Customer Question
I have a tata...

I have a tata xenon. The only serious issue with it is very low torque in first gear before the turno comes in. Is this normal and can i do anything about it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the torque specs?

Not handy... but i can remember they are reasonable and constant at around 3000 revs. But i cant pull anything til i hit those revs

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Tata?

2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ive tried nothing... i assume its normal...but now i have a small boat

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I burned a lot of clutch trying to jeep the turbo on... but still couldnt do it

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

This may be normal operation for this model here.One thing you might want to check is the fuel filter to see if it is restricted needing to be replaced.But if it runs properly other then the slow take off issue then this can be the way this is designed here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
