Customer Question

2007 honda rubicon, 2000 miles. After initial warm-up and driving around less than 1/2 mile (smoothly). After coming to a complete stop, it will not move forward and emit a loud banging noise from the engine if you apply throttle. Shifting to neutral does not make the noise go away when you gas it. However, turning the machine off and waiting five minutes or so returns the vehicle to normal operation.
