Wondering...

Has anyone else noticed this. I have an 06 6spd. At times when under acceleration in third or fourth gear I get what I can only describe as a feeling that the car is skipping. The engine doesn't make any different sound like a misfire or a clutch slip, but the car seems to hesitate and then let go repeatedly and very quickly. The sensation never lasts long and if I go ahead and jam down on the pedal a little more it clears up. It never does it under low acceleration or high acceleration just in that middle ground, and only in third or fourth gear. I don't drive with T/C on unless it is raining so I doubt that it is the computer trying to get traction. Any suggestions?

I have the same car as you, 06-M6 and I have never encountered that issue...Could it all be in you mind? If you are under warranty take her on in, can't hurt... Can't hurt much, I mean...

Could be in my head. My wife has never noticed it. I am taking it in next week. It needs an oil change and a good whatsover after our long trip.

You could have an OS2 sensor giving you an intermittent bad read at certain speeds.
Maybe a fuel pump thing.

Do you mean you never drive with the TC off?

No, what I mean is that I drive with the T/C off. When it rains I turn the T/C on.

I thought that if it were the clutch I would feel it in all the gears especially the first two where the torque is the highest.

The Traction Control is on all the time. Why would you turn the TC off every time you drive except in the rain?

No good answer to that question judge, other than I've got it in my head that I get slightly better gas mileage with the T/C off. Technically I doubt that it makes any difference at all. So the root of my driving with the T/C off most likely stems from a Tim Allen line of reasoning. AGH!!! AGH!!! AGH!!!. lol.
