The rev counter does not shoot up when pressing the accelerator. When changing into 3rd gear goes up to 2 then drops below 2 when changing up to 4 & 5 Rev counter sticks at just under 3 but engine sounds like when you accurate still in low gear

Fault appeared after the service

Hi there thanks and sorry for all the questions It helps me get a better feel for the issue Ok if this has only happened since the service then I suspect the maf sensor multiplug plug may have not been reconnected or an air intake issue ie :hose has been left loose causing a miss match in air flow thus giving you your issue Kind regards ***** ***** Brian
