what octane are you running? does it in first gear and is it just a quick happening concern or does this happen the entire time of acceleration?
I put a bunch of miles on my 1.4T this weekend on Labor Day vacation. But I have noticed at take off from a dead stop it chugs a little bit, almost like the front end is vibrating. Kinda like if I took the traction control off and just mashed it, the front end kinda goes loose. I only have like 1500 miles on my Eco and it is bothering me that I go to take off and I can feel it in the front end.
Anyone else experience something similar?
Hey Gmoney,So I owe 2012 ECO version and lately I have noticed that my car has been chugging at the stop light. Anybody knows anything about it? It seems like it only does whenever is at the stop light in drive. I just started using 91 and I also put a seafoam in it too like 200 miles ago. Any help is appreciated!
I read about the plug gap on a sticky, is there clarification if the MY 2015 (ECO) have also noted the gap being wrong? And is the goal still around .035"?Sorry if this has been addressed, but have you checked your spark plug gap?
The plugs on the 1.4T can be run up to 0.037" However, due to plug gap growth you will very likely start experiencing spark blowout under higher loads starting around 2500 RPM. Because of this GM came back and changed the gap for new plugs to be 0.025" to 0.0274". Set new plugs to 0.028 and older plugs to 0.030". I just put my NGK BRK7EIX plugs back in and set them to 0.029".
