.

Thanks
