Default Low speed KICK....

I've noticed this recently while creeping in traffic.

Step on the gas slightly, car moves fine, come off the gas and there's a noticeable lurch as the rpm's goes down. If I watch the gauge I'll see it drop, kick slightly, then settle down to the high rpm idle.

I'm not sure if the cold temperature which pushes the idle up higher has anything to do with this, nor am I sure if this has something to do with my recent Nismo CAI install....

Any ideas?

i dont think it has anything to do with the intake, mine did it when i was stock, and so did my old car when it was stock, i just think it has to do with the whole traffic deal. you know creepin then get up to about 45 then back down, and doing this for god know how long you sittin in traffic.

Default Re: Low speed KICK....

yeah I paid attention on the way home tonight it happens very noticeably when the rpms are around 1250. If I only gentle step on the gas from there I get a kick... if I slow down from slow creeping in traffic at that level I get a kick as well. As long as other folks are seeing it I guess I won't worry about it too much.

The CVT makes it worse. Mine does it too, it's trans related. It's lurching almost like it doesn't know what gear it should be in.

Haven't notice the speed, just the rpms 1250, but 15mph sounds about right in terms of thinking about creeping in stop and go jammed traffic.

Thanks for the comments everybody at least I know its not something to worry about now.

The kick maybe down shifting from the tranny in that range.

I used to have the same issue...along with a lurch up down (soft but noticeable) If I was at or near 40MPH.... After extended searching my Valve Body was replaced and walla! no more of that I am doing smooth sailing at 15, 20 and so on without the lurching. I also had and have a Fujita CAI.
