Customer Question
2016/10k miles motor home...

2016/10k miles motor home f53/v10 has a arithmetic surge when accelerating. I had driven 110 miles since last fillup and after getting in very slow traffic for 45 min., I accelerated and found this pattern that continued for the last 70 miles to get home. I have changed the MAF, air filter, TPS and tork convertor celluloid. When driving the vehicle with a scan tool we read the tork convertor celluloid was not responding. We have even added a ground wire to the trans from the frame in case that is why there was no reading when we checked it. The engine coil packs are showing a negitive reading on #4&5. other than that there is no dash lamps or history codes.

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

Not with me here but, as I recall we saw no response from that celluloid when the surging was in process.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your MINI?

2015 chassis 34 foot A Class

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

This is not a mini and I explained what I have done so far.

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

Nothing I can of except I did not see any overheating of the trans or engine while I was in traffic.

Does this surge occur below 45?

Can you give me an idea of the amount of surge you are feeling?
